You prepared us. As we reflect on the unexpected events, challenges, and lessons of the past year, we can clearly see how you and other Gladney Friends like you equipped us. Your support provides our staff with the tools they need to serve expectant mothers, adult adoptees, birth parents, adoptive parents, and family members well. From technology and training to office supplies and transportation, we have what we need—to stay connected to each other, meet our clients’ needs, and continue fulfilling our mission of Creating Bright Futures Through Adoption—because of you. You sustain us.
We are not immune to the challenges many individuals, families, and organizations are currently facing. Our caseworkers remain on the frontlines—continuing to serve expectant mothers who are making an adoption plan, care for teenage girls in foster care in the Gladney Home, advocate to find adoptive families for waiting children in state foster care and international orphanages, be with adoptive families when their new children are placed with them, and educate and equip families to thrive. Thank you for thinking of Gladney and supporting our clients.
Gladney promises to be Family for Life. The adoption journey is unique and personal to each birth parent, child, adoptive parent, and adult adoptee. Our clients all have different challenges, strengths, needs, and experiences. What connects all of us is that we navigate the journey together. Thank you for your investment and involvement in our clients’ lives. Your support allows Gladney to be present and meet their individualized needs in a personal way—step by step, through changing seasons of life … during their adoption process and for years to come.
We feel grateful and renewed when we see people wanting to help, and our shared belief that Every Child Deserves a Loving and Caring Family keep us moving forward. We appreciate you!
There are several ways to stay connected: follow and engage with Gladney on Facebook and Instagram, advocate to find a family for a waiting child featured on a Gladney blog post, participate in a Gladney University webinar, watch and share Gladney client story videos on YouTube, listen to a Birth Mothers Amplified podcast episode or ShiftED podcast episode, or refer a friend who is considering adopting a child to adoption.com to research resources.
