Event description

Description

At Gladney, we believe that every child deserves a loving and caring family.
If you’ve ever wondered what exactly Gladney does and what modern adoption programs and practices look like in 2018, this is your chance to learn!
By popular demand, we are proud to offer “Adoption 101”

  • How does adopting a child from state foster care work?
  • How does an expectant mother create an adoption plan for her baby?
  • How does international adoption work?
  • What pre and post adoption resources are offered to families?
  • How are we helping to shape the culture of adoption?

You’ll hear from Gladney professionals in each program, and learn “the why” behind our 130 year mission of creating bright futures through adoption. We think you’ll leave feeling empowered to help us share that mission in our community.
