Calling All Artists!

Have a little artist in your home? Here's their chance to make their mark. Knowing that children have endless visions of sugar plums and candy canes, Gladney is looking to its "babies" to design its annual holiday card. Budding artists can submit cover art, the inside verse . . . or both!

Entry form.

Welcome Home Hess Family

Going to meet a family at the airport is always memorable for Gladney staff. Last night I was able to meet the Hess family at the Newark Airport. Little brother Kenting (3 years old) joins big sister Alishan and parents Steve and Kathy. Kenting was placed with his forever family earlier this week.

Congratulations and Welcome Home Hess Family!

Fowler Family Update

Our precious son Benjamin has now been a part of our family since March 9, 2009. He is healthy, full of energy, eager to learn, fun loving, and a forever part of our family. He is ours and we are his. We thank God for making our dream a reality. - Josh and Deborah

A Year to Remember

This month, we celebrate the one year anniversary of Gladney's Taiwan Program!

The program started off with a staff Saturday work day, late night file organization, conference calls, and many conversations with new Gladney clients. From the start of the program, Gladney has worked to provide seamless care to existing clients and to bring bright futures to children of all ages across Taiwan! One year later, after numerous adoption completions and 35+ referrals for waiting families, we are honored to have an established Gladney Taiwan adoption program.

I would like to share a few of the many snapshots that families have shared of their little ones over the past year!

New Gladney Family Association in Florida

We are thrilled to announce that we have just officially established a South Florida GLADNEY FAMILY ASSOCIATION! This is a very exciting time and we would love to have you as a member.

Participating in the South Florida GFA is a wonderful way to meet other adoptive families, share your experiences throughout the different stages of adoption and have fun! As you are well aware, adoption touches all aspects of family life. That is why GFA membership may include grandparents, adult adoptees, friends (adoptive families through other agencies) or members of the community who are supporters of adoption. We are planning our Kick-Off event on Saturday, August 29th (location & time TBA) so please SAVE THE DATE! The dues to join are only $40 per year and the next dues will not be collected until January 1st, 2011, so if you sign up now, you will receive 18 months for the price of 12! You will then be included in every quarterly event we are planning this year as well as the South Florida GFA directory. Once you sign up, we will contact you personally to share more information about our Gladney Family Association. Don't hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions!

We are looking forward to meeting you personally in the near future.

Join today!
