Save the Date - Visitors from Shanghai!

We thought that our Taiwan families in the Dallas/Ft. Worth and NYC areas would be interested in attending the events discussed below as they will be a great way to meet other adoptive families in your area!

Gladney Center for Adoption is honored to host 5 officials from Shanghai next month! Representatives from the Shanghai Children’s Home (SCH) and local government will be travelling to the US to meet with agencies and families to learn more about the adoption process from the other side of the globe.

Gladney will hold two events, one in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area on Wednesday, Sept. 14th and another in NYC on Monday, Sept. 19th to welcome our visitors. The officials are also excited to mingle with families who have adopted from China, as well as families that are interested in adopting through Gladney’s Shanghai Children’s Home partnership program.

Director Gongzhan Wu and Asia Program Caseworker Lindsay Hatcher meet children from SCH’s foster care program.

Additional information about the two events will be provided within the next week. We look forward to having many adoptive families join us in welcoming these special visitors.
