STUCK Update

Last month members of Gladney’s Asia Program Staff and Gladney families and friends went to a screening of the documentary STUCK, which was introduced in an earlier post. The goal of the documentary is to inspire viewers to become involved in the social movement that will ultimately put pressure on U.S. officials to force a more supportive attitude toward International Adoption. As part of this movement, a Gladney mom, Jane Hoffman attended a march in Washington D.C.

"... I traveled to Washington DC to participate in the March for Orphans sponsored by We met up with Gladney President and CEO, Frank Garrott and met tons of other families, many of whom are in the midst of stalled adoptions around the world. We also met with our Congressman and Senate staffers to urge them to support upcoming legislation that will reinvigorate international adoption. This is just the beginning if you want to get involved - there are lots of ways to help!"
