North Texas Giving Day

Hope is born in every Gladney "baby", whatever their age.

Whether placed with great love by a birth mother, adopted out of foster care, or united with a family who traveled thousands of miles to an orphanage on foreign soil, an adopted child becomes part of their family's lifeline to the future.
