AdoptEDGladney Center for Adoption is excited to present AdoptED. This program was born through a collaborative effort of both community leaders and Gladney staff who believe that education is empowerment for students to be able to navigate their futures, goals, and dreams. AdoptED is designed to address the issues of teen pregnancy and school dropout rates, while offering factual information about adoption as one option to an unplanned pregnancy.

#myadoptionstory - Favorite Traditions


#My Adoption StoryMy husband Matt and I adopted our daughter, Emma, 3 years ago!  We just celebrated her 3 year anniversary for her finalization.  It is one of our very favorite traditions!  We make "Texas cookies" (sugar cookies in the cutout shapes of the state of Texas,  longhorns, and a cowboy boot) in honor of where she made her debut!  Then we decorate them.  We light a special candle,  have our meal and while we eat our cookies,  we read Em

North Texas Giving Day - September 18, 2014


North Texas Giving Day

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

Adoption Stories by Gladney - Transitional Care


Even before they could recall a memory, they shared one.

Meet Brittany and Jessica, two artistically gifted, 16-year-old teens whose paths first crossed as pre-assigned roommates in 2012 at a camp for creative and performing arts.

Superkids is preparing to return to China this month!  The Superkids team will be visiting six orphanages in three provinces. We will visit Shanghai Children's Home, four orphanages in the Jiangxi province and one orphanage in the Hunan province. The team will evaluate children to assist them in finding adoptive families and work with children who may not be adopted so that we can improve their quality of life. We will also train caregivers and rehabilitation staff to increase the skill of their therapeutic interactions with all children they care for.
