Watch Videos Created By Prospective Adoptive Parents


Because so many couples want to adopt, Gladney is extremely selective.

Answering The Hard Questions From Your Child Webinar Recording


We were thrilled to have Beth, a Gladney Mom of 5, join Pattye for this webinar!

With this approach, parents begin building a foundation of trust and creating the structure in which their child will learn about adoption and their own story.

Invite your family and friends to watch this webinar recording as well. Watch now:

In 1998 we lived in NYC when we began our journey with Gladney, seeking a child from China to be part of our family.
