This is why
The Gladney staff explains why they do what they do every day.
Why - ? Because when I first learned about international adoption as a young adult, I think I was about 23 years old - I knew I could make a difference. I wasn't sure at that time what my family might look like - but I knew that I could help parents navigate the process of adoption so that children could live their lives in a family. I wanted to help parents through the "hard part" of the process so they could get on with the wonders of life - and focus on the important part. The part of life where a parent gets to know their child inside and out, and care each and every day about the little things, and the big things, that happen to a child who experiences life surrounded by a family that nurtures, teaches, and provides opportunities.
