Some Common Questions
Can we meet with the New Beginnings staff at any of the Gladney Offices?
All of the casework for this adoption program is handled from Gladney's main location in Fort Worth, Texas.
If we don't live in Texas, can we still work in this adoption program?
At this time, the New Beginnings program only works with families living in Texas and Oklahoma. Also, we are only able to place children that are currently in the care of the State of Texas.
How much does the New Beginnings program cost?
Adopting a child in the state foster system requires no program fee. In addition, the state provides a monthly stipend and college tuition for these adopted children, and Medicaid pays for their medical expenses.
Can we adopt an infant?
Most children available for adoption through this program are 7 years and up. This is because children are in foster care on average for a total of 15–21 months before they are even available for adoption.
Can I adopt a single child from foster care?
Yes, although there are more sibling groups in foster care that are awaiting adoption than individual children.
