As a leader in adoption, the Gladney Center for Adoption has taken an active role advocating for pro – child laws and regulations at the state and national levels. We know Gladney is stronger when we join with families and other organizations. Gladney launched this advocacy page as a resource, to keep families and other child advocates informed about what we are seeing, and to provide a communication avenue for individuals to notify Gladney about other issues you are aware of or to let us know your thoughts about the issues we are following. Please subscribe to our email updates to receive timely information, blogs about important topics, links to pending legislation, and calls to action when significant issues arise. We are looking forward to connecting with you.

Adoptive Parents Needed For Study On

Adoption-Related Workplace Policies

We are interested in the role an adoptive parent’s work organization plays in the adoption process through their adoption-related policies. As such, we are identifying married adoptive parents to participate in our study.

To participate:

-Your adoption of at least one child must have been in the last 2 years
-Both parents must have adopted the child.
-At least one of the spouses must have been working full-time (30+ hours/week) at the time of the adoption.

Each couple who participates will be asked to complete one survey per person in approximately 3 weeks (approximately 10-15 minutes per survey) as well as a very brief initial registration survey (less than 5 minutes) today. If all four surveys are completed, the couple has a chance to win 1 of 20 $25.00 Amazon gift cards.
