Welcome to Gladney Center for Adoption

A Message From The Gladney President:

GFA membership is all about connection – connecting to other families who share the bond of adoption, who know firsthand the perseverance involved in the process, and who have an appreciation for what Gladney stands for – integrity, quality and tradition. Being a part of the GFA is not only a way to stay connected to Gladney and other adoptive families, but it’s also an opportunity to give back to the organization that helped create your family - offering your time and resources to support fund-raising events, serving as mentors to waiting couples, and just generally playing the role of a Gladney ambassador. Like me, I imagine you want to ensure that Gladney is there for your kids and continues to thrive for many years to come. That’s why I chose to be a GFA Lifetime Member. I count it a privilege to provide sustained support for the organization that enabled Rebecca and me to have a family.
