National Adoption Month's goal is to increase national awareness that every child deserves a loving and caring family. Together, every one of us makes this possible. Learn more about adoption and how you can be involved during National Adoption Month.
Gladney’s mission is based on our belief that every child deserves a loving and caring family, but we can’t carry it out alone. From caring for expectant mothers and waiting children to training and educating parents, we need you to join in on our mission. Learn more about our programs and how to give.
Learn About Adoption
For over 135 years, Gladney has provided help to expectant parents, birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees. It takes a special kind of family to adopt a child. And this child is worth everything. Learn more about adopting through Gladney's adoption programs.
Children Waiting in Foster Care
Gladney is committed to advocating on behalf of waiting children in foster care, recruiting loving and resourceful adoptive families, and equipping families to thrive through pre-adoption training. These children have medical needs, have experienced abuse or neglect, are school age, and/or are part of large sibling groups. Look for opportunities to promote adoption awareness through sharing Gladney's social media advocacy posts, face-to-face conversations, online forums and chats, and even setting up a Heart Gallery Display at your place of employment.
Pregnancy and Making an Adoption Plan
Expectant mothers experiencing unplanned pregnancies are often in a vulnerable place when they come to Gladney considering their options and seeking adoption services, and their experience with Gladney can change their lives for the better. Gladney provides expectant mothers with guidance and emotional support related to their adoption plan, referrals for prenatal medical services, and financial assistance for living expenses. We commonly hear a woman’s experience with Gladney is the first time she felt accepted, cared for, and empowered. Share one, or all, of these adoption stories.
