We are so thankful for compassionate Gladney Friends like you, who believe in our mission of Creating Bright Futures through Adoption and want to help in tangible ways. A meaningful and personal way you can help is by writing notes of encouragement for our clients and caseworkers.

You can mail or hand deliver notes to our Fort Worth campus:
6300 John Ryan Drive
Fort Worth, Texas 76132

Before you get started, here are a few guidelines

  • On your notes, please only sign your first name, not your last.
  • Please leave the envelopes unsealed.
  • Please keep in mind that we serve clients from a variety of faith backgrounds that may be different from yours and their reasons for choosing adoption cary as well.
  • If you have children, please get them involved in making artwork and writing notes, too!


Ready to Write? Below are groups to choose from, along with a few template notes of encouragement to get your creative juices flowing.

1. Pre-teen and teen girls in foster care in the Gladney Home:

  • Your voice and story matter. I believe in your future.
  • You are thought of and cared about. I believe in you.

2. Couples in the process of adopting a child through Gladney (domestic infants, children from foster care, and children from international orphanages):

  • You are perservering. What a story of love you will have to share with your child.
