What is the GFA?

The Gladney Family Association is the adoption community for Gladney families that provides connection and support for a lifetime. All Gladney families are a part of the GFA, and you are invited to connect either virtually or with families near you.

Purposes of the GFA

  • Providing family to family support throughout your adoption journey
  • A conduit for continuing education and training in your adoption journey
  • Social Connection to families who share the adoption journey
  • Joining with other families in sharing their stories to advocate for Gladney, adoption, and adoption causes

The GFA has meant so much to us - from supporting us while we were approved and waiting, celebrating the joy of bringing our lovely daughter Taylor home, to the ongoing support we can only get from those who have created their family through adoption and have walked a similar path. Our family has made lifelong friends through the GFA.
