Telling The Story

Where Hope is BornYour Family is Part of Gladney's Rich History.

Turning 125 is a big deal and we want you to help us celebrate! We know how much our Gladney families love to share pictures of their children with others and here's the perfect opportunity. Please email us your best digital pictures of your child(ren) and/or your family or your video. The photos and video will be displayed in our slide show below:

Stories are another important part of celebrating. We're compiling Gladney family's adoption stories for the 2012 Gladney Calendar as well as other publications that will be published throughout the year.

Your Stories:

See The World Through Her Eyes

We want to make it easy for you to share your stories with us and with others so we came up with some story starters:

  • The first time we saw you . . .
  • Our placement day . . .
  • We chose Gladney because . . .
  • Our adoption journey . . .
  • Our rollercoaster ride . . .
  • Not knowing what to expect . . .
  • Meeting our child's birth parent for the first time . . .
  • The trip home . . .
  • I help share the option of adoption by . . .

Be sure to attach a high-resolution photo to go along with your story! Please email your photos and story.

Another way to tell your story during Gladney's 125th celebration is to post your placement photos.  We want to see all of them and plan on making them a part of our year-long event.  Please get those scrapbooks out and email your placement photos then watch for it to show up in the slideshow below!

Thanks for helping us celebrate Gladney's 125 years by telling your adoption story.
