Bulgaria Adoption Success Stories
Congratulations to our Gladney Bulgaria Program families!
Gladney's adoptive parents who have created their families through our Bulgaria International Adoption Program are outstanding in sharing their experiences to others who are going through this process.
- "Our daughter came to her forever home in 2003, when she was 3 years old. She was tiny and spoke no English, but the difficulties of adapting to raising our first child who was already a toddler were overwhelmed by her beauty and sweet nature. Today, she is an active 4th grader who loves to play soccer and basketball and anything related to animals. Our home is a non-stop parade of 10-year old girls, and the laughter we hear throughout the house reminds us daily of how grateful we are for the Bulgarian program." -- Angela and Matt
