A Complete Gladney FamilyIn January 2015, our family became complete. After having adopted our boys in 2011 and 2013 through Gladney, we didn't realize that an integral part was missing until last Fall when out of the blue, our caseworker called with news of our birth mom. Five months later, our little princess arrived and we have been smitten ever since!

AdoptED Highlight


by Guest Blogger Ginny Manley

I want to share how awesome and creative high school students are.  AdoptED is such an impactful program that reaches students in all walks of life and I am so proud to represent Gladney day in and day out in our local high schools. 

In one of the lessons, we discuss the different types of adoption and then have students create a video based on what they’ve learned.  Below is a video that one of the groups from McKinney North High School created. Enjoy and Happy National Adoption Month!
