Once you are ready to start your domestic adoption journey, request Gladney's free information packet. After completing the brief pre-application form included in the adoption packet, the process will include:
- Returning the pre-application form and family photo back to Gladney
- Attending a group orientation
- After the orientation, you will complete your adoption paperwork:
- Gladney Application
- Adoption Home Study
While each adoption's time frame differs, every story ends with a "happily ever after" when you meet your child for the first time.
Unfortunately, we are not able to accept every family who submits a pre-application with Gladney. This could be due to eligibility, but we also receive a large number of pre-applications, especially, for families seeking to adopt infants and toddlers. At this time, we have to limit the number of families we bring in, following trends of children who become available for adoption.
