As a leader in adoption, the Gladney Center for Adoption has taken an active role advocating for pro – child laws and regulations at the state and national levels. We know Gladney is stronger when we join with families and other organizations. Gladney launched this advocacy page as a resource, to keep families and other child advocates informed about what we are seeing, and to provide a communication avenue for individuals to notify Gladney about other issues you are aware of or to let us know your thoughts about the issues we are following. Please subscribe to our email updates to receive timely information, blogs about important topics, links to pending legislation, and calls to action when significant issues arise. We are looking forward to connecting with you.

Adoptive Parent Survey

The National Council for Adoption (NCFA) has taken on the enormous challenge of surveying as many adoptive parents as possible from around the country to learn about their experiences. The data collected will help inform NCFA’s work as well as the work of Gladney and other adoption advocates and partners who provide adoption, training, and support for families. We want to continue to improve the practice of adoption so families that are created through adoption have the best experience and opportunities for success possible. Every child and family deserves the best we can give, and we want to learn what we are doing well, as well as what we can be doing differently to better serve you. As the Chair of the NCFA Board of Directors, I am proud that NCFA has taken on this challenge. The work of NCFA and your participation in the survey will help future generations of children of families.

Please take a moment to complete the survey and feel free to pass it along to other adoptive parents.
