Post Adoption Services


At the core of Gladney's commitment to families is a philosophy: Family for Life.

Every adoption is a lifelong journey. Family for Life is about ensuring that our families are cared for and supported through every step of that journey. The Post Adoption Department brings together parent education and training, home study services, counseling and support resources to enhance the lives of all members of the Gladney family. Our comprehensive and professional services extend far beyond the post-adoption services required by law or offered by most other agencies. Most of these services are provided to our clients at no cost.

With more and more reality shows being aired that focus on adoption, we know that these shows can raise a variety of issues so we want to provide you with a few ideas to help address questions that may come up in your family, or among neighbors and friends.
