FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Gladney Center for Adoption has much to celebrate. November is National Adoption Month – a time to remember families created through the miracle of adoption. The Gladney Center participates in this celebration by honoring birthparents, adoptive parents and the almost 30,000 children placed with loving families through the agency’s comprehensive adoption services.
It is fitting for National Adoption Month to be positioned in the month of November, during a time of Thanksgiving. Using white ribbons to raise awareness, National Adoption Month celebrates families touched by adoption, honors birth mothers for their courageous choice, and remembers children who still need permanent homes.
Birthmothers who are considering adoption through The Gladney Center may live on the Fort Worth campus or can live at home while participating in the agency’s Community Service Program. In either case, dedicated social workers help expectant mothers make a personalized adoption plan that is best for her and her child. Gladney offers clients the following free services: openness and flexibility in the adoption process, private medical care, legal services, counseling, education opportunities and lifelong post-adoption services.
In addition to placing children born in the United States, Gladney’s inter-country program is committed to finding permanent homes for children around the world. Adoption opportunities are available in several countries in Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Africa.
Gladney continues to provide outstanding support to all clients. In addition, Gladney Family Associations (GFAs) are located around the nation. The GFAs educate communities about the merits of adoption, provide support for one another through the adoption process and raise money to assist with humanitarian needs here at home and around the world. Please join us in raising awareness about the miracle of adoption through the celebration of National Adoption Month. After all, Gladney is a place “where hope is born.”
