Being a parent is a 24-hour-a-day responsibility, and sometimes the support you need is hard to find and you’re just not sure that parenting is the right decision.

Whether you just delivered and are still in the hospital or you have been parenting for awhile, adoption is still an option for you and your baby. You have options. You have choices.

Here’s how it works:

  • You will be assigned a compassionate counselor who will work with you to help you determine the best possible scenario for your future and your child’s future.
  • You will have the opportunity to learn all you can about adoption. You can speak with birth mothers who have made adoption plans for their children.
  • Your counselor will provide profiles of families that have been screen carefully by Gladney that match what you are looking for in a family for your child. Many of the families have created online profiles for you to view.. 
  • Your counselor and other Gladney staff will assist with making your adoption plan personalized just for you, and you will continue to receive counseling and post-adoption services.

We know how much you love your family. We care deeply about you and your children, and we are committed to helping you lead happy, healthy lives while looking toward a bright future.

If you feeling overwhelmed and you’re still not sure that adoption is the answer, we can help by giving you the time you need to decide what’s best for you and your baby through our Rest & Respite Program. While you’re receiving counseling and assistance from a compassionate counselor, your baby can go into short term transitional care with a loving and qualified family for up to 2 weeks. If you move forward with adoption, your caseworker and other Gladney staff will assist with making your plan personalized just for you, and you will continue to receive counseling and post-adoption services.
