The Step-by-Step Process

Gather
Information

By reading this, you’re already taking this important step. The more you understand your options, the more peaceful and confident you will feel about making the best choice for you.

Reach Out

Call an options counselor. Your call does not mean you’ve decided on adoption. But it helps to talk to someone who cares and also can give you factual information. You can make contact through a personal meeting, by phone, through live-chat, e-mail, or by completing the contact form.

Consider
Your Living
Arrangement

If you choose adoption, you can live at home or in Gladney’s dorm. Click here to learn more about Gladney’s dorm, where you will be surrounded by emotional support, as well as health and wellness opportunities.

Caseworker

Complete
The Form

When you’re ready to move forward, request the form. Your options counselor will be happy to help you with the form, if needed.

Choose
A Family

Adoptive parents submit profiles after they are screened and selected by Gladney. Parent profiles provide you with photos and personal information about each family – who they are and what they value in life. You’ll have plenty of time to select the perfect family for your child when you are ready.

Plan Your
Delivery

You can work with your medical professional and your caseworker to customize your delivery for you and your baby.

Support
After Delivery

Our Next Steps program can provide the training you need to meet your goals, such as a place to live, a job, or even a career. We also offer one-on-one counseling by phone or in person. Through our support groups, you can continue to share life’s ups and downs with others like you. Gladney provides you with counseling and encouragement for a lifetime.
