Gladney offers numerous adoption services throughout the adoption process and afterwards. Expectant mothers have access to an options counselor who offers information about adoption, helps to put together personal adoption and delivery plans, and helps to plan for the future. After delivery, there are also options through the Next Steps program and the “Family Loving Decisions Workshop” for one-on-one counseling, support groups, and counseling for the birth mother’s family/birth father.
Gladney understands that being the father in an unplanned pregnancy is not easy. It is hard knowing that decisions are not entirely up to you and not knowing the best way to help. This is why Gladney offers options counselors to expectant birth fathers as well as birth mothers. You can discuss your questions and concerns with the counselor and also find out how to best support the expectant mother through the pregnancy and in making the best decision for your child.
