Every adoption is a lifelong journey. Family for Life is about ensuring that Gladney's clients are cared for and supported through every step of that journey. The Post Adoption Support team brings together 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 support required by law or offered by most other agencies. Most of these services are provided to our clients at no cost.
One of these services is to provide information about the Texas Voluntary Registry for birth parents, birth siblings, and adult adoptees. The registry is a way for contact between adoptees, age 18 or older, birth parents, and biological siblings in instances of mutual consent.
Sharing post adoption updates is an important service that Gladney provides to both the birth parent and the adoptive parents. We know how important it is for you to receive updates on the child you placed for adoption.
Another service is monthly birth parent support groups. These support groups are held in Austin, TX; Fort Worth, TX; Brandon, FL; and Houston, TX.
