Gladney has placed children in loving homes for more than 130 years. We work hard for the bright future of each child we serve. But we’re also distinguished by the lifelong, personalized service we provide to everyone involved – the birth parents, the child, and the adoptive parents.
I started working with Gladney as an Options Counselor in 2004. I am blessed to have also worked as a House Parent and Child Birth Coordinator in Gladney’s Dorm. I left to pursue a Master’s Degree in Social Work, and returned to Gladney working as an Options Counselor in 2015. Deciding to reach out and inquire about adoption is a brave step – it humbles me that I have the opportunity to share information about the adoption process and making an adoption plan. Every situation is unique, and it is an honor to be surrounded by such courage throughout the process. Adoption is particularly special to my family as my husband is a Gladney baby!
I have worked at Gladney since 2004, always with expectant parents in some capacity. I’ve had the honor of overseeing Gladney’s amazing group of care counselors since 2012. The love and courage I witness in expectant mothers never ceases to amaze me. My degree is in Early Childhood Development.
Helping an expectant mother who is considering adoption know that she is the one that chooses the family for her baby is one of my favorite conversations. There are so many options that a woman who chooses adoption has as she makes an adoption plan.
