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 child. You have options. You have choices.
If you feel 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 our Temporary Care Program with a safe, 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.
