It has been a while since my last post partly due to an illness, school starting again, and trying to get back into a regular routine. When the summer ended I was not sure if I would be able to keep interning at Gladney. Luckily, my schedule worked out so I can come in once a week! For those first few weeks of school, I missed the Gladney work environment and getting to read the sweet placement stories that are shared throughout the week. Now that I'm back it's great to see everyone and work on projects that ultimately help create forever families.
Be sure to check out the Gladney facebook page for relevant information and opportunities to get involved with Gladney. Each country has a facebook page, so be sure to 'like' those and receive updates! Here are links to the different pages: Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nepal, Russia, Rwanda, Taiwan.
Last week I spent time archiving photos. This will speed up the search for photos that Gladney employees have taken during trips to various countries and any pictures of Gladney families and kids. The process has taken some time because there are so many pictures, but it will make a huge difference when trying to locate that perfect picture!
The interns are still working on the Orphan Sunday event, trying to get things finalized since November is drawing closer. I'm sure you'll be hearing more about this in the coming weeks!
I am so glad to be back at Gladney and I can't wait to see what fun projects I'll be working on this Fall.
