Exciting News!

The holiday season is in full swing! Christmas lights are up and everyone is doing their holiday shopping. If you are looking for a unique gift for someone this year I have an idea for you! Christopher Radko designed the very first Gladney holiday ornament and it's not too late to order yours! The limited edition "Cozy Cottage" ornament was designed specially for Gladney, and features the Gladney logo. The ornament is available for just $50.  Place your order while supplies last by contacting Gladney's GFA at gfa@gladney.org.


Gladney has created a new program called "Healthy for Life" which will help families create lifestyles that promote healthy eating, physical activity, and overall well being. Gladney is thrilled to collaborate on this initiative with expert nutritionists Tammy and Elysse Lakatos, also known as the "Nutrition Twins." The mission is to provide families with information that will empower them to make healthy food choices at home, in their communities, and in life. Through our information, webinars, and seminars, we will provide nutrition education for both parents and children so that the entire family has the tools they need to live healthier, happier lives. For more information visit our website.

It is hard to believe 2011 is just around the corner, but I am looking forward to starting new projects and all the excitement that comes with the new year! Happy Holidays :)

Always encouraging

Today is the first day of December, I can't believe it! Let the Christmas music play :)

I spent some time in Photoshop today removing the background behind an adorable little girl. I always appreciate the time I get to spend using the programs I've learned in school to help Gladney.

Recently, I've been reminded of the encouraging environment at Gladney. E-mails about placements always thank everyone involved and anytime exciting news is shared, several positive responses follow. The best part is that this encouragement isn't seasonal! Appreciation, excitement and joy can be seen at Gladney all 12 months of the year.

Gladney Center for Adoption helps create forever families for many and has a very loving family of its own.
