Special Visit!

It's so exciting to have the new Honduras Adoption Program here at Gladney! We've spent a lot of time learning about Honduras (history, culture, geography, adoption environment, and much more!) and trying to find a toy to represent the country.

This weekend Gladney is hosting the Director of Child Welfare, Maria Suyapa Nunez, and Secretary General, Ivonne Torres from the Instituto Hondureño de la Niñez y la Familia (IHNFA). The IHNFA is a department of the Honduras Federal Government dedicated to the protection and welfare of Honduran children. The purpose of the officials' visit is to observe the adoption process in the United States, to meet Gladney's professional adoption staff and adoptive families. Gladney is hosting a lunch on Saturday with the officals and some Gladney families. We will let you know all about their visit!
