Being a part of Gladney these past few months has been amazing! Adoption has always been close to my heart, but after being here at Gladney - my heart was expanded. Knowing that I am helping others, who cannot have a child on their own, start a family is so rewarding.
Currently, I am an intern working in Birth Parent Services for Gladney. Every day that I work here is different. Some days are consumed :) with paperwork, some are filled with exciting adventures to see Birth Mothers, and some are spent learning new things. Overall, this experience has taught me so much about myself, and the social work profession as a whole.
I plan on attending Baylor in their MSW program in the fall. Working with Gladney has helped me to become more prepared for graduate school, as well as giving me a positive perspective about adoption and social work. I just love being here!
