Gladney China /NYO News - What a busy week it has been in the New York Office! On Tuesday evening we had a get together for Waiting China Families at the home of Mark and Diane Maas, who so graciously offered their space for the meeting. Wednesday evening was our Office Warming Party. We had over 50 people in attendance, with families from all international and domestic programs paying us a visit. Additionally, the staff from our headquarters in Fort Worth flew to NY for the event, including Gladney President Mike McMahon, Vice-President Marshall Williams, Jim Huey (President of the Gladney Fund), Nonya Jordan (Vice President of Development and Events) and Sharon Casstevens (Executive Director of the Gladney Family Association). The party was a huge success as adults noshed on hors d'oeuvres and children enjoyed coloring pictures, putting together puzzles, and building with blocks in our new play area. Finally, on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, the NY office hosted Waiting Family Parties for our domestic program and other international programs including Viet Nam, Guatemala, Columbian adoptions.
We hope you enjoy the photos from the party!
