Gladney Center is Partnered with Shanghai Children's Home for Adoptive Child Placements

The Shanghai Children's Home (SCH) is a well-regarded child welfare institution. Various diplomats and their spouses have been invited to SCH to learn about institutional care settings in China. SCH is a well-staffed campus that delivers comprehensive care, medical services and education to children of all ages.

Gladney's partnership with SCH was formalized earlier this year and has been approved by the Shanghai Social Welfare Center, Shanghai's Children's Adoption Center, and the China Centre for Children's Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA - previously known as CCAA). Gladney's partnership with SCH follows upon a 15 year history of close relations. Gongzhan Wu, VP & Managing Director, was born and raised in Shanghai. Gladney's first China adoptions were children placed from SCH. Gongzhan travels to China several times each year and almost each trip includes a visit to the Shanghai Children's Home.

Please join us tonight, 8pm EST, to learn more about Gladney's partnership with Shanghai Children's Home and the children who are currently available to be adopted. Register here.

Proper Nutrition: The Key to Your Child's Success

Please join The Nutrition Twins as they share secrets that will help you to enhance your child’s life. The Twins will discuss the importance of proper nutrition and how it will affect every aspect of your child’s well-being. By providing the right foods, you can help him or her to flourish. You’ll be encouraged as you learn that by helping your children to choose the best foods and nutrients in specific combinations, your child’s growth and development will be optimized and your child’s focus, performance and behavior will greatly improve. That’s right, by providing your child with the right nutrients you can assist him or her in receiving high grades, becoming a better athlete, playing better with others and preventing tantrums!

The sisters will also share practical tips and simple changes that you can make in your family’s diet that will enrich the quality of all of your lives. You will feel empowered as you realize that a few simple dietary changes can have a great impact on your child’s life.
