In March, 1994, the Gladney Center for Adoption's first internationally adopted child came home to the United States from Shanghai, China. Since that time, Gladney has placed nearly 1000 healthy infants and toddlers, and children of all ages with special needs, with families living in the United States. Over the past several years, adoption from China has emerged as an effective way to make or grow a family.

Asia Adoption Support Fund
Three years ago The Asia Adoption Support Fund ("AASF") was started by one family making a generous gesture to help other families pursuing an adoption. The Fund grants financial support to families who are pursuing the adoption of a child with a medical condition or a child
who may be harder to place due to age or other considerations. Over the past three years, $35,000 has been awarded from the AASF to adoptive families. Gladney and the families who received assistance greatly appreciate the generosity and commitment of those who contributed to the fund to help children find loving and permanent families.
If you would like to contribute to the fund, please contact Wendy Stanley at firstname.lastname@example.org. During Adoption Awareness Month in November, we would like to continue to raise awareness of the AASF and build the circle of families who can provide financial support to other Gladney adoptive families.
