 Gladney's Guang Ming Program 光明
Advocating for Children Who Wait  
Don't worry if you missed our special presentation in April about Gladney's China program, the recording is available on our Asia Waiting Child blog (click here).  Thank you to Juliette Howard who shared her family's personal experience of adopting their 6 year old son and how they have been adjusting and growing during his first 6 months home.

The Howard bunch!

During the webinar, Pat Marcus, Physical Therapist, shared about the work Superkids is doing and talked about several children who are currently available for adoption from Hunan Province.

Gladney hosts a monthly webinar about the process of adopting through Gladney and available waiting children in the China Guang Ming program - register here for the next monthly webinar on May 8th at 1pm EST.

Gladney Guang Ming Facebook Group
Did you know that families who have adopted through Gladney's Guang Ming (Asia Waiting Child) program have a place to connect with each other on Facebook?  The group was created by a Gladney Mom who was looking for a place to find encouragement and support with other Gladney parents. The Guang Ming Facebook group has been a great way for families to ask each other questions, connect with families in their area and find out about Gladney events in a positive atmosphere!  Search Gladney's Guang Ming Families on Facebook to join the group.  Please note, due to the nature of the group and the desire among parents for a certain level of privacy when sharing about their children, the group is available only for Gladney families.
