Colombian Nationals:

The Gladney Center is happy to announce an adoption program for Colombian citizens living in the United States. If you are a Colombian citizen and your spouse is an American citizen, you qualify for a "fast track" adoption. The Gladney Center, as an accredited agency in Colombia, will:

  • approve you as an adoptive family (you must qualify according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Colombian laws)
  • perform a home study
  • give you advice on constructing your dossier
  • provide you a letter stating that Gladney will perform your post placement reports

You will be responsible for submitting your dossier to the Adoption Board of Review. The cost for this program is $3,200. This fee does not include a translator/guide but that can be provided at an additional cost.

If you are interested in this program please call Carrie Greil at 817-922-6082 or email her at

November is National Adoption Month

Can you believe it? National Adoption Month is fast approaching and that means-- it's time to outreach!! The Outreach department has some very fun and exciting ways to get you involved in spreading the loving message of adoption. Below are some fun facts to get you started.

  • Personal contact is the # 1 referral source for outreach. That means every time you share your adoption story, send an outreach e-mail or wear a Gladney t-shirt, you're outreaching. Remember- Each Voice Counts
  • Outreaching and spreading the news to others means you are insuring a child will know the love of security a forever family can provide.
  • By outreaching to others, you are insuring that other families will know the love and joy of growing their family through adoption.

We understand outreaching can seem overwhelming and it can be hard to get started. This year we have created a National Adoption Month Calendar. This calendar can assist you with providing ideas or serve as a motivational tool. Just pick 2 or 3 ideas and get started. It's that easy.
