Adoption Assistants

We are very happy to announce that Ryan and Abby Brown have been hired as Gladney employees to assist our Ethiopia program. They will be In-Country Facilitators for Gladney and are leaving for Ethiopia the middle of November. They will both be available by Gladney email. We are so excited to have them on board assisting our efforts in Ethiopia and wish them well!

Their primary goals will be to: (1) Increase awareness and interest in Gladney's Ethiopian adoption program, (2) Serve Gladney's adoptive families before and during travel for placement of their child(ren) and (3) Provide care to orphans in Ethiopia.

From Abby and Ryan: Gladney is committed to the orphaned children of Ethiopia. Do you realize that at the current rate of adoption, only .03% of Ethiopian orphans will be adopted by all families in every country in the world? Because of those staggering statistics, Gladney has asked us to tutor and teach English to the older children so they can have a better chance at being adopted or will have the skills to become gainfully employed when they age-out of the orphanage.
