Hosting Services

In 2018 Gladney’s Superkids Program expanded to provide U.S based hosting programs for adoptable children.  The first group of children were from Taiwan and hosted by families living in the Southeastern part of the U.S.  In a hosting program, prospective adoptive families have a chance to either host a child in their home, or through a “camp-like” experience, interact with children over the course of a 1-2 week stay.   A U.S. based hosting program offers children living in institutions or group foster homes an opportunity for an experience they may not otherwise enjoy.  It allows the children to experience life in a family and how a healthy family functions and feels.  Hosting programs with a camp curriculum and setting, allow for activities with adoption professionals and prospective adoptive parents in relaxed settings that help with matching the host children to adoptive families.  Many of the children who participate in hosting programs are adopted by host families or other prospective adoptive parents. 

Gladney Center has been approved in 2019 by the China Centre for Children’s Welfare and Adoption to assist prospective adoptive parents in guided visitation trips to China.  During a guided visitation trip prospective adoptive families are able to spend time with children living in orphanages and eligible for international adoption.  During the visitation periods, prospective parents will be able to gain an understanding of a child’s abilities, skills, and personality.  Through child centered activities, prospective adoptive parents will be able to observe motor, communication, and cognitive skills.  Parents will have the opportunity to learn from caregivers and more about the child’s physical surroundings, routine for daily activity, physical health, therapeutic care, and education.  These visitations provide the prospective adoptive parents with invaluable information to proceed with the adoption of a child in a better-informed manner, or conversely, to recognize that a child has more complicated needs than can be met within the parents’ available resources.
