|Edna Gladney–Greer Garson she wasn’t|
: to say especially in a formal or official way that you will no longer have or accept (something) : to formally give up (something)
Fort Worth, Texas- The Gladney Center for Adoption was saddened and sickened by the investigative reports featured by Reuters and NBC news that detailed the practice called “re-homing” of children by their adoptive parents when there is no investigation and preparation of the potential new family. This story chronicles the desperate actions of adoptive parents who turn to the internet or social media to find new homes for the children they previously adopted. The Gladney Center for Adoption, as well as the entire adoption community, have renounced this activity. Gladney shares in the shock and concern over the damage these actions cause our most vulnerable children.
To be honest we had no idea that Gladney practiced “unregulated re-homing,” and would so easily admit it in such a public manner. We are are gratified, then to hear that the venerable Dame Edna has renounced the vile practice of shipping and shuffling unwanted and second-hand adoptees from forever family to forever family. Confession is good for tthe soul.
We are thrilled that Gladney is taking “strict adoption ethics” seriously.
Or does somebody in Fort Worth just need a dictionary?
