I was going to write about something else today, but I’m going to fix dinner and go read a book that has nothing to do with adoption. The rest can wait.
In the meantime, check out what Troy Dunn has to say about NCFA founding agency, the Gladney Center over on Lorraine Dusky’s First Mother, Birth Mother Forum under The Worst Adoption Agency in the World: Gladney.
Dunn posted a comment to an earlier entry from Lorraine about the repulsive HufPo piece, Adopting a New Attitude, by the repulsive faux feminist and adopter Peggy Drexler. Lorraine has reposted Dunn’s entire comment now in a separate entry.
I know that some people don’t care for Dunn, but what he says about Gladney records “practice” is important to get out to as many people as possible. Dunn, writing on why he takes few Gladney search cases told Lorraine:
The reason for our hesitancy is simple- the majority of the cases we have reviewed/researched/solved from Edna Gladney were stuffed full of pages and pages of falsified documents.
And then goes into detail.
Can anyone doubt that Gladney is the first cousin of Georgia Tann?
I have an article on Dame Edna published in a late 1940s issue of Collier’s on the lengths Gladney and her troops went to to hide her “girls” and babies from fathers and families. The FBI must have modeled it’s witness protection program on The Gladney Plan. It went beyond obsessive, even for it’s time. I need to dig it out and write about it soon.
I have done many Edna Gladney searches and I am a birth mother through Edna Gladney. I would like you to read my blog. When we were there we had false names and much more. Thank you Mission2reunite
I would love help in finding birth mother from gladney! My email is [email protected]
