Parent Quote

Peyton-2022We went shopping the day we met, after learning she had never had her own new clothes. I was waiting near the fitting rooms when a store associate came to me and said, “your daughter is calling you.” I quickly replied I didn’t have a daughter. She said, “well, there’s a young girl calling for her mom and you’re the only person out here.” A flood of emotions swept over me and tears began to stream down my face as I walked down the hall. She stuck her head out and said “Mom, I called your name three times and you didn’t answer.”

From the Graduate

Gladney is an agency that allows kids who don’t have a forever family to be chosen by a parent who needs a forever baby. My parents chose me in 2015, and I couldn’t have asked for a better family. While it was full of a lot of ups and downs, I would not be who I am today without Gladney and my forever family. My forever mom has inspired me to be who I am and not what others tell me to be. She has improved my image of myself and helped me grow into a beautiful young lady. Thank you Gladney, especially Ms. Brynn. Adoption was my final step to happiness.
