We flew to Ft. Worth with Gabby's two-and-a-half-year-old brother, who told everyone we met that we were on our way to bring his, "baby sissy" home. We arrived at the Gladney Center so full of awe at the whole experience that we could hardly believe we were about to meet our little girl. There is no feeling quite like getting that first glimpse of our child, and knowing she was ours and we were hers, a family forever. Our hearts adored her from the first instant. What an amazing blessing she has been! We are excited for all her future plans.
From the Graduate
Adoption has opened so many opportunities for me. I have been able to experience and meet so many amazing and wonderful people. A few of my close friends have also been adopted, so we were able to connect with each other through that commonality. It hasn't always been easy, but I wouldn't change it for the world.
Gabby was on the varsity swimming and softball teams in high school, played the violin, and was active in Model UN. She was active in her church youth group and volunteered as a pre-school worker. She loves to travel! She plans to attend college this fall and major in cybersecurity and international relations. Gabby also plans to minor in East Asian studies with a focus in China. Gabby wants to work with the Peace Corps in the future.
