Jacob - Gladney Bright FuturesPARENT QUOTE

We left our home in a blinding blizzard, barely making the flight, then landing a few hours later in sunny, warm Texas. We will never forget his HUGE brown eyes staring up at us. Upon arriving at our hotel room, he threw up on both of us. It was love at first sight for us, perhaps not so much for him! Those brown eyes continue to be the window to the soul of a young man of strong faith who radiates sincere kindness and grace to everyone he meets. We are humbled and blessed to be his parents. He has grown into a leader at school, a friend to all, and a young man who makes us belly laugh to tears. We look forward to seeing what God has in store for him in his future.


Jacob - Gladney Bright Futures

Being adopted is a blessing because I have had so many opportunities. I have a wonderful education, amazing trips with my family, and a great family. I am planning to attend college to do something in the medical field and hope to volunteer to coach youth basketball with my Dad.


Jacob earned his varsity letter in high school basketball and dual enrolled at the local university in nursing courses during high school. He plans to attend community college to begin working towards a career in one of the many allied health careers.

Write a comment below congratulating Jacob on his accomplishments and encouraging him in his future!
