Julianne - Gladney Bright FuturesPARENT QUOTE

We were overwhelmed at the site of this beautiful baby girl with a full head of hair! We were scared, anxious, and in love from day one! We brought her home (well to the La Quinta) on Thanksgiving Day, which seemed so appropriate. We knew we’d call her Jules and she is truly our jewel! We remember the experience as being beautiful and forming our forever family felt so right.


To this day I feel extra special knowing that Gladney played a special role in my life. I have always thought of adoption as being super cool, even since I was a kid when I was never afraid to let anyone know. My life is very busy, as a new chapter is about to unfold. I’m about to start the journey of being an adult and paving my way to be the best person I can be.


Growing up, Julianne participated in a youth theater program, was a competitive ice skater for nine years, and played the bass guitar and sang with School of Rock. Always one to try and experience new things, she traveled to England, Scotland, and Wales with People to People, and to Bogotá, Colombia with Gladney. Once in high school, she began to play tennis and by her senior year was first doubles, where she and her partner were district champions. Julianne plans on attending college in the fall where she’ll study communications, with plans to go on to law school.

Write a comment below congratulating Julianne on her accomplishments and encouraging her in her future!
