PARENT QUOTEI can remember the day like yesterday that Keeley was placed in my arms for the very first time. She had the most beautiful brown eyes, precious little smile and a head full of hair. I unwrapped her blanket to see her tiny little toes and fingers and marveled at God’s masterpiece. As we sat in the Placement Room at Gladney with Keeley’s birth mother my heart went out to her for the gift she shared with us. I knew that day God had heard my endless prayers and our lives and hearts were changed forever as God’s perfect plan made a family complete.
FROM THE GRADUATE
Words simply cannot express how grateful I am to be a Gladney Baby. In our family, we have always celebrated my adoption day. Each year my mom shares my adoption story with details of my special day. I have always known I was blessed to have many people who love me. I am so thankful for all the life lessons and opportunities I have been given.
Keeley was an active member of her church youth group attending leadership camps and retreats. She was an athletic trainer supporting the high school football and baseball teams. Keeley has been a member of National Charity League for six years volunteering in the community and building lifelong friendships. Keeley plans to attend a local community college for two years and then transfer to a four-year university. She has many interests and is considering a business degree at this time.
