Parent Quote

The adoption process is like a roller coaster ride. Some days are uneventful, while other days are thrilling, nerve-racking, and exciting. When Mary Katherine was born, it was our thrill of a lifetime. The first time we laid our eyes on Mary Katherine we fell instantly in love with her. We were excited and anxious, but ready to start our journey with her as our daughter. Mary Katherine’s placement day was amazing. We couldn’t wait to have her in our arms and not let her go. She has been a blessing since day one and we are proud to be her parents.

From the Graduate

I was adopted into a big, loving, Catholic family through the Gladney Center. I will graduate high school with a high school diploma and an associate degree. The Gladney Center and my birth mom are what gave me the many blessings that I have. Adoption is part of the reason I am alive today because it gave my birth mom an alternative. It has given me the passion to speak publicly about my story to encourage birth moms to choose life. I am so thankful for the Gladney Center and what they did for me and my birth mom.
