Walter - Bright Futures 2021

Parent Quote

Walter - Bright Futures 2021Meeting Walter the first time, watching him at the airport, was like arriving at the hospital to have a baby. We were so excited and beyond thrilled to have him as our son! He was quiet when we first met, but so loving, inquisitive, and funny! Since he couldn't speak English, and barely any Spanish, he used his hands a lot to get his point across. He adapted so quickly to all of us that it soon felt like we had always had him in our lives. We are the lucky ones because Walter is such an amazing person. He's smart. funny, kind. loving. caring. and confident in who he is.

From the Graduate

Adoption has taught me to appreciate everything that I have, how fortunate I am, and how things could have been very different. I have seen the adoption process first hand and know how this opportunity can help many families. It has shaped my outlook on life and inspired me to live a balanced, service-minded life. I believe being adopted has motivated me to always give back to the community.
