she is such a joy...

meet ada joy... born October 20th 2009. She is the brand new adopted daughter of one of my best friends here in Greeneville. Ever since the Koppins were first married, Brett and Carrie, had a tug on their hearts for adoption. They have a biological daughter named Mary Elizabeth who is 4 now and also very excited about adoption of a brother or sister.
Traveling this adoption road with them has been a blessing to many people. God showed his provision time after time. there were also many times of questioning, trials of faith and patience, but in the end this family has been given the best little gift in Ada Joy.
She truly is a JOY to this family and also to the families around her. This little lady is going to grow up knowing LOVE that is for sure. the love of MANY families and the love of her heavnly father.
the girls and i came over for a play day with mary elizabeth and ada and i just couldnt resist getting my camera out for an unofficial photo shoot.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17
