Jordy Nelson is not only a star athlete for the Green Bay Packers, he’s a proud supporter of adoption and recently, with his wife Emily, finalized the adoption process with their daughter, Adda Jo in San Antonio, Texas. The adoption came just days before the Packers scored a win against the Cowboys.
Adda Jo is the couple’s second adopted child. They adopted a son, Brooks, in February 2015. The family of 5 shared a video for the Jockey Being Family Foundation to raise awareness about adoption last year.
“After we had Royal, our biological child, we were unable to get pregnant again.” Nelson said in a 2016 YouTube video for Jockey Being Family. “We just figured adoption was a great way for us to grow our family.”
Congratulations to the Nelsons! They magnify service and exemplify love in the adoption community.
