Merry Christmas Joy!
My wife and I received inspiration that we needed to adopt a girl with Down syndrome. Her name is Abigail Lili JOY Turpin. These are the chronicles of finding and having Joy!

She still LOVES swinging. She loves her babies – and sitting in their bed!

We went to a live nativity. Here is Joy checking out the sheep.
Working so hard in therapy to paint a Christmas decoration. Yes, we found her glasses. Not that she wears them all the time, but at least I know where they are now. Where were they? Under her sister’s bed – hmm..
Two fun videos of Joy
Ready to go to school….
She does what she sees- so since she knows therapy, she does therapy with her babies. So cute!

Loving and Living
Joy adores Bella
Therapy this week – Our cousin, Marlissa, has spent the week with us. Joy has been so good. She makes sure that Marlissa gets to participate – even to the point of stopping her favorite activities and insisting the therapists include Marlissa. Very Sweet and very cute.
We got a letter in the mail this week addressed to Lili Acun – that was Joy’s name before she was adopted. I have never seen it spelled out. She was Baby Girl A, and then she has been Joy since she was eight days old. It just startled me to see that envelope. It was the Ronald McDonald House that we stayed at in Pasadena asking for a donation. It was just weird for me.
Sister’s soccer game – sisters and cousins are great therapists. Learn to kick that ball – it’s hard work!
The Pet Store
Baskin Robbins – free cone for her half birthday! She is 3 1/2 years old!
