Joy Casey is a wife, a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 2. In 2007, she visited Ethiopia for the first time. It was then God ignited a great love in her for the land and people of Ethiopia. God revealed His heart for destitute women and for children without family to care for them. Over the years her vision expanded from placing children for international adoption to recruiting and empowering Ethiopians to adopt the children in their own community. Joy is working tirelessly to bring the adoption message to the Ethiopian church community and is delighted that the majority of the children in NewLife’s orphanage are being adopted by local Ethiopian families.
