GREEN BAY, Wis. (WLUK) - It was a happy trip to Texas for the Nelson family.

Before the Green Bay Packers' big win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Packers player Jordy Nelson and his wife, Emily, finalized the adoption process on their daughter, Adda Jo, in San Antonio Friday.

According to Nelson's agent, the family had welcomed Adda Jo into the family in March.

In Texas, state law requires a child to live with his/her adoptive parents for at least six months before the adoption is finalized.

Nelson and his wife are advocates for adoption and one of their two sons is also adopted.

Last year, the family shared a video for the Jockey Being Family Foundation to raise awareness about adoption.
