A Hardin family is celebrating the addition of a new family member. At the end of June, Chris Johnson, and wife, Stephanie Clements Johnson, welcomed a new daughter, 5-year-old Alivia.

“Our journey to become foster parents began July 17. Alivia came to us on the evening of Aug. 25 as we all were preparing for Hurricane Harvey,” said her mom. “She was the piece of the puzzle missing from our family.”

On June 28, after nearly a year of fostering Alivia, the Johnsons were finally allowed to adopt her. The adoption date was a double celebration as it was also Alivia’s birthday.
Alivia’s new family includes her older brother, Dylan, grandparents, Bruce and Glenda Clements of Hardin, and Paul and Carolyn Henderson of Palacios, Texas, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
