Poppy Joy

One year ago today, a dear friend gave birth to a sweet girl named Poppy Joy. Poppy's birth was anticipated with much joy and with some sadness, because her parents learned before her birth that she had Trisomy 18, and no one knew what would happen that day.

Poppy lived three very full hours, and in that time brought so much joy, and God used her life to showed us all how precious three hours could be.

You can see a video of her life here.

Today is also the day that Poppy's family finalizes the adoption of Poppy's and big sister Marianna's new sister, Adrienne. Today is a big day.

Hi Connie,

Wow, 3 posts in one day. You go girl:) Today is my honey bears (60th) birthday too so the birthday cake I bake today will have 3 times the celebration. This is a busy season for all of our girls who suffered losses. And God has been so faithful in blessing them with new life, while never forgetting. He is so good. I love you.
