Sweet Poppy is ours.
The adoption was made final today, and this precious little one is ours forever.
So please forgive the lack of pictures, but honestly, she spent the vast majority of the day on my hip or on my lap.
And well, that just breaks my heart.
And asking Zach to help with the rest.
And me getting to take pictures of Poppy, well… it’s gonna have to wait.
Poppy is honestly really, really frightened. And while I have definitely experienced some tough times with both Vivienne and Jude in China, that wasn’t anything like this.
She is eating some, and drinking well, but really, other than sitting and staring, or crying, she won’t do anything else.
If I put her down, she freezes and screams. If I give her a toy or a bubble to play with, she won’t even move her hand. If I give her food, she makes no effort to reach it… if I move it right to her lips, and she wants it, she will just barely crack open her mouth. Otherwise she acts like it’s not there.
So we are just sitting together. And laying together. A lot.
Please keep her in your prayers, y’all.
And if you have any experience or insight, please do share. I could really use it right now.
