Poppy is here.
And positively precious.
Much to share. Many pictures to upload.
But the connection is
excruciatingly a bit slow… and no one wants to sit around the room waiting for the pictures to upload.
It’s dinner time.
I did want to share at least one picture, though.
And let y’all know all went really, really well.
Poppy was so frightened, and tried to be such a brave little soul.
And she is positively precious, isn’t she?
Thanks so much for keeping us in your prayers.
More soon, I promise.
Congratulations…she is absolutely precious…love the picture!!! Can’t believe you are finally with her…yeah, yeah, yeah!
Blessings and Hugs, Ashley
