Big Sister Blows Kisses On Brain-Dead Baby And Gets A Miracle - Page 3



Praying For Poppy


Doctors were able to get Poppy breathing on her own again. But the little girl remained unresponsive. She didn't react to anything, even when doctors shone a light into her eyes.

"We held her, but she was just staring right through us," Stephen recalled. "I've never felt pain like that in my life. The heartache was unreal."


By now, it was Christmas. The family attended Christmas services, praying for a miracle. Amy, Stephen and Poppy's siblings -- sisters Elisha and Macey, and brother Alfie -- returned to the hospital to spend the holiday with their little girl.


And that's when their prayers were answered!



A Sister's Love


The family gathered around Poppy, doting over the little girl. Macey leaned over Poppy and the big sister blew kisses on her belly. Some people call it blowing raspberries.


Nothing got through to Poppy before. But suddenly, the playful act changed everything -- Poppy laughed!

"It was astonishing," Stephen said. "Then there were little twitches on her arms and legs. Doctors said it could be spinal reflexes, but I felt like it was so much more."

It certainly was much more. It was a miracle!
