Oh my goodness – how beautiful is this pic? It shows 92-year-old Jean Roper cuddling her gorgeous great-great grandchild Magnolia Jean ❤️❤️❤️
Prior to this precious moment, Jean was told she had just 3 weeks to live. She was being looked after by her pregnant great-granddaughter, Magnolia’s mum, right up until she gave birth at 36 weeks.
The image was captured by Magnolia’s auntie, Kayla Tracy, who shared it on Love What Matters, with the following words:
“My sister decided she would quit her job to take care of my great-grandmother. My sister was also pregnant at the time. She cared for our great-grandmother as long as she could before she went into labour at 36 weeks.
“My great-grandmother would tell her, ‘I just want to live long enough to see that baby girl.’ The day Magnolia Jean arrived, my great-grandmother was so excited! Especially since Magnolia is named after her, Jean Roper.
“From that day on, my great-grandmother completely flipped. She was getting up on her own, fixing her and my great-grandfather breakfast, even doing chores around the house.
“She couldn’t wait until my sister came by with her brand new baby. Of course I showed up to document this moment as well. Since then, my great-grandmother has been doing very well! It’s been nine weeks passed the date she was given!
“My grandparents have created a huge family. They have seven great-grandchildren, 11 great-great grandchildren and one on the way. We all have grown up so close.”
We should also add that Jean celebrated her 75th wedding anniversary with her husband – and Kayla caught their celebrations on camera, too.
What an amazing lady – and what stunning photos. Thank you for sharing, Kayla 🙏
