Poppy Ronan Thompson

Baby Poppy was born April 8th at 5:35 am weighing 6lbs 11ounces. She is perfect and we are all so in love.

I know you all have been worrying, wondering, and waiting for an update. I promise to do so soon, but between breast feeding and not wanting to put her down, I have not had a free hand to type. We as a family are just taking some quiet time to soak this all in and of course are missing our Ronan, so very much.

Thank you for all your sweet comments, love, and thoughts. I promise to write when I get a little more time.

xoxo

    Oh Maya I am so happy for you. You don’t know me and I have never written on here before but I have been following your story for a long time now and I tell just about anyone who will listen (including my mother who just jumped when I gasped after seeing your post). Your story has effectively changed my life. I am in nursing school right now and you and your family and this blog are the reason my goal is to work in pediatric oncology, because I want to make what little difference I can.

    Anyway my point was to congratulate you. Poppy is beautiful and I know she comes with a complex set of varying emotions but I’m so happy for you and I wish you as much happiness and joy as possible with the addition that it’s also perfectly okay to be as sad as you want. Best of luck with the upcoming sleepless nights and keep telling your story you never know who else’s life it will change!

  70. So adorable! Love her bright eyes and the hint of a little smile. What an adorable gift! I was wondering if you had little Poppy yet and hoped everything went smoothly as you don’t need any other troubles in your lives. But she is awesome! Just a question I’m sure we all are wondering… Does she look anything like the boys as babies or you or Woody? I always love seeing babie photos to see the hints of features that look alike…
    Enjoy soaking up all the love around you. I wish you had Ronan there holding her with you. But having a newborn in the house is so sweet and precious… I miss having a newborn in the house… Thanks so much for sharing her photo! We wish you all the best days ahead!!!

I got this update in my email and thought it was appropriate since I was wearing my Rockstar Ronan skull t-shirt!! I hope you are all well and soaking up every moment of this new girl that will bring so many smiles to you!! Enjoy as much time as you want to take in this new ones personality (which we know is extra spicy), feel her love and have her learn about her brothers :) we are all so happy for you Thompson Family!!! I’m sure she already is feeling the Ro-love and knows how amazing he is and how special she is. Congratulations Maya!!!

Though she will never get to meet Ronan he is part of her name and forever in her life. Wishing you all a lovely time getting to know baby Poppy

I know it must be a time of great joy tinged with the eternal sadness of Ronan not being with you in person. That’s just not right. I send you all the biggest hugs and much love. Special snuggles to that little beauty and a twinkly wink to Ronan always. xx

Last night I saw the update abut baby Poppy on Taylor Swift website and danced with joy.Little Poppy is beautiful and perky and I am sure little Ro and Quinn and Liam must be over the moon to have their baby sister!

    She is the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen. Ronan must be so proud of all of you, and I know he’ll be the best big brother a girl can ask for. When I saw that she was born on April 8, I started crying, because that’s my best friend’s birthday, and she totally knew that Poppy would be born then. I know that Poppy won’t make the pain of losing Ro go away, but I hope that she helps all of you feel a little better. Poppy is perfect<3

Congratulations to you and I hope she’ll brighten your life and bring you happiness. I already know she’ll be an amazing girl who will inspire so many of us just like Ronan. Lots of love to you all! ♥

Your Mama is one amazing lady-ask the mafia she has here. Your daddy is beyond special as well as your big brothers. And although we are all so, so sad that Ronan is not here, we know you can feel him. <3
    Welcome little Poppy.
    Hey L&Q, you guys are the best brothers EVER! The love you have for your baby sister is seeping through your pores in those pictures!!

  257. I’ve looked at the pictures again and again with so much joy. Life is so bittersweet…I know Poppy doesn’t make it all better but she sure is cute!
    I had my 2nd son after my husband was in an awful accident…and I just couldn’t wrap my head around the whole thing…life had become hard and I wasn’t sure I could handle a baby in my new world…until I met my son officially on his birth day. That day changed me…and I realized that the pain and suffering aren’t fair but the good times are cherished in a whole new way. I’m sure that makes sense to you too. I live more day by day than I ever used to…and though I miss who I was before…sometimes things seem simpler.
    Anyway — I couldn’t be any happier for all of you. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I know I don’t know you but somehow I feel like I know all of you…and as I knew you were in labor I just wanted so much to know how you all were…thanks for sharing all with us.
    Hope things are going smoothly with everything…she’s so perfect.

No doubt you’re on an emotional roller coaster, but I hope you and your precious family will be able to enjoy this wonderful ‘babymoon’ for as long as you want to. The rest of us can certainly be put on the back burner and wait for further updates until you’re good and ready to share……but more pictures would be nice ;)

  291. Welcome Poppy!! I imagine Ro is so proud of himself for gathering SO many people together to anticipate his baby sister’s arrival! He has probably been laughing and laughing at how many times his page has been “refreshed” on thousands of computers, these last few days. That stinker. I don’t even care, it was worth it. You, Baby Girl, are just perfection. Those eyes, THAT HAIR, that tiny face!! Wowzers! So sweet to see your big brothers oh-so-smitten!!! You are so RO-loved!!

You and your family have been such an inspiration to me and I am so in awe of how you have dealt with the most shitty situation any family could be given. You are an amazing woman of such grace and beauty and you deserve all the good things life can give. I know this must be such a bittersweet time in your lives, a beautiful new life, amidst the grief that you have to face every day. I know that your precious Poppy will never replace your beloved Ronan, but I pray that she brings the joy back into your lives that you so deserve.

It's almost September! Childhood Cancer Awareness Month- this is my I think 4th year working with my absolutely amazing girlfriend @mamamaya to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer, which brutally stole her son Ronan.  I was introduced to Maya when my close girlfriend Sandra's daughter was also fighting for her life, alongside Ronan.  Mia beat her cancer but has severe radiation injury.  This horrible horrible thing brought us all together and we are determined to make a difference for all of our babies.  Keep an eye out over the next week or so.  It's time to Go Gold 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 "And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate...I shake it off, I shake it off." #pearl #gettingreadyfortimessquare #nycorbust #nycgoesgold #beboldgogold #rtf #shakeitoff @taylorswift @knjoy Do you guys want a bedtime story for tonight?
