Joey + Rory‘s young daughter Indiana has been a beacon of light during the past few months. As Joey Feek spends time with her family while in hospice care, little Indy’s playful spirit and sweet smile has helped to keep them in good spirits.
On Feb. 5, Rory Feek shared a collage of photos that show just how charismatic their adorable toddler really is.
The joy that Indiana’s sweet personality brings her parents has never been more needed. Late last year, Joey Feek ceased treatment for cervical cancer after doctors explained there was nothing more they could do. She has since been in home hospice care at her family’s home in Indiana, where many friends and family members have visited to give the Feeks their well-wishes.
Still, Rory Feek’s most recent posts on his blog, This Life I Live, have alluded that Joey’s condition has been worsening over the past few weeks. A recent post described Rory’s difficulty dealing with Joey’s recommendations for planting their farm’s spring crop – a task that she may not live to see.
“It’s hard for me to believe that there will be life after this cold, hard winter…and I think Joey knows that,” Rory wrote. “Getting us ready for something that we can’t see right now for the tears in our eyes… something she might not even get to see at all. Spring.”
As difficult as the situation is, little Indiana is making sure that her parents get through each day with a smile on their faces.
