The courage and feisty determination that she displayed during heart surgery made an enormous impact all over the world. Elizabeth had a Facebook page with over 10,000 followers, and her journey helped others to see the beauty in choosing life for babies diagnosed with a trisomy condition. Elizabeth Joy is survived by her parents, Travis and Kelly Adams, 5 siblings, Matthew, Emma, Jonathan, William and Adeline Grace, maternal grandparents, Bob and Cathy Sacks, paternal grandmother, Michael Ann Adams, many aunts, uncles, cousins and her faithful kitty cat, Jack.
