I’m thinking maybe Joy doesn’t really think of her Instagram followers or other fans as strangers? I can’t know, of course, but she was raised as someone who has a constant audience. Many of these people have sent her positive messages and feedback over the years, including love and good wishes during her pregnancies. So maybe she felt it was right to “include” them at this time. I dunno, I could kind of see this.
I am so very sorry for her and Austin, and those of you here who have suffered similar losses. Completely heartbreaking.
