Six!

Happy Birthday sweet Mercy! Today you are six years old. I pray that someone is making you feel special on your big day. We thank God for your life and pray His blessings will be poured out on you.


I talked with Mercy on Monday afternoon by telephone. She seemed very sad which I have not experienced in previous conversations. She asked many times when I was coming for her. The person with the phone said she is expressing a lot of concern about wanting to come home. I have been told her adoption decree will be ready for pick up today and I pray it is true. This precious one (and all who are waiting) needs the love and security only a family can bring. Lord, let it be!

I'm sure the wait is long for those who understand that a family is waiting for them.

Happy Birthday Mercy!!!! Six is a good year (especially for you because you'll be coming HOME!)

Praying for you today, Mom. We serve a mighty God.

Happy Birthday Mercy! How difficult it must be for the children as they wait & try to understand why we aren't hopping on the first plane to get to them.

Six is such a great age & you will get to experience that with her.

Happy Belated to sweet Mercy. I love the pic with her little tummy peeking out :)

I'm so sorry to hear that she is sad and concerned about getting home. But it's a great sign for connecting and attaching . . .

Which I pray can happen SOON and IN PERSON. SOON.

Hugs to you all!

So glad this is her LAST birthday away from you! I know these final days SUCK BIGTIME, but the Lord will finish what He began. Next year all this pain will be a distant memory... I can't wait to see this dream come true. Please, Lord!
