Exciting Update from one of our Adoptive Couples

Today, I was right in the middle of a leadership meeting when a FedEx package arrived. As I opened the package, I was so excited to see that one of our adoptive couples had sent me pictures and an updated report on the three children that they adopted from our adoption agency. I always love getting these pictures and updates – it is so exciting to see how much the children have grown and how happy they are!

I couldn’t think of a better way than to wrap up a week than to share some of the joy with you. I could go on and on about this family and how awesome they are, but I think these pictures say it all. I wanted to share them with you, so here we go…

The first picture is a set of twins named Caroline and Catherine that are now 11 years old. They don’t actually look like twins, but they are! They are very beautiful, but they both look quite different. They are shown in this picture hugging their new dog named Oreo.


When these twins were four years old, another one of our birthmother’s selected this same couple to adopt her son. Christopher is now seven years old, and he is shown here this past Christmas with his twin sisters and their new dog, Oreo.


I also wanted to share with you a picture of Christopher on his mountain bike. He is very handsome – it’s probably not too early to be praying over him because as the gecko says on his famous insurance commercials, Christopher is "easy on the eyes!”

I hope you guys have a great weekend. For those of you who are financial partners with Mercy, I want you to see three of the beautiful lives that have been saved from abortion because your giving gave a young girl a practical way to choose life. The Bible teaches us that every life is from God, and life is so precious. Thank you for your love and support!
