Adopted Mercy Baby Graduates From High School!

I recently received these beautiful graduation pictures of Merri, one of our adopted Mercy babies. When Merri’s birthmother came to Mercy 18 years ago with an unplanned pregnancy, she made the courageous decision to place her daughter for adoption. Merri has grown up with a wonderful family in the Nashville area and has continued to stay close with me and with Mercy. She has even spent summers volunteering at our corporate offices! Merri is graduating from high school this year and recently received the Emmy and Eric Scholarship from Christ Church (Merri’s home church in Nashville). This scholarship is awarded to distinguished students who demonstrate a “love of service to the Lord and a love of scholarship and learning.” Merri is planning to attend Trevecca University in the Fall and plans to major in Dramatic Arts with a minor in Child Psychology. I just wanted to give Merri a big shout out saying congratulations! I am so proud of you!!

Have a great weekend!
