Miss Mercy

Mi vida loca. I’m not gonna lie, I had some overwhelming moments today. Taking in a person that you don’t know and can’t tell you anything is rough. What do you like to eat? How do you like to eat it? Do you like milk? Do you like milk in a bottle? In a sippy cup? With a straw? In a cup? At night do I rock you? Do I just lay you down? Do I wait until you fall asleep? Do you still like to sleep with special blanket? Have you ever eaten a quesadilla? Are you allergic to peanuts? What’s your favorite song? Who are you missing from home? What was life like for you? Why are you so scared of brushing your teeth? Did something happen or have you just never brushed? What’s your favorite TV show? How you like to get your hair done? What time do you take a nap? Do you take naps? Do you have a nickname? When is your actual birthday? Do you like carrots? Nope, wait yes if they are sliced. Broccoli? No, but lettuce yes…

So many questions but we are just figuring it out a little at a time. I mean we’ve only know each other for 5 days.  I had a quick cry break. Sometimes I wonder what we are doing, then I look at Miss Mercy with her contagious smile and cackle laugh. That reminds me why. She is doing better here everyday and loves everyone. I said “I you” tonight for the 2nd time at bedtime. She blew kisses (after many rehearsals) at Elliott tonight.  Lots of learning, waiting, praying and powerless to any answers of our future together. Watching the sunset and my monkeys outside till dad got home gave me a little refreshment and perspective on how blessed I am. The Lord has shown this little one mercy by taking her out of a harmful situation and has shown us mercy by blessing us with her. She has s sweet spirit and playful personality. 

Thanks for all the prayers, gifts, hand me downs, and encouragement. I need it all 💕 These moments of reflection were brought to you by my amazing husband who is doing the dishes after working all day to provide for us.
