In her search for resources to help her overcome her many past struggles, Alexis discovered Mercy Home. Though making such a big step was scary for her, she decided to move in. At first everything was a struggle for her.
Nobody ever taught Alexis how to study, and it took many hours with her tutors to catch up in school. But that wasn’t even the hardest part. Still extremely shy, Alexis barely spoke to anyone the first several months she lived here. She figured none of the other girls would want to be her friend, anyway.
But then, slowly, Alexis began to adjust to life at Mercy Home. She began joining in with the others girls during activities and talking more at dinner. She began opening up to our staff about her past experiences. She began to truly understand what it means to be part of a loving family, after so many years of never experiencing anything like it.
I hope you know how much your partnership means to the children of Mercy Home! Your prayers ensure that all of all kids are able to heal from painful pasts while learning and growing every day. Kids like Alexis are able to embrace brighter futures because of all you do.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your dedication to our young people. We all feel truly blessed by your commitment as a faithful Partner in Prayer, and we are incredibly grateful.
