God is all about reaching generations for His plan and purpose to be fulfilled. I thank God that Stephanie sent this to me, because she made my day. I also thank God that her birthmother, Carla, who chose life all those years ago – what a precious gift to the world! I could not resist showing off Carla and Stephanie, as well as Crystal. Thanks for sharing the joy! When God blesses you with something really cool, be sure to tell others about it because it is always encouraging…
My name is Stephanie. I saw a commercial for Mercy on CTN the other day, and I remembered that’s where my momma went in 1989 when she was pregnant with me. Her name was Carla back then, and she was 16 years old. She went to your Mercy house in Monroe, Louisiana. I just wanted to get on here and say “Thank You.” Thank you for everything your organization has done for her, and for me. See, if she would not have gone to you then I would have never known her. You guys gave her the option to keep me in her life, and I’ve spent all 19 years of my life with her. I could not imagine not having my mother. I also wanted to thank you, because without you she would have not raised me to know God, and His love. I want you to know that all the girls that need Mercy are always in my prayers, as are you and your staff. You guys will always have a place in my momma's heart, as well as mine. God bless you and everything you do.... as well as all the girls you help.
Stephanie pictured with her mom, Carla – don’t they look like sisters?!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. – I am in France speaking through an interpreter and this was the very first thing I got to read when I landed this morning – how cool is that!?!
