A year ago today at 11:22am, I received the best text message of my life.
“Meet baby Rocco!” Attached a picture of a very fresh newborn baby boy.
A few hours later he would be in my arms.
Fast-forward 10 months to Tuesday, July 30 – our adoption day. Rocco legally becomes our son. Forever ours. A 6-year journey and dream realized. Best day ever.
Our dream came true because of Mercy Ministries. Mercy Ministries exists to provide opportunities for young women to experience God’s unconditional love, forgiveness, and life-transforming power. It is at Mercy Ministries that Rocco’s birth mother received extraordinary care, love and support. It is at Mercy she found hope, healing, and chose us to be the parents of her unborn son.
Words cannot express how grateful we are for Mercy Ministries. Because of Mercy we have Rocco. Because of Mercy we have a beautiful open adoption with a young woman who has found freedom in Christ. Because of Mercy our lives are forever changed.
We want to give back to the ministry that made our dream come true. This weekend, please help us celebrate Rocco’s 1st birthday and adoption, by donating to Mercy Ministries on Rocco’s behalf. Our goal is to give Mercy $1000 on Rocco’s 1st birthday. (That is only 100 of our friends and family giving $10 each).

Thank you for your support!
