Grace Notes: "Dear Mercy"

The moment I knew you were coming to be a part of our family, I knew what your name must be if you were a girl - Mercy. You are a gift of God's great mercy to me and to our family. God has shown great mercy to us throughout my pregnancy and delivery. You were breech until just a few days before you were born, and then God saw fit in His kindness and mercy to cause you to turn. Although labor was much longer than usual for me, the delivery was quick, uncomplicated and thrilling. Daddy and big sister, Anne, were nearby and Anne will always say with a note of awe in her voice, "I was the first person to see my little sister take her first breath." It was an exciting mornent for all of us - Joey and John came in just minutes later to hold and kiss you and welcome our newest angel to this covenant family.
