God has blessed our family with a PRECIOUS GIFT! My parents were able to officially and legally adopt Brian today! We just ask for your prayers as the Lord guides my parents in raising Brian and that He will give them understanding and wisdom through this new experience. We are all confident that the Lord led Brian to our family and have been blessed beyond comprehension since the day we met him! He just fits in PERFECTLY! He loves to hunt and fish and thinks the Bass Pro Shop is "THE BEST PLACE IN THE WHOLE WORLD!" I can remember a few months ago being in Target and Brian was riding in the buggy. My mom was pushing and we had just gotten through the main entrance when Brian looked up at my mom and said, "Momma, I'm really a Mercer now right?" At the time my parents didn't know if they would be able to adopt Brian because his parents still had legal rights to him at the time. But through their consistent FAITH in their Lord, my mom looked down at those precious, needy eyes and said simply, "Of course you are!" and smiled brightly at him! We are so happy to Welcome JOSHUA BRIAN MERCER into our lives but he's been a son and a brother for awhile now, actually since the very first day he arrived at 1167 Mineral Springs Road!!!

Yea for Miracles! Yea for Little Brothers!

Hey Laura! I'm so happy we're connected on here now. I miss you so much! I can't believe your parents adopted a boy! That's so wonderful! How old is he? Thanks for the prayer for my MeMa. We need it. It's been a very hard and trying time. My friend LeeAnn lives in Belton now so I'm close to Anderson quite a bit. We really should get together! Love you!
