Before Mercy I struggled with depression, self-harm and an eating disorder. I was alone and isolated all the time.
I found out about Mercy because my mom’s friend works there. I decided to apply because I had given up on everything else. I was terrified when I entered the home.
A turning point for me while at Mercy was when I read The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel and I learned how to find God. God has given me freedom from anger, sadness, and self-hate.
After Mercy I plan to go to college. To all the donors, thank you for giving me the opportunity to find freedom and get on the path of righteousness.
