Oh sweet girl how you steal our hearts!

Sotos Syndrome plus a handful of un-related but worrisome diagnosis'. As if Sotos wasn't enough.These things make life hard for a little girl who is very brave! A little girl who was tossed from relative to relative until age 4 and then dumped at age 5 by a family who promised to adopt her.

Yes I say dumped because they nearly destroyed our chances of adopting her. They gave us little to 0 support during her transition. And the last time she was ordered by our State to go back before her next 30 day "visit" here. (a rule for the Adoption Inter-State compact)That family said she could not come back. Not even for one night.
And that woman counsels and approves adoptive homes in her state.

I am so proud of her. She has worked so hard to be the best sweet girl that she can be. We were told she hurt other children. So not true, she wouldn't hurt a fly. Yes she bit us, hurt us from time to time but it was out of opportunity not to be mean. Much like a toddler since Sotos delays maturity.

This Spring she started following her sisters around and copying them. She's beginning to mature more. It's so adorable!

One of the supplements that has helped Mercy is called- N-Acetyl-L- Cysteine. It is a cutting edge help for a variety of mental health issues.

She wears the wrestling ear protectors now because she likes them. (ugh!) She works hard not to hurt herself.

God has gifted us with so much. So much JOY and LOVE! Who are we as lowly sinners to deserve the goodness. Goodness that makes our hearts overflow! We PRAISE You Heavenly Father!

  3. She's so adorable! I looked up Soto's Syndrome. I had never heard of it before... that's neat you found a supplement that helps. She looks cute with her ear protectors. Maybe she likes the quiet from all the boys. ; )

    1. Thank You Hadassah! (((HUG))) Actually she is the loud one! LOL! The boys are very quiet, except occasionally Julius likes to make an odd sound when no one's watching! :o) But yes, some kids with Sotos have autistic characteristics and don't like loud noises. We tried ear headphone thingies years back to block it out- she hated that!
