Our Little Family of Three

An update

My precious baby-niece is still with us. We are doing all we can to stay strong in our faith. We are surrounding her with love, cuddling, singing, kisses, reminiscing, and testimonies of eternal families. In fact, I've had the great opportunity to have been cuddling with her all morning. We've been laying on the bed, singing primary songs together. I've been playing with her little hands and her cute little feet. Children are such miracles. Children are such blessings.

Nic and Ash are staying strong...they are tired but won't leave their daughters side. Who can blame them? She's so beautiful. She's so strong. She's such a great example. She gets these great characteristics from her incredible parents. I look up to Nic and Ash so much. I hope they know that even though I have been and will continue to be crying next to them, I have a shoulder to cry on as well. I ache to be a part of this. I love the three of them too much not to be. This little family is just phenomenal.

I find it amazing Mercydez has the strength to influence people so strongly. I've had numerous people express deep love for our girl. We are so blessed to have her as ours. Oh, how I'll miss her! It nearly kills me.

Thank you for your prayers. Please keep praying.
Thank you for caring and loving Nic, Ash, & Mercydez so much, as well. She has been living off of love. She's had a beautiful life. And if it's Heavenly Fathers will we will do all we can to continue to offer her the best, most beautiful life possible. If not, we will honor, respect, and always remember her...my baby.

She is so beautiful.

Addy, Mercydez is so very lucky and blessed to have you for her Aunt. You are all on my mind--very much. My heart ACHES for you, it really does. I wish there was something I could do to take some of the pain away, to somehow make it easier on you. I know I am just one of SO many people who love you, who love her, who love Ashley and Nic.... You have all been phenomenal throughout Everything... In a small way, I feel like she is "my" baby, too. She's quite the girl! Regardless of what happens, know that I love you, I admire you tremendously, and I am "here" for you. Please give love and kisses to Mercy for me.
I love you,

Your past two posts have literally broken my heart. I can't imagine the heartache your family is feeling... I've been thinking about Ashley & Nic, and your family all day. Please know I care and am thinking of you all.
With love,

Thank you for posting. I'm sure Nic, Ashley and Mecry are grateful, as am I. What a blessing YOU are for them! You've kept contact many times with all of us who look forward to the updates about you all, and mostly Mecryedez. I've noticed how closely you've watched over them. You truly are a blessing. :)

I've been crying and praying and crying more, for you all..I cry because I don't want this for ANY of you. I cry because I know..all too well and have been remembering Naimah and our last days with her. I cry also because I know what lies ahead..the months and years to come..the roller coaster and waves of sorrow..and even the joy in it all. Yet, I know Heavenly Father knows what He's doing. He never messes up. Even though I've wanted to argue with Him about that one before, I never get through to Him.. ;) Do you know how much I want to just RUN to you and your families aid?! BADLY! I wish I could "bend the time space continuum" like Hiro, in a TV show, and be there right away. I am here though. I'll always be here. I also will be here 6 months from now when people get busy and on with life. I just wanted you to know that I care VERY MUCH. I also remember the tough decisions to be made in the next few weeks..and all the work that go into it. There may be others who are there to help Nic and Ashley with it, be so am I. LOVE YOU!

Thank you Adrienne. Thank you so much for taking time during this difficult time to think of others, giving us an update. I am sure it is even difficult to write. I can feel your broken heart in your update. It brings me to tears. I pause between every sentence, reading it over and over, trying to figure out what to say. What do you say to such a wonderful family that is going through more than most people experience in a lifetime? How do you express your deepest love and admiration without coming across like a bumbling idiot? You are so right, Mercydez is such a blessing. She has experienced so much life. And that is thanks to you guys. You have stuck right by her side every step of the way. I struggle to breathe when I think about your heartache. I really wish there was more I could do to help. All of us are praying our hearts out. Please love Mercydez for us. She has changed my life. I just love her so much....

Thanks for posting Addy, I wasn't aware Mercy was so sick til I read your blog. I know it seems like a sacred thing to post on a blog, but believe me when I say that all of us reading it completely understand how serious it is and we're grateful to be informed and once again touched by this adorable little soul. Our prayers are with you all, especially Ash and Nic.
