"Mercia is a sensitive little girl and has tremendous needs for others. Mercia was abandoned by her mother, and to this day we don’t know where she is. We also have no information on the whereabouts of her father. Mercia's grandmother is the relative that comes by to visits her. Mercia has gone through many difficult situations - abuse, rejection, sickness, but she is doing very well now. She started elementary school in February, and seems to be liking it."
