Happily married, fulfilling career, and babies on her mind, Mercy was excited about her future. At 32 years old, life was unfolding exactly as she had envisioned. Then, overnight, her foundation collapsed as one by one she lost her husband, career and home. Her life as she knew it shattered; but then, over the next two and a half years, it was rebuilt in extraordinary ways. Through her short but amazing journey, she shares with us her story of great loss followed by three unexpected miracles. Mercy maintains an amusing attitude, reminding us that even in the most trying times, we can still experience joy. Her story is also one of faith, connecting to intuition and opening her heart and mind to a different life. Most importantly, she sheds light on a population of children that is being dismissed, neglected and mostly forgotten about: adolescent foster kids. She admits she wasn't aware of the reality of the foster care system until she was thrust into it. She shares the intimate details of the system, the process to become a foster parent and the remarkable gift of becoming a mother. Her story inspires us to stay positive, look to the future and open our hearts to our neighbors and communities.

About the Author

Mercy Giuliani lives in Denver and is a third-generation Colorado native. She attended Rocky Mountain College, a private art school in Denver for Interior Design. Mercy spent some time living in New York City, but her love of family and Colorado brought her back home. In her early thirties, a series of unforeseen, life-changing events altered her future. These events led her down an astonishing path to motherhood. Mercy hopes her story will provide hope for those going through hard times and inspire people to become parents in non-traditional ways.
