Girl smiling, dancing with balloons from Mercy Ministries

Gently, barely breathing, she opened wide her eyes

Hardly daring to hope for such a big surprise

Excited, she unwrapped the gift of acceptance

Twirling, she began to dance on being given a second chance

Promising others never to despise
