I am writing this profile for my daughter. She is an amazing woman. She is beautiful inside and out! She is a great person and a wonderful mother. She comes from a great family and we are supporting her every step of the way. It is such shame that this happened. It could have happened to anyone. Mercedes left a party after drinking most of the night. She made a terrible decision to drive while she was intoxicated. She left the party with her friend in the passenger seat. She ended up running off the side of the road and hit a phone pole wire. They both flew through the windshield. Mercedes survived but sadly, her friend did not. This is something she will have to live with the rest of her life. All we can do is look to the Lord for forgiveness and pray for His guidance in our lives.
She is trying to work hard to better herself in prison. She is taking classes and is getting enrolled in college courses. She is making good grades and excelling at each one! She asked me to make this profile for her. It gets lonely in prison and it is wonderful to get letters from others. We try to send what we can but it is very difficult with this economy! Prayers are always needed!
Thank you for reading this profile and Mercedes appreciates any support that could be offered in this terrible time!
