This is Abigail. She has failure to thrive

and some feeding issues.

We continue to be desperately in need of sponsors for our special need children in Liberia Africa. Posted is just one of the children we need help for.
I know that when we started this project in Liberia we had a whole different set of plans. We were going to open up a orphanage for special needs children. Caregivers would come in during the day and another set at night. It just seemed that no matter how we tried to get the doors open they would always close. I knew that God had formed this alliance of women who's hearts were with the homeless and hurting children in Liberia, why couldn't we get the doors open?

God was saying No I have another plan... a so much better plan. I want to place my children in foster homes with mothers who have no jobs, food or a way to care for themselves. I want to teach the people of Liberia to love handicapped children and that their disabilieies is not a curse, I love them as I love you. I want these children to be held and loved by the same person every day.... not to have to look at different faces.
Yes, it was Gods true desire to have Liberians fostering Liberian special needs children so they could see the life changing miracles that can happen when love is present. And oh if they could just see the Love of Jesus in these small precious eyes everyday.

Now can we see how much Jesus loves these precious ones? Are they worth saving to the American world?
For one hundred dollars a month one child can be saved. Can we give up starbucks, a lunch or two, a new outfit? So little for Americans. Oh Jesus let us see your heart for these little ones.

Luke 21:1-4 1 And he looked up, and saw the rich men that were casting their gifts into the treasury. 2 And he saw a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. 3 And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, This poor widow cast in more than they all: 4 for all these did of their superfluity cast in unto the gifts; but she of her want did cast in all the living that she had.
The Jews were instructed to give to the Temple and to the poor as part of their service to God. (So are we). One day Jesus sat at the Temple and watched people putting money into the offering boxes. Some people were rich and gave lots of money. Some gave money, but were unhappy about it. Then an poor woman, a widow, came up to the boxes.The poor woman put two of the smallest coins there were in the offering box. The disciples with Jesus weren't very impressed, but Jesus said this woman has given more than any other today. How could that be? Jesus said it was because it was all she had. How did the woman think she would buy dinner that night? She trusted in God to provide for her. She obeyed God's command, knowing that He would fulfill His promise to care for her in return. We must trust God the same way. Matt 6:33 says: "Seek first the kingdom of God and Hid righteousness and all these things (food, clothes, etc) will be added unto you."
