It has been 16 months since I laid eyes on Abraham for the first time. There has not been a single day go by that I haven't prayed for this sweet boy and his amazing mamma. I was seriously touched by his sweet face & from that very first moment I knew that God had placed me there at just the right moment to see him. It was a God Appointed meeting. I knew I could not sit back and do nothing. As we sat that day in her tiny little mud hut I told her that I wanted to help her. As a family we began to sponsor her and her family through Hope For Korah and we gradually began to see Abraham looking stronger & healthier:) Because we have 2 littles with Down Syndrome we knew that since Abraham had never seen a doctor in his 2.5 years it was crucial that he be seen. We finally were able to get him to a hospital where he could have a full medical workup. We knew that because of his Down Syndrome he might have medical issues that would need to be taken care of for him to continue to stay well & grow into a strong little boy. The results were no shock but yet I read the report and cried. Sweet little Abraham has 2 large holes in his heart that need to be closed! In Ethiopia not only do they rarely do heart surgery on pediatric patients, but they would not consider doing surgery on a child with Down Syndrome:( So we have worked over the past year to find a way to get his heart repaired and after many no's, we finally got a YES!!!!! Abraham will be traveling to Tenwek hospital in Kenya to see if the amazing surgeons can heal his broken heart. We have been completely in awe at how God has lined everything up so that Abraham could get strong enough to have surgery at an amazing hospital, with amazing surgeons, and we are beyond excited!!!! Our prayer is that we can raise the needed money by...hmmmm... let's see... the end of THIS week!!!! It is URGENT & Abraham needs to be in Kenya June 2nd to see the doctors. We are in a time crunch, but we know God has got this!!

He lifts the poor from the dust-- Yes, from a pile of ashes-- And treats them as princes sitting in the seats of honor. For all the earth is the Lord's And he has set the world in order. ~1 Sam 2:8
