Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.
Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.

So I wanted to write a little bit more about Miss Abbi Grace! Abbi is in an orphanage in Shanghai China. Unfortunately for us Shanghai does not give many updates about their children so I may not get too much more information like I did with Nina. Fortunately though, I was able to connect with a facebook page with other moms who are going or who have gone to Shanghai to get their kiddos, so they may be able to meet Abbi and hug her for me! She is 3 and will be 4 in January.
She has severe hearing loss in her left ear and mild hearing loss in her right ear. She also has a hemangioma on her liver. Along with these other needs she has mild hemiplegia on her right side, but from her video seems to get a long just fine. Because of her hearing loss it says she is not speaking, but being in a family of girls, I am sure she will catch up pretty fast once she starts her therapies.
We can not WAIT to bring her home and make her a Noll! I have no doubt she will fit right in!
It is going to be a journey watching God move mountains to raise the funds but we know He is able and I can't wait to watch all of the people He uses to make it happen!
And only 5 more days to buy a shirt to bring her home!!!! Go here to buy it! It Is Here!
Here is a little video for your Abbi viewing pleasure ;)
Thank you and God bless!!!!!
