Video: They Were Told She’d Be in Their Care For a Few Weeks, But God Had Other Plans

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman April 19, 2015

Given only a day to prepare, and being told they would have her in their care for only for a few weeks before she’d be placed with a family member, this family was thrilled when they learned that Abbie would become their child for keeps. Even if it had been only days, they would have given her all the love and care they have, but the gift is being able to be loved back by this little princess for her whole life.

Before she turned a year old, she was found in her crib in a scary medical condition. They were given little hope at the hospital. But God intervened. Abbie made it. Through prayer and hard work, Abbie and her family thrived.
