    That little Marlene breaks my heart. 5 years old and 14 pounds! What is wrong with this picture?!! How sad. I pray she starts eating and will do okay. May God bless her and the others you have taken in this week. Wow, you have your hands full, but what a wonderful thing you are doing! May God bless you and all the ladies that care for these sweet kids!
