    I just watched the video posted on FB and my heart just aches so much right now. I want to come hold the babies so badly. You are such a strong woman and I admire you for that.

    Thanks for keeping it real with the photos, it makes the significance of your work and the realities there come alive. Kephania has stolen my heart more than any other, which is saying something.

    My blessings and prayers to you all. Please let me know if there is a special sponsorship for Kephania.

    Quote from my 5 year old son “She looks so sad”.

    Keep up the great work!

    There seems to be a fair number of children that have to be readmitted. Is it possible that the child’s family could be signed up for a sponsorship program such as the food box program when the children are discharged in an effort to prevent this. This would also help their siblings at home who also probably are not well fed. Each time a child is discharged, one of us could sponsor the family for a food box the same way people sponsor kids for school. I would love to participate if you guys decide to do this. Praying for you all.
