Abigail: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
In June LWB received a call about a baby girl who was just two weeks old, abandoned with a stubborn case of pneumonia and clear signs of a recent IV. We were able to move her to a hospital immediately, start up what we assume was a second course of antibiotics, and a few weeks later welcome her to LWB’s Heartbridge Healing Home.
This sweet little peanut gained a pound and a half during her first month at Heartbridge, and she is obviously feeling much better. Abigail is making eye contact, and showing an interest in her surroundings, and she has just offered up her very first tiny smiles for the nannies. She needs to grow much stronger before she can transition to foster care, but she appears to be on the right path.
We feel so sad for Abigail’s birthparents who most likely could not afford to continue her hospital care. In their place, we have nannies, medical staff, and sponsors who are working together to help this precious child find healing and happiness.
If you would like to join Abigail on her journey, we will share her story through monthly photos and updates on her progress. Sponsorships are $50 per month, or $25 per month for a shared sponsorship. Thank you!
