Birthday: March 8th 2002

From: Central Region

Abigail's mother first heard about Savior Children Foundation, through her sister.  Patrick had previously brought her sisters children to the orphange; Christiana, David and Rachael. It was then that Abigail's mother brought her and her brother Justice to the foundation explaining she could no longer care for the children.

When Abigail's brother Justice was born, the father left the mother for another woman.  The mother was unable to afford to care for Abigail and Justice properly. It was rumoured the father was in Tema.  Patrick took them there to search for him but they were unable to to trace him. 

The mother was working in a bar and said she had no one to look after them as even their grandmother had other children in her home and was too tired to look after Abigail and Justice. As a result, Patrick brought them here to give them the best opportunities possible. Their mother visits on occasion and during school breaks the children often return home to spend time with her. Although, Abigail is usually having so much fun with the other children she rarely wants to leave.

Abigail will usually be found singing or dancing and right in the spotlight. She is so bubbly, entertaining and full of energy that she easily gets along with all the children here, but especially likes to play with the youngest ones.

She knows all the dance moves to Pharell William's 'Happy' and can dance to it on repeat for hours.

When she grows up she wants to be a doctor.
