I'd like to post a "Thank you" for the awe-inspiring God-driven work that Ms. Abrams has done. My business partner had the distinct pleasure of meeting her today at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion. He mentioned that he had been photographed with her as well. He spoke very highly of her. I just had find out who she is, and reading the many highlights of her life journey has truly inspired me! I will share this story with my children and will educate my daughters in regards to the many achievements and sacrificial motivational deeds that she has done over the span of her life thus far.
