Gabbi is the middle triplet of Georgina and Gifty. Patrick discovered the girls while on a religious trip for two weeks in the village of Kablasuazo. He was visiting house to house and continued to see the two year old siblings wandering the streets of the village. The girls were dirty, had many rashes and were covered in ringworm.
Patrick would give the girls clothes and food. He found out that the mother would take their older siblings to the farm each morning, leaving the triplets to fend for themselves until late at night.
He went in search of Jacqueline, the mother, and she explained that their father, Francis, had left soon after the triplets were born. They had already been struggling to provide for the three children they already had and after the birth of the triplets, Francis was too overwhelmed and said he was going to look for better work, but never came back.
When Patrick described his mission and the care the girls would receive at the orphanage and the school, Jacqueline was extremely grateful and was happy for Patrick to take the girls and bless them with a better future.
She kept the three older children and Patrick financially supports them going to school.
A month after bringing the girls to the orphanage, Patrick took them back to Kablasuazo to meet the village chief, police, village members and their mother to hold a ceremony to officiate passing the triplets to Patrick forever. It was made known that Patrick is now their father and that the mother wanted Patrick to have them for the rest of their lives.
Patrick has paid for the mother to come visit the orphanage on occasion so that she can see that the girls are well looked after. She has visited twice. The girls are not sad when she leaves as the are happy to be living with Daddy.
Gabby also gets plenty of her favourite food here, fried rice and she loves to play with the two puppies every day. She loves colouring and will always pick pink as her crayon of choice. Most mornings you'll hear her running around singing her favourite song, 'Welcome, welcome, how do you do?'
