A mother of seven Texas children, who allegedly abandoned them in Nigeria, is looking to get them back Thursday. A San Antonio pastor found those children living in poor conditions, and thanks to him, they are back home in Houston.

There will be a custody hearing Thursday in Houston, where the children's adoptive mother could face charges.

She moved them to Nigeria last October. Pastor Warren Beemer from Cornerstone Church found the kids in July, at an orphanage there. The seven children, now aged 8 to 16, were suffering from malnutrition, malaria and typhoid.

Pastor Beemer contacted authorities after he discovered they were American, and that they wanted to come home to Houston.

"I can see them laying at night saying, 'God will you please bring us home?' And God put that plan together," says Pastor Beemer.

The kids have been in the care of Child Protective Services since they arrived in the United States last week.

Besides determination of custody today, the children's adoptive mother could face a fraud charge.

She was receiving money for each child per month, but when that stopped, she allegedly took off. She claimed she had an emotional break-down.
