Angel Update

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a child from Reece’s Rainbow. Here’s a boy who is newly listed. His name is Simon and he only has until October 2013 to be adopted. After that he will be too old and will have missed his chance to find a family. He has spinal muscular atrophy and some developmental delays, but is very bright! Read more about him and please keep him in your prayers!

Bringing Ava Home

Standard

I have another Reece’s Rainbow story to share! In 2010 a family brought home a little girl from Ukraine. They later learned about Ava, who had been their daughter’s roommate, cribmate actually.  They showed their little girl a picture of Ava and she recognized her. Now, they are determined to bring little Ava home so that these two young girls, who had grown so close, can be reunited and grow up as sisters. But they need help, all the help they can get. It hasn’t even been two years since their last adoption, so funding is tight for them. Please read about their story, share it with others around you, donate if you can, and above all send them your prayers! Peace and blessings!

New Angel

Standard

I have found another angel that stole my heart. There’s not much info about this angel named Nico, but it was love at first sight. He has Down syndrome and is 2 years old. Please share him with people you know in whatever way you can. Let’s help him find a home!

Look at that fiery red hair!

Angel Update

I was checking in at Reece’s Rainbow to see how Laurel was doing and I discovered that a family has decided to adopt her! I am so excited for her as she only had a few months left being eligible for adoption. I had been praying for her a lot and after reading the family’s story I found out that I wasn’t the only one writing about and praying for her. God is so good! Now I’ll have to pick another child to focus on. I’ll let you know as soon someone steals my heart!

Peace and blessings!

Another Angel

Standard

Now that Malcolm has a committed family, I’m going to start advocating for another wonderful person who needs a family, and fast.

Her name is Laurel. She turns 16 in August. At that point she will no longer be able to be adopted. This means she will have to spend her future in an adult mental institution. Thus far she has been lucky enough to live in an orphanage for older children, one that humanitarian groups have been involved with. But she needs a family before August so that her future is not taken from her. She is a smart and friendly child who just wants to have a real home. Please share her story and help her find  a place to be loved by 2 parents.

Peace and blessings!

They stole my heart

Standard

After posting about Malcolm earlier, I started to explore the Reece’s Rainbow site and my heart has been stolen by all of these beautiful children. The nurse in me wants to help all of them get healthy and it breaks my heart that they don’t have the loving families that can be so therapeutic for children with special needs. I want to adopt them all right now. But this little guy has especially stolen my heart; Neville. He is just so adorable.

Malcom Monday

Standard

Instead of music Monday, today will be about Malcom. He’s an adorable little boy with special needs who lives in an orphanage but will soon be transferred to an adult mental institution when he turns 5 in April. If you have the means, please donate to his fund. This can be used toward the cost of his adoption. Currently he is at $7,204, thanks to advocacy from Leila over at Little Catholic Bubble, but he needs more. Any amount will help raise his fund and if you can’t donate, please share his story with your friends. And take a look at some of the other children at Reece’s Rainbow. They all need help from us.

And check out this video of Malcom. How adorable is he?

UPDATE: I just found out that a wonderful family really wants to adopt this little guy, but they will need all the help they can get. Their blog has a breakdown of the funds they need, which come to an estimated total of just over $45,000! Please check out their blog (following the link in the above sentence) and the ways you can help them.

*He’s up to 8, 458.36! Please, please, please keep donating! Let’s bring Malcom home!

 

** Malcolm has a family officially committed to him! Praise the Lord! Thanks to any support you all may have offered him!
