Has Been Transferred


Those words...I am heart broken today :(

I just learned that two little ones that I love were transferred. That means that instead of spending their days at a "baby orphanage" where they have grown up, they will be sent either to an older child orphanage or a mental institution. Although the first scenario would be better it is known that children with special needs are given no education when transferred They will spend their day doing...nothing. Can you imagine what a boring existence that would be? Can you imagine these two gorgeous children in an institution?


 Do you have room in your heart for one of these smiling faces?
Please spread the word for these two!

We need more Angel Tree Warriors!

The Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree starts exactly one month from today and I am so excited to start shouting for Kaleigh! For the months of November and December I will focus all my fundraising efforts on this sweet little lady. There are still many, many children who need someone to fundraise for them for the Angel Tree. This explains what the Angel Tree is:

As an extension of our Prayer Warrior project, and an enhancement to our annual Christmas Angel Tree Project, we are seeking passionate folks to be one child’s Christmas Warrior this year.Our Christmas Angel Tree Project is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year. All of our orphans with Down syndrome from ages 0-5 are posted on one page for people to sponsor and donate for their adoption grants. It runs from November 1- December 31, 2012.

Those who give more than $35 receive a beautiful photo ornament of their sponsored child to hang on their Christmas tree. These ornaments make fabulous gifts for your friends, family, and fellow Down syndrome advocates, while providing a life-saving gift for the child who is in desperate need of a “forever family” of their own.

When you sign up to be a Christmas Warrior for your child, you are working towards the goal of raising $1000 or more for YOUR CHILD. There are lots of ways you can do this, and the power of the internet makes saving a life even easier than you might think. Even if you don’t have a cent of your own to donate, your willingness to reach out to other people is all that matters!

 I know raising $1000 seems like a daunting task but trust me, it CAN be done! Here are just some of the beautiful children still waiting to be chosen. They need someone to fight for them this Holiday season!
