Mariah has been asking to go camping since mmm last september. So yesterday morning Mariah woke up saying "Daddy get up, lets eat breakfast and go camping! come on daddy we have to get ready." She really knows how to melt her daddy's heart, so he told her that they were gonna go camping. She got her back pack and in it were some clothes and a flashlight you have to have a flashlight when you are camping. Some how she got her blankie to fit through the straps on the back pack and she was ready to go. Travis hooked up the power to the trailer and the ate spagettios for dinner and ice cream and smores for desert. She was so excited she was singing a camping song all. Then night came she grab her pillow and blanket and off they went. they didn't last all night actually at 9:30 Mariah said that it was time for breakfast!
Donate to Reece's Rainbow and give a child with Down syndrome a forever family. In Eastern Europe when a child is born with Down syndrome they are told that there isn't any place for them in society and that they are better off in the orphanage. Even if the family decides to keep their child most end up taking them to an orphanage because of lack of support. and resources. Reece's Rainbow is ran by a mom who has a child with Down syndrome she has dedicated her life to helping these children. I have been following Reece's Rainbow since 2006. And every time I look at those little faces my heart breaks for them. I see my daughter who also has Down syndrome and I can't imagine what her life would have been like if she was born in a different country. My hope is that someday I will be able to be a mom to one of these little angels but, until that time I will do what ever I can to help these children find families. The sadest part of this story is that if these children are not adopted by the time they are 4, 5 sometimes 6 they are transferred to institutions where many can no longer be adopted. The conditions of these institutions are horrible and many of the children die within a year of being there. Click on the picture below and it will take you to the site where you can make a donation. Your donation will be saving a child's life. No amount is to small.
