We had a really good Christmas. The older kids were with their dad so it was just the little ones. Cianna got a pink scooter and rides it everywhere. Mariah got a basket ball hoop but, won't let me play with her because I am a girl. she keeps telling me she needs a boy to play with her. Chandler got a gun and the big girls got makeup and clothes.
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.
