The primary goals of Reece's Rainbow is:
To raise awareness regarding the plight of children with Down syndrome in foreign orphanages and their availability to be adopted
To raise adoption grant donations for each of our waiting children
To seek new adoptive families for orphans with Down syndrome internationally
To provide adoptive families with additional fundraising opportunities.
To fund humanitarian aid opportunities and improve the quality of life of our children waiting to be adopted
To fund educational and therapeutic opportunities for orphaned children with Down syndrome living in foreign orphanages
To fund and facilitate the development of new Down syndrome birth parent support groups in foreign countries, thereby decreasing the number of children placed in orphanages
To enact social change abroad about children with Down syndrome and other special needs through the testimony of adoption
I know all of our pocketbooks are stretched thin these days, and my hope of hope at one point in my life journey, was to adopt another child with T21, but as I have aged. my dreams of adopting in our family fades a bit....BUT the one thing I can do, is give little bits to a waiting child's fund, so that when their forever family comes along, the cost of adoption is offset by Reece's Rainbows sponsorship fund.
Think about sponsoring a child that is waiting for a forever home this holiday season and get a beautiful ornament to hang on your tree to remind you of the gift of life!

Newbold Family Adoption
as it is one of the sweetest tributes to Down syndrome and the power of love, faith and prayer. A precious angel named Chloe graced the Newbold's life, only to be taken from them so quickly.....but Chloe gave a great gift in her short life, a love and understanding to her parents who loved her so dearly, to adopt two orphans, John Paul and Dasha. I promise you, you will leave this blog with a heart that has swollen in size from reading about the gift of Down syndrome in a families life.
