Newly listed UP syndrome children. : )

There is a new page on Reece's Rainbow for newly listed children. Which is a great idea! There are some children which are put on and within a day or two they have a new family! But not all children are found that quickly.  I am going to share a couple of them...
 This is Leo.

He has deafness of the one ear and deafness of the second ear 75%.
Such a gorgeous child! He is healthy in all other respects.
He was born in May of 2011.

There is no more info to share, but look really closely into his eyes. Can you see love that needs to be shared? Can you see wonder in his eyes? A wonder why was he abandoned? Can you see sadness?
I can! I can see all of those things.

Jewel. What a jewel of a name! She has a sister who CAN be adopted with her! They don't have a picture of her yet. Her name is Jessica.

Jewel (pictured), born December 2009
                                                    Jessica, born June 2004
                                                      Diagnosis: HIV

These sisters are available to be adopted together! We don’t have a picture of the older girl yet.
Jewel is adorable — love her little button nose and big brown eyes.

They both need to be adopted! They need to be adopted together!


This little girl is not newly listed.

I have a younger sister and she has a picture of Lilly. She is always praying for her and says she loves her! I think that is so sweet. My younger sister is almost the same age as Lilly. Does Lilly know that somebody loves her? Does Lilly know that somebody prays for her?

This is Lilly's info from RR.
Birth Date: February 2007
Gender: Female
Eyes: Gray
Hair: blond
Character: calm

This little one has been waiting SO long. This gorgeous little blondie has a significant heart defect and needs to see a cardiologist. She is doing ok for now, but definitely needs a family quickly! She also appears to have strabismus. She has the most beautiful eyes!

Update Fall 2011- She is not mobile, does not speak, but she takes food from the grated bottle (bottle with top of nipple cut off, so thicker liquids go through), and can understand some things. Despite her conditions she can still smile, but doesn't know how to play with toys and throws them.

Single moms and Canadian families welcome! Additional picture available!

$6750.50 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

Perfect........ in God's Eyes.

Why was I born into a loving family with everything I need? Why not Nana or Isabel or any other children? Just because I'm "perfect" that does not give me a reason to live a great life and watch the sad children die. Those children are perfect! Children with Down Syndrome are so cute, lovable and so much more! God made these children perfect in His eyes... and in mine.

"Now the God of peace … make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight …" (Hebrews 13:20–21)

If God made us all the same then would life be worth living?  Children with Down Syndrome are so special! I will NOT sit idle when children are crying out for help! I will NOT sit idle when there is something that I can do! I cannot sit idle when children, babies, toddlers, teens and adults are in need.

Please pray for these children. Please pray for Nana and Isabel.

Isabel, Nana and Sabrina.

Isabel is SO BEAUTIFUL!!! She is so happy, but she could be even happier! She needs a Mommy to pick her up when she falls and a Daddy to give her comfort when she scared.  She needs love and life.
She needs life!  Is She Your Daughter?

This is all of Isabel's info;
Girl, born April 2010
Hazel eyes
The nature of periods of sleep and wakefulness correspond to the age norm.
Feb 2011:
Calm and active. Not sitting, it is not necessary, turns in all directions. Shifts the toy from hand to hand. Interested in other children. Babbles.
A family adopted from the same orphanage in Dec 2011. They did not meet Isabel, but said it was a very nice place:  "The kids were VERY well cared for, all the ones that we saw looked healthy. This is an excellent facility and the kids seem happy and well-adjusted.”
Update from a family who met her, March 2012:
Isabel and Holly are together in the same group. She is small for her age, not walking yet, but the caregivers are working on helping her stand and she takes steps holding their hands. She is a very happy, sweet, gentle personality. She enjoyed our time interacting and responded well to being hugged and held in my arms. She is tiny for her age but looks healthy overall.

$1150.71 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
Please help Isabel find a home!

Nana is in the same orphanage as Isabel. I am praying they will both find a family!

Nana is now three years old. I love her so much! I pray for her night and day. I know sometime soon God will give her a loving home.
Date of Birth: January 2009

In response to the emotional appeal and tactile contact with an adult reacts to a smile, she does not go to the contact. Self is not sitting, turns from back to stomach. Toys she picks up a few hanging over her chest trying to capture, beating on them with her hands. Enclosed in the hand holding the toy did not last long with both hands, pulling at his mouth, licking tongue. Will listen to adult, finds the sound source. In the active voice observed actively Goulaine. Appetite is reduced, the food is selective, trying to keep their own hands a mug.
 $3604.90 is available towards the cost of my adoption!
Please help Nana find a home! Is She Your Daughter?

This is Sabrina. She has been newly listed. She is so cute!
Girl, born September 2007Diagnosis: HIV+ with signs of pneumonia, III clinical stage

What a lovely little girl! Isn’t it darling, how she’s holding out her dress for the picture? Her long hair is beautiful, and those bows are so cute — big bows often mean an orphanage favorite.

I was just looking at her grant... it is empty. This needs to change. Pray, share and donate!

Is She Your Daughter? Are any of these angels your Daughters?

A feeling.......

What are feelings? There are so many different feelings. Hurt, love, joy, disappointment and the list goes on and on.
But what are these sweet children feeling. Are they feeling any Joy? Are they feeling any love?
They are walking in the dark. They cannot see where their going, they cannot see past those walls.
They are sad. They are hurting. Their lives have been destroyed. Some have been chosen, some are still waiting. Most are still waiting! These are only a few that are still waiting....

This is Sweet Sally. : )
Sally was born in September of 2008. She has the sweetest blue eyes and rosy pink cheeks.

She was born with a heart defect and HIV. More Info on Reece's Rainbow.

Jolene is seven years old. She has brown hair and gray eyes. She is so cute!!!
She has a very healthy heart. She is almost too gorgeous!


Evelyn was born in Juliy of 2008.She will be turning four soon, she is facing an institution.
This is so sad, her face is Sooooooo adorable! I'm praying that she will find a Forever Family soon.

Debbie was born in 2008. There is no other info on birth. She has Dandy-Walker syndrome, Cerebral Palsy. There is more info on Reece's Rainbow.

Isabel was born in April of 2010. She has hazel eyes.
A family adopted from the same orphanage in Dec 2011. They did not meet Isabel, but said it was a very nice place: "The kids were VERY well cared for, all the ones that we saw looked healthy. This is an excellent facility and the kids seem happy and well-adjusted."

Penelope is two years old. She was born in October 2010. She has grey eyes. There is more info on Reece's Rainbow.

Josie was born in June 2010. She has the cutest fuzzy hair and hazel eyes.
She does not have down sydrome.
Beautiful little Josie was born prematurely to a mother without prenatal care. She suffered from lack of oxygen during birth. She had some paraylsis in half of her face, which is reported to be resolved. Her lungs were under-developed, so she may have some pulmonary issues — we're not sure to what extent. There is more info on Reece's Rainbow.

Yasmine was born on June 19, 2004.
  She has a glorious smile and a personality to match! Yasmine was born with CP. She has congeinital hydrocephaly as well. Her feet/ankles are turned in, but she is able to pull to a stand and tries so hard to get around! Surgery and therapy can make a world of difference for this darling little girl.
She is already 6 and facing the institution soon. She is blessed to still be at the baby house.
 God loves all His children, and I'm sure He loves these children so much!
Let's find a family for her FAST!!!
As Jesus said " Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for such is the kingdom of Heaven." Matthew 19:14
