boroughs-madeline2015Reece’s Rainbow is dedicated to serving orphans abroad with Down syndrome. The ugly truth of the matter is that once these children reach a certain age, especially growing up in institutional/orphanage settings, they get to a point where they are no longer likely to be adopted.

Esther

EstherGirl, born January 2009
PRC
Down syndrome, Post-op CHD

Esther is an outgoing little girl who filled the room with her own high-energy sunshine when our staff saw her on a trip. Everything she saw delighted her- the giant rolling balls, brightly colored pipe cleaners, blocks to stack. She has Down syndrome, and seems to have good motor skills; she can run and jump, but her verbal skills are currently limited to “mama,” “baba,” and some expressive syllables. However she will also use gestures to express herself, and understand directions from her nannies.

This curious little girl likes playing on the playground and enjoys all sorts of toys. Her nanny told our staff she’s very good at imitating what others around her are doing. When they sit down to rest, she will pat their backs, and if other children are crying, she will comfort them with a cuddle. Her self-care skills are good, she can feed and dress herself. She has had surgery for a heart condition, and the doctor with our staff didn’t hear any murmurs.

There is a $4000 Child Grant that may be available to families through the agency.

When there is her familiar song I Love You, she can imitate clapping hands and wiggling her body simple with music, and can dance with children together.Olivia2
Now she can’t use words to express her needs, but she can understand what the aunt and the teacher say to her; such as when it’ s time to eat. the aunt will tell the children, “ let’s have a meal.” Then she would move her chair to the table for the meal. When she is told to go potty, she can go to the bedpan and take off her trousers and sit on it. Now she can make some simple words, such as yi and ya. She is careful to study, and is confident; in the activity of stringing beads, coloring, playing the cap of a bottle she is

very interested in them and focuses on them. She can imitate pointing to facial features. She is kind and helps other children; when she falls down in walking, teachers and children would help her and encourage her. Now she knows to care about children. She is restless and brave.

Dorri

Dorri3Girl, born 2008
PRC
Down syndrome

Listed: August 16, 2016

Dorri came to meet us accompanied by her foster father.  It was obvious that he adored Dorri and he told us that she is very smart.  He said “We cannot make her life better but we have hope for her to have a better future.”  Dorri is fostered by a mom and dad.  There is another child in the home who is 3 years old.  Dorri plays well with the other child.  When asked if she liked animals she told us that she loves dogs and that she has a very big dog at her house.  Her foster father started laughing and told us it was a big toy dog!  She is described as a very gentle child who loves people and connects well with adults and peers.  She does a lot of things at home, cleaning the floor or her parents shoes, just to be helpful.  She was observed throwing away her sucker paper and stick and then wiping her own face, without being told.  Reportedly she is able to do good self-care.

Her foster father said they have to control the amount of food she eats stating that she seems to keep eating and doesn’t know when to stop.  When we asked her if she had a favorite food, she told us her favorite was suckers…after we had just given her one.  She speaks very clearly, was very affectionate and was also giving kisses to the orphanage worker.  Dancing and singing makes her happy.  Her foster father said she rarely throws a tantrum but when she does they ignore her and she quits.  She is currently attending Kindergarten at a private special education school.  There are 20 students in her class.  She is able to read some very simple words and understands what the teacher tells her.  She seems very intelligent.  When asked her favorite subject, she told us “hula hoop” which we assume is her favorite thing to play with in Kindergarten!  Dorri has Down syndrome and an Atrial Septal Defect which has not been repaired.  She likes to play outside and ride her scooter and tricycle.  Her favorite color is red and she enjoys playing with stuffed animals.

Carol

Carol update 8 2013carol-updateGirl, born Sept 2010
PRC
Down syndrome

Carol  loves sitting and rocking on her hobby horse!  She is enjoys listening to music and rocking on her horse.  She can sit on the bed steadily and can stand with hands holding onto the bed rails.  Sometimes when she sees other children take her favorite toy she will try and take it back.

Update from Sept 2016: In May 2014, Carol went into the care of a foster family and has been living with them ever since. She is currently in kindergarten and has made big progress! Carol is happy, active, talkative, and cute. She can say many daily words. Some words are clear and some are not, but they are all understandable. Sometimes she will sing songs or count from 1 to 10 for her foster grandparents on the way home. After she goes home from school, she will change her shoes and put her school shoes in the cabinet. She will then tell her foster grandma what she wants to eat. She enjoys greeting her neighbors by saying “hello.” If she sees something she does not understand, she will ask her foster grandma, “Grandma, what is this?” When she wants to go out to play, she will tell her foster grandparents “go to play.” If you call her name, she will reply “I am…” or “Ah, what do you want?” If you ask her what her name is, she will tell you her full Chinese name. If you ask her some simple questions, she will reply. Carol’s motor skills are good. She can hold a pen to draw and can write “1.” After drawing, she will put away the pencils in the drawer.

Carol eats with a spoon and is very clean when eating. After eating, she will try to wash her dish. Carol is potty trained, but needs an adult to help her wipe. She loves music and specially loves singing and dancing when she hears music she likes. She has good social skills and is very attached to her foster grandparents. She gets along well with her foster sisters as well. Each night, she will ask her older foster sister to sleep with her. In the past, she would grab her foster sister’s pillow and play or tease her, but she doesn’t do that anymore. Carol’s foster grandma is more serious and her foster grandpa spoils her, so she prefers the foster grandpa and knows to ask him when she has requests. When guests come over, she will show her drawings to the guests. She does not like to eat vegetables, but does like to eat chicken legs and wings and is very clean when eating them. She also enjoys watermelon and bananas, but does not like sour fruit. Carol enjoys playing with her dolls, watching cartoons, and going outside with her foster grandparents. Carol has down syndrome, but is clearly quite high functioning. She couldn’t be doing better, but it’s definitely time she found a forever family of her own!
