Did you know that our little girl was abandoned when she was about a month old because she has Down syndrome? There are countless orphans in orphanages around the world because they have Down syndrome or other special needs. In China, if a child is not adopted by the time they turn 14, they will age out and will not be able to have a family. Many will be institutionalized for the rest of their lives. It’s heartbreaking. Every child needs and deserves a family.

So many people are misinformed about Down syndrome. Individuals with Down syndrome are uniquely talented, gifted, and special just like everyone else. Meili Joy is more alike than different. She just has a little something extra. Extra Perseverance, Extra Joy, Extra Love.

Today we celebrate Meili Joy! She is a gift and a treasure. She is a wanted, chosen, and loved DAUGHTER. We are thankful she was given Life. She was given Hope. We want other orphans to have the same chance of Life, Hope, Love, and a forever FAMILY!

In honor of Meili Joy’s 4th birthday, we ask that you would consider giving a donation to Reece’s Rainbow instead of birthday gifts. Meili Joy has everything she needs…a FAMILY!

If you’d like to partner with us to spread adoption awareness and help raise funds for orphans to be united with their families, no amount is too small!

$215.00 has been donated in honor of Meili Joy`s birthday!
