This will be a two part adoption:  Family must be prepared to adopt boy 1, then have to go back to adopt boy 2. this is because only boy 1 qualifies for expedited availability as both have not yet been listed on the registry for one year. Once adoption 1 is done, the family can file for adoption of the second child immediately as a bio sibling of their child.

Hudson

Boy, born Oct 2006
PRC
HIV+

Listed: September 2018

Several new pics available!!

Update 2019: Hudson is outgoing and actively interacting with people. He does not exclude communicating with strangers. He likes to play mobile games, with weak self-control.

He listens to other people’s opinions and is willing to express his own ideas. However, he is accustomed to using doubtful language in verbal communication with a tough tone, which may lead to conflicts with others. Occasionally, he loses self-control over his emotions.  At present, his habits have been improved and personal hygiene habits have been established and maintained.

Hudson graduated from an elementary school in June of 2019.  However, due to poor foundation, his actual learning ability is about at the third grade level. At present, his teachers have worked out a study plan for Hudson to help him complete basic learning and to master Pinyin and basic mathematical operations skillfully.

Sara

Girl, born 2004
HIV+, has appointments monthly at a government ART center. CD4 count is 750. Viral load is undetectable as of Feb 2018.  She started ARTs in Dec 2016. She looked very sickly when she arrived at SCH, as she hadn’t started ARTs yet, but now her face has filled out and she looks healthier.

Listed: Feb 2018

Sara has a smile that lights up any room she walks into. She has a quieter personality but enjoys joking and laughing with people she knows well. She has a best friend in her home whom she does everything with.

Sara makes friends easily, and enjoys playing games and lending a helping hand. She likes dancing, jumping on the trampoline, and singing.  Sara has a very kind heart and likes to show affection by hugging those she is close to. When she is upset she likes to cuddle up to a caregiver and hug them. Sara is so eager to learn. She loves to learn everything she can get her hands on and enjoys working on homework with caregivers. Sara speaks her native language fluently, and is learning spoken and written English and is doing well with it. She can read simple chapter books in English and is able to sound out most words she does not know. She knows multiplication facts and can add and subtract. She is an excellent student and the only thing holding her back is that she got a late start to school.

UPDATE NOV 2018:  Sara has the biggest smile. It lights up her whole face and turns her eyes to sparkly gems. She is kind and sensitive, girly and silly. She is often found whispering secrets in her foster sisters’ ears and giggling with delight. She adds joy and friendship to those around her.

Sara has many friendships with the other children in the house. She gets along very well with children both younger and older than herself. She is a good friend. She generously shares with those that she cares about. She values quality time with caregivers. She likes to verbally process and openly shares stories and daily events. Telugu is her first language and she is most comfortable praying and communicating in it but Sara can communicate well in English too; she’s able to express her emotions and functions well in daily conversation.

Sara loves dressing up in pretty frocks and jewelry. She also loves to dance and sing – especially when it is with her friends. She has a lot of joy as she embraces life. She is excited to try new experiences. Sara isn’t the life of the party but she loves to be part of the group. She doesn’t want to miss out on anything and is an active participant in all of our group activities.

Sara is developing well and progressing in her academics. Her English has been improving rapidly, her vocabulary is growing, as is her confidence. Due to a late school start she is behind in her academics. She is currently working hard at catching up and is being taught an American school curriculum. She enjoys math and science the most but she is working hard at all of the other subjects as well. Physical education has become one of the highlights of her day. She also enjoys jumping on the trampoline after school, crafts and special movie nights.

Sara constantly expresses her deep desire to a have a family of her own. She longs to belong and be loved by a family.

The dynamic duo – here come Rowan and Reisen. Their smile can light up a room and they are certain to win you over with their little boy charm. Both love cars and chocolate. Rowan has been hosted before last summer; Reisen just recently arrived at the orphanage. Both boys have some developmental delays, but are teacher’s favorites. Rowan has grown leaps and bounds since he was last hosted in the US, in every way possible.

Rowan: Loves cars, Happy & Playful, Speech delays; Reisen: Outoging lil bro, Artistic explorer, Friendly

From Dec 2016:
They appeared to be very hyper, having serious behavioral issues and mental delays. They changed families during hosting program because first hosting family couldn’t handle them.

Their sister can be adopted separately from them but adoptive family needs to have approval for three children in order for us to be able to separate them. She lives in a different orphanage from them.

Kristopher

Boy, Born May 2007

HIV+, FAS,  heart defect, vision issues (blind in one eye), moderate mental delay

Relisted: Feb 28, 2014

Kristopher finally available again!!  Kristopher is a handsome young man with blonde hair and brown eyes.   He is very active and is said to be always happy, but he is quite delayed.  Kristopher has significant vision issues, which may or may not be correctable.  He shows many facial and medical features of FAS.

***He can be adopted with Jessica and/or Emerson if a family is interested and approved in their home study ***

From a family who met him in early 2014:  Kristopher is such a sweet boy, and I think he would have so much potential in a loving home! He is very small for his age; he was 6, but looked like about 4 years old. He was definitely more mentally delayed than the other boys in his group, but he could answer questions appropriately, followed directions, could eat by himself and get dressed to go outside with little help. One time we played a game like ring-around-the-rosy, and he knew the words to the song and how to play along. He loved when my husband lifted him up high in the air. His eyesight is poor, and they said he is blind in one eye. He had trouble doing a puzzle, but we weren’t sure if it was a cognitive issue, or because he couldn’t see the pieces well. They told us he has some sort of heart condition, which might require surgery. We did see him showing rocking behavior at times. He got along well with the other kids, although he often played by himself, probably because of cognitive differences. He is so precious and really needs a family!

From a family who met him in October 2012:  Kristopher is a super-sweet boy who is 5 but looks 2 and is happy ALL the time.  He needs to live near a large medical facility, have heart surgery (unless it’s too late), and probably needs a small family that can commit to pretty full care for him. He is darling!

From a family who met him in spring 2014:   Kristopher is such a sweet boy, and I think he would have so much potential in a loving home!  He is very small for his age; he was 6, but looked like about 4 years old.  He was definitely more mentally delayed than the other boys in his group, but he could answer questions appropriately, followed directions, could eat by himself and get dressed to go outside with little help.  One time we played a game like ring-around-the-rosy, and he knew the words to the song and how to play along.  He loved when my husband lifted him up high in the air.  His eyesight is poor, and they said he is blind in one eye.  He had trouble doing a puzzle, but we weren’t sure if it was a cognitive issue, or because he couldn’t see the pieces well.  They told us he has some sort of heart condition, which might require surgery.  We did see him showing rocking behavior at times.  He got along well with the other kids, although he often played by himself, probably because of cognitive differences.  He is so precious and really needs a family!

Sally 26HA

 

Girl, born September 2008
Eyes: Blue
Hair: blond
Character: calm

Such a little sweetpea!

Little Sally has perinatal exposure to HIV; she was born slightly prematurely, at 35-36 weeks gestationally.

She was born with Down syndrome, and a heart defect; an open atrioventicular canal. Complete form of atria septal defect – 4 mm, membranous ventricular septal defect – 10 mm, circulatory insufficiency 0-1   We have no report of surgery at this time — so it would be imperitive to get her checked up by a cardiologist as soon as she comes home.

She also has some myopia (nearsightedness), so she’ll need to see an ophthamologist once she’s home, as well.

More photos available.

Sally’s grant of $3630.00 has been gifted to Veronika and Haven.

Valentina 14

Born December 2007
HIV+

She is described as being a calm girl. She does not have any siblings. Additional photos available. She is an interesting and positive girl. Sometimes she prefers to play by herself. She is happy to communicate and interact with her nannies.

From one of our adoptive families who visited with her in 2012:  “Valentina is very sweet. She seems to be somewhat delayed, and would very much benefit from a family and an opportunity for some individual attention. Right now she is too old to play with the babies and too young to fit in with the big girls.   In spite of this, she always seems happy and content.   She very much loved playing with us outdoors and seems very active. ”

Valentina’s grant of $358.50 has been gifted to Allicia.

MAX & LENA for the Darrow family–TX

  

Ukraine
Follow the Darrow family’s adoption journey on their blog at  iveyrock.wordpress.com

n (Ray)and Amber (Alex) have been married 7 years.  They are blessed with 3 biological kids.  Their oldest Ian is almost 6.  He is sensitive, intense and passionate about everything, and loves to take things apart and figure out how they work.  Chava is almost 4.  She loves gymnastics and taking careful care of her dolls, including regular diaper changes.  Micah is almost 2.  He loves whatever his older siblings are doing, but most of all he loves trains and helping mommy and daddy in the kitchen by stirring and tasting.  Ray works in IT at Dell, Inc.  Alex takes good care of the kids at home full time, and also is starting to homeschool Ian.
 

Ray and Alex were completely surprised when the pieces starting very quickly falling in to place to adopt.  Alex had shown Ray a waiting child on RR that had caught her eye, when he surprisingly responded that they could consider adopting.  After a week or two of much discussing and dreaming they formally started down the path to grow their family.  They have felt a particular affinity to HIV+ kids, and look forward to bringing Max and Lena home where proper nutrition and medical care can make a world of difference in their prognosis.

Alicia

Girl, Born 2004

SIGNIFICANT RISK, PLEASE ADOPT ME SOON!!  ALICIA HAS BEEN TRANSFERRED.

SO THANKFUL FOR A NEW PIC OF ALICIA!!   Miss Alicia is a beautiful little girl who needs a loving family.  Her other two typically developing sisters were adopted by other families already.
Listed: August 7, 2010

Alicia was born to an HIV+ mother, and is HIV+ herself.  She has also has significant delays and challenges associated with her FAS.  (fetal alcohol syndrome).  We are waiting to learn if she has any medical complications, but she is cognitively delayed and does show signs of attention deficit and hyperactivity.    Alicia will do best where she can be the focus of attention and have her Daddy wrapped around her finger 🙂    Alicia has SO much potential, and deserves a family as much as her other sisters do.   I know there is a family out there for this little girl!  She is facing the mental institution soon, but has grown up in a loving and well kept orphanage so far.  A committed family now can prevent her transfer!

From an adoptive family who visited with her in July 2010:  ” Alicia absolutely LOVES one on one attention. she is front and center if you are handing out kisses and hugs. You can see she wants a Mama all her own, and it will be so hard on her to have her sister leave to be adopted, as her other sister was already adopted.   (Their mother is deceased, most likely from AIDS).   She likes to swing.   She loved to lay her head in my lap while we were both on the bench swing and I would stroke her hair. The other kids didnt like to share my attention but Alicia was ok with it.   I could have two in my lap and she didn’t mind, but she didnt like being crowded out when the other child decided they wanted me all to themselves.  She likes sensory input.   She kept rubbing her arm across my husband’s unshaved face and shivering and making the funniest face and then immediately doing it again.  She likes to go down the slide again and again.   She really likes to be in the  middle of whatever is going on, and be included. But often she is excluded, even by attendants.  For Alicia it’s a vicious circle. She is delayed, she gets frustrated, they don’t let her do things the others are doing, she gets more delayed and more frustrated. She is VERY VERY SWEET AND LOVING.  She needs a family that has only a couple kids, not ten. She has HIV.   If you want a little girl to hug and kiss, she will GLADLY take all the hugs and kisses you can hand out. She isn’t afraid of men but isn’t inappropriate either. I saw her with my husband as well as another couple of young men who visit regularly.  Alicia is on the small side, like maybe size 4.  The children are valued and loved at this orphanage.   The grounds are visually stimulating and the kids get outside for a couple hours in the morning as well as afternoon.   They even go swimming in the pool they have there.   Hope someone will come for Alicia very soon!”   Alicia is toilet-trained and able to say when she needs to use the restroom.  She has tremendous potential if someone would take her home and love her!

Our Waiting Children

Reece’s Rainbow is a  registered 501(c)3 charity which advocates and fundraises for the international adoption and rescue of children with Down syndrome specifically. Reece’s Rainbow is not an adoption agency and does not approve families for adoption, we are only a connecting point for these children to their “forever families”.  Reece’s Rainbow serves as a VOICE OF HOPE for these children who are languishing in orphanages and mental institutions around the world, when there are literally hundreds of families here in the US and Canada who would rescue them if only the funds were available to do so!!

Grant funds from individual donations make the cost of adopting these beautiful children affordable for interested families.  In seven years, we have found adoptive families for 1000+ children in countries around the world.  We still have over 1000 waiting children on our site who are in need of adoptive families.

You don’t have to adopt to make a difference!

A new fundraising program is being launched for anyone who likes to run/walk in 5K/10K/30K events!  The program is called “One Step Closer to Home”, and provides you with a fabulous new graphic and opportunity to raise awareness and donations for Reece’s Rainbow. If you’d like to organize a full RR event, or just run in another race with our logo, please contact Kelly Mokashi. To check out T-shirts, mugs, and other items at our Cafe Press store, click HERE.

Connecting the Rainbow – An Outreach Program for Birth Families of Children with Down Syndrome Abroad.  The primary focus of Reece’s Rainbow is to raise grant funds and promote the international adoption and rescue of children with Down syndrome in particular.  However, our long term goal is to eliminate the need for Reece’s Rainbow by serving as a catalyst for social change abroad.  

Being an orphan warrior for a child costs nothing but your time.   Any of our 0-5  children (Down syndrome, HIV+, or “Other Angels”) are eligible to have warriors.    Use Facebook, email, your blog, any other way you can to help your chosen child find their “forever family”.   Learn more

Be a Prayer Warrior for one of our waiting children.  Prayer is FREE and can be even more powerful than an adoption grant in finding an adoptive family, helping with fundraising, and seeking God’s favor in the health and well-being of each child as they wait “at the end of Reece’s Rainbow” for their forever family.   Learn more

Donate to the Voice of Hope Fund.  Reece’s Rainbow is a totally non-profit organization.  We function solely on private donations to fund the monthly operational expenses that we have. Donations to this fund help us with critical operational and marketing/advertising expenses. It doesn’t feel as warm and fuzzy as donating for a child’s grant fund, but it is much needed!  Learn more
