It is our true belief that there is a “forever family” for each of our waiting orphans with special needs. The purpose of Reece’s Rainbow is to raise funds as adoption grants, to help potential adoptive families with the high cost of giving these children the life they so richly deserve.

Your donations and advocacy turn the child on the left into the child on the right!

Guy

Boy, born 2015
PRC
Down Syndrome, Inguinal Hernia, Hydrocele

Listed: September 2017

Guy is cute as a button! This sweet boy first arrived at his institution when he was just a couple of days old. He adapted to life well – his nannies tell us he is a good eater and sleeper who grew into handsome boy quickly. Guy likes to play with toys that are brightly colored, and he is very happy watching other kiddos sing, dance, and play around him. He loves to interact with his caretakers and will babble excitedly as he plays with them! They tell us he is generally a smiley, happy boy who rarely cries.

 

Guy has had surgery for his hernia, and he made great improvements after he recovered from the procedure! With the help of rehabilitation therapy he learned to sit on his own, turn over, and crawl. He makes eye contact with his nannies and knows when his name is called, but he will not always respond when he hears it.

Please help Guy find his forever family!

Chip is a cutie who knows his name and will look when called. He enjoys playing with toys. He has a strong grip and can also transfer toys from one hand to the other. He loves toys that make sounds and when people play games with him. He laughs loudly when happy. Chip shouts loudly when he wants to get adults’ attention and always claps his hands happily when his needs are met.

Chip has good fine motor skills and can pick-up small balls with his thumb and index finger. He tries to use his cup to drink. When he is not in agreement with something, he will shake his head.

He can be shy, but he gets along very well with his peers and teachers and warmly greets those familiar to him. Zack adapts well to new situations. He is able to feed himself, get dressed and undressed without assistance, use the bathroom alone, and wash his hands without help.

He has some language skills, good fine and gross motor skills, and he knows his numbers, colors, and sizes. Zack can speak common characters, words, and short sentences, though he has poor pronunciation. He can walk, use the stairs, and jump by himself. He enjoys playing catch and playing with balls.

Zack was abandoned at 6 months old. He was born with Down Syndrome and patent ductus arteriosus, a congenital heart defect. We do not have any information at this time on treatment Zack has received for his heart condition, but we have asked for more information about this.

In order to help Zack find a family, we are waiving our entire agency fee. Zack’s family will be responsible for the costs of their homestudy, post-placement reports, dossier authentication, China’s dossier log-in and translation fees, USCIS fees, orphanage donation and travel expenses. Our staff will assist Zack’s family with grant applications and fundraising. The $13,000 federal Adoption Tax Credit may also be beneficial to Zack’s family.

Zack’s bright, goofy personality shines through in his photos. Could he brighten up your family?

Rebecca

Rebecca celebrated “Night To Shine” with Tim Tebow in February 2019.

guardianangel Girl, born 2014
LA-E3
Down syndrome

Listed: April 2017

Rebecca celebrated “Night To Shine” with special visitor Tim Tebow in February 2019.

Rebecca has a diagnosis of Down syndrome, and has some cognitive delays. She has less muscle tone and strength than other children her age. She can walk well, but is a little wobbly at times. The physical therapist monitors her growth and works with her on exercises and activities to help strength her muscles and improve coordination.

We see improvements every day. Rebecca has transitioned from the baby home to the toddler home. She likes being one of the ‘big kids’ and can feed herself.

Rebecca has an infectious smile and the Tías love asking her for a hug because she will run and jump in their arms for a full body hug! She has a favorite doll with rosy cheeks that she takes with her everywhere, and shows her to everyone. Like any toddler, Rebecca dislikes broccoli. Unlike many toddlers, she does not like to be tickled, and gets angry if anyone tries to make her smile!
