Information about Domestic Adoption and Advocacy for children with Down syndrome

Although Reece’s Rainbow is focused on the international adoption of children with Down syndrome and other special needs, there are resources available for families seeking to adopt DOMESTICALLY and also for US birth families who are seeking an adoptive family for their new baby with Down syndrome.


The National Down Syndrome Adoption Network is a fantastic non-profit program that offers support and information to birth parents whose child has received a diagnosis of Down syndrome, and may be considering an adoption plan for their child. They also have a registry of families from all over the United States who are interested in adopting a child with Down syndrome within the US. There are no fees for their services, and they help with private and public adoptions in the US.

You can visit their website at


There are also several other agencies you can contact, such as  and to seek and/or place a child with Down syndrome for adoption.

We are grateful to those birth families who have chosen adoption, and given their child a chance to reach their full potential in a loving, adoptive family.
