The Gift of Family

(reposted with permission from Reece's Rainbow)

The Reece's Rainbow Annual Christmas Angel Tree is here again!  

The Angel Tree is Reece's Rainbow's biggest fundraiser of each year, from November 1-December 31.  It is a very special time to share in the future of an orphaned child with Down syndrome.

In only five years, donations have made it possible for more than 500+ children with Down syndrome and other special needs to find their "forever families".  That is PROOF that your gifts truly are saving lives and changing hearts around the world.

Donate $35 or more to a waiting child's adoption grant, and you will recieve a beautiful photo ornament of that child. 

These are great gifts for friends/family/teachers/therapists, and your money will truly help to save a child's life.  Gift cards are also available with your donation.

Nobody wants more scented hand lotion! 

GIVE THE GIFT OF A FAMILY to a child with Down syndrome.  Ornaments are limited in quantity, get yours today!

Another Year on the Angel Tree

For the second year in a row, our family will be prayer and fundraising warriors for Isaiah.  As I wrote in THIS POST about a year ago, Isaiah is a young boy with Down syndrome living in an orphanage in Eastern Europe.  He is not with his birthfamily simply because he has one extra chromosome.  

My hope and prayer is that this year will be the LAST year for Isaiah to be on the Angel Tree.  My family and I pray DAILY for him to know God and to know the peace and love of a family.  (And due to regulations in Russia based on my health history, we are not able to adopt him ourselves.)

Our goal is to raise $1000 in the next 60 days.  He already has a grant of $1418.  The total cost to adopt a child in Eastern Europe is over $25,000.  I know that there are MANY people who might want to bring him home, but the issue of money is a huge stumbling block.  Together, we can help lessen that burden and show our love and support to this sweet boy and his future family!

In the sidebar, you will see a donation box.  This is a link directly to Reece's Rainbow.  All donations are tax deductible! 

I do not see the list of donors.  However, if you are comfortable and as a favor to me,  please leave a comment or send me an e-mail if you have donated, so that I may thank you personally.  May God bless you richly for your prayers and support for this little boy!
