Christmas Warrior

Our YES Kids group has become a Christmas Warrior for Daniel who is an orphan in Russia awaiting adoption. Reece's Rainbow is a non-profit started by a mom to help kids in other countries with Down syndrome find forever families. These kids live in orphanages, some are well taken care of, some are very poor and left alone in cribs most of the time. At age 3 or 4 many are transferred to mental institutions to live out the rest of their lives in deplorable conditions. It is very sad. The fees to adopt overseas is usually over $20,000, so RR raises funds to go towards those adoptions. We are going to try and add to Daniel's bank account in hopes that someone will want to adopt him if some of the money is taken care of. If you donate at least $35, RR will send you a Christmas ornament. All donations are tax-deductable. Thanks for helping out!!

  1. I read your comment on Kelle's blog. Don't you seriously hate the fact that our kids are at such risk for leukemia? I can't even begin to tell you how it feels to lose your child to this. Today is the 1 year anniversary of Kristen's relapse. Heavy heart today as every day. I have been looking at Reece's rainbow a lot lately. My heart breaks for these little children.
