Christmas Angel Tree

"Give the gift of a family" this Christmas to the children who remain "unmatched" in our Waiting Angels Gallery. They may never know you, but your generous sponsorship towards the cost of a family adopting them is the most profound gift they could ever hope to receive.

For those of you who are new to our ministry, Reece's Rainbow promotes the international adoption of children with Down syndrome. (120) children with Down syndrome and other special needs have found adoptive families in only 2 years!! Donations from private individuals, businesses, and other charitable foundations have made it possible to provide adoption grants for nearly every child, meaning families have had the financial support they need to make a commitment. They have been able to rescue one or more of these precious children from orphanages and mental institutions around the world.

Our Christmas Angel Tree Project is our #1 fundraiser for the year. This is the only time when ALL of our waiting children with Down syndrome are openly visible and eligible for grant donations. By sponsoring a child today, you get to share in the joy of uniting families with very deserving children. The average cost of an international adoption is $25,000, so every penny we are able to raise can literally change the course of a child's life! And remember, 100% of your tax deductible donation goes directly to your sponsored child. Reece's Rainbow covers the cost of Paypal fees, shipping, printing, etc. (donations to our Raising Awareness fund are always welcome to help support these costs.)

With your sponsorship gift of $35 or more (per child), donors will receive a beautiful porcelain ornament, with your sponsored child's photo on the back, to hang on your Christmas Tree! Even if you are not Christian, you can still make a tremendous difference in the life of one or more of these children. If you prefer to NOT have an ornament sent to you, just let us know. The Angel Tree is a very meaningful and personal Christmas gift donation opportunity. We will send the ornament, along with a beautiful gift card, announcing your gift to the intended recipient. These are great gifts for your friends, family, teachers, therapists, etc! International sponsors are welcome as well!

We invite you to browse the profiles of our families who are already home with their children, and those who are in various stages of the international adoption process. We are so excited about the remarkable success this ministry has already enjoyed (120+ children with Down syndrome and other special needs have found their families in only two years), and the MIRACLE that grant donations from this Angel Tree Project will mean for each of these beautiful children!



Girl, Born March 31, 2005

Nastya is a precious little girl with dark brown hair and hazel/brown eyes. She is able to stand on her own, and pull up, but she is not walking on her own yet. She is typically a very active little girl though, and will really blossom in a loving family! She was born with a VSD, so she will need to be followed by a cardiologist when she gets home .

She is already 3 1/2, so she is living on borrowed time.

Anastasia and Tonya are in the same orphanage, and can be adopted together for very little additional cost. Please consider saving both of them!

I have $250 in my grant fund towards the cost of my adoption!

This gorgeous, healthy little girl is waiting for you to save her from life in a mental institution. Tonya is HEALTHY, very active and playful and capable. She has brown hair and big brown eyes. She is already 3, so she is living on borrowed time.

Anastasia and Tonya are in the same orphanage, and can be adopted together for very little additional cost. Please consider saving both of them!

On Saturday December 13 2008 my son david is marrying the love of his life Samantha.
Where have the years gone? How did he grow up so fast?
I know they will treasure each other always.
Samantha welcome to the family. We love you both.

Just wanted to sneak in here and leave you a message and to let you know that I love you.
I am so glad that you are my aunt. I will always have all the special memories of everything that we have done together. I have seen all the pictures of you rocking me to sleep when I was a baby and smiling down at me. You always took the time to make me feel special even though you were very busy with your own children. Your door was always opened to all of us and I am sure everyone feels the same way about you as I do. You were always there to lend and ear, a shoulder to cry on, a smile, a hug, a kiss, and an I love you no matter what. You have seen seen me through everything in life and now that I am grown and have a niece I want to be there for her as you were for me. You will always be like a second mom to me.
Love ya

Approx. 40 beautiful children where taken from the baby houses and transferred to institutions. There is no guarentee that these children will be able to be adopted at this point. Have not heard yet on who the children were or if any of them have already been committed to. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers. Together we will be there for each other during this time as the family unit that we have become.
Please keep the Malone family and the Loux family in your prayers during their time of need.
Linda is also over there on a long journey as again plans were halted and she has except new referrals for 2 different girls. She has said that at this time it may take until March to bring them home.
Please take a few minutes to look at all the christmas angel tree children and remember that all donations go towards thier adoptions. Any donation of $35 or more will get you a beautiful christmas ornament with the child you are donating to.
