"Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart - but in it"

Angel Tree Kickoff

It's time for the Reece's Rainbow Angel Tree! It kicked off yesterday, November 1st. I will be fundraising for Warner. The children on Reece's Rainbow each have their own grant fund. The larger the grant fund, the more like a child is to find a forever family. A typical international adoption of a child with Down Syndrome is approximately $25,000 (average). Most families are more than able to financially support a child once they get home, but most families do NOT have an extra $25K laying around upfront. Think of it this way, what if you had to come up with $25K before you could have a child the "normal" way? Most people wouldn't have kids, would they? Remember, there is no shortage of families who are willing to adopt these precious children with Down Syndrome, only a shortage of funds to do so.

To donate to Warner's grant fund, simply click on the ornament on my sidebar with his beautiful picture on it. If you give $35, you will receive an Reece's Rainbow ornament with Warner's picture on it. I have never done this before so I can not wait to get an ornament. Eventually, I want to have a whole tree just for my little RR angels! Watch the video below before you decide if you will give or not.
