This is sweet Anne Marie (Anya), a little girl who was born with
Down syndrome, who most likely spent all of her days laying in her crib,
or sitting in a stroller watching the other children run and play.
She would have turned 5 yrs old next month. Sadly, she has recently
passed away. This is heartbreaking, and she never knew the love of a family.

Please read the following post from a fellow Reece's Rainbow family who
had the opportunity to meet and interact with this little girl this past summer.
News like this is so hard to hear. Many tears have fallen over the past
few hours for this little girl and the many others just like her that are still waiting.
And in light of my very recent feeling-sorry-for-myself post, I have realized
that these few hard days that we have been having are but little tiny
pieces of the big picture. I remember why I am here. It is sad that it takes
this kind of news to slap you in the face and make you think clearly! I do not
like the fact that my daughters had to spend another night in their crib, laying there waiting. But they will get out! They will, they will!! Soon.
Many others will not. So many others. Please consider adopting one of these
precious little ones. Or at least please sponsor a child, donate to their Reece's Rainbow grant.
There are many families that want to adopt, but have such a hard time financially.
There are ways you can help (literally) save the life of an orphan!!

poor sweet baby! It puts thing in perspective though! Praise Jesus for your Girls and for you and Mark for answering Gods call. Now there are "2 less!"

And your ears will hear a word behind you, "This is the way, walk in it", whenever you turn to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21

Psalm 139:13-16

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
