Waiting Boys

Okay, here are some of the waiting boys listed on Reece's Rainbow.  All these boys are in China and all of them need families!  Please consider if one of these little guys is meant to be yours.  And if you can't adopt right now, please consider donating to one of their adoption grants.  Even $5 helps.  Money shouldn't have to be what stands in the way of these little ones finding a family.  So the more money that we can get in their accounts, the more likely they to be adopted!!

Teagan is a cutie pie!  I bet he would really blossom and develop quickly if only he had a family to give him the attention he deserves!

Boy, born January 20, 2007

Because Teagan has Down syndrome, his physical development, intelligence and mental development developed slowly and was delayed compared to kids of similar age obviously, especially motion and flexibility of his limbs were slightly poorer. In recent years, with the efforts of this institute and foster parents, he can stand by holding onto objects, walk slowly. Now according to his growth foster parents offered him speech rehabilitative and limb training every day.

Teagan is shy, has a ready smile, likes to listen to music very much. When music plays all of his attention is attracted. When being glad he will swing his body following the musical rhythms. He likes to play toys very much, in particular toy cars are his favorite toys. We hope that he who is shy could become more and more active.

Jimmy is really in need of a family!  If he doesn't find one soon, it is possible that he may not be able to be adopted at all!  :(  Please consider this sweet little guy!

 Jimmy, Born March 30, 2007   

From a missionary who visited with him in May 2010: " Jimmy is a delightful three year old with Down Syndrome. He is decribed as being quiet and playful. Jimmy doesn’t walk by himself yet, but he can get anywhere he needs by holding onto furniture and walls. He only says a few words, but understands so much more. Jimmy has a close relationship with his foster father. When foster dad hugs him and raises him up, he laughs happily. Jimmy also loves the outdoors. When foster mom takes him to pick up his older foster brother from school, he raises his head in his stroller, looks at the sky, and laughs heartily. He is curious about everything. "
Update in July 2011: Jimmy, now four years old, has been on the shared list for a long time … At the time his file was submitted, he didn’t even walk yet! Now he runs. When the file was prepared, he didn’t speak at all. He’s still a man of few words, but he does call those in his foster family by name … If his family doesn’t find him soon, they may move him out of his foster home to make room for another child who they feel may have a better chance at a family."

Luke is older and he really needs to find a family!  He looks like he is really needing a mommy!

Henry is such a little guy.  He is not quite 3 years old yet and it would be the perfect time for a family to bring him home.  He is super cute too!

From a missionary who visited with her in August 2010: “ Henry is so cute! Totally healthy and chubby, and will do great in a family.”

All these little guys are just precious.  Like I said above, please consider adopting an orphan with Down syndrome! 

I know... it can be scary and overwhelming to think about going through the whole international process. It can also be scary to think about how your life might change by bringing a child from an orphanage home. And if you don't already have experience with DS, it might seem even more challenging. What will it be like?  Will they be able to bond to your family?  Will you be able to bond to them?  Will they have all kinds of behaviors and issues that you can't handle?  There are so many questions.  And it definitely requires alot of research and reading and learning about all those issues!!  For sure don't go into something without researching and learning all you can about it!!!  

But I am also here to say that it is totally worth it.  Our family would not be the same without our daughters.  We are so glad we stepped out in faith and adopted the girls.  Was it hard work?  Yes!!  Was it sometimes not so easy and very stressful?  Yes! 
But it was oh so worth it!  :)

Dirty faces and all.

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.
