PD: 2 children cuddle, & has Down Syndrome. Text over the image reads: “reecesrainbow.org. Live simply so others may simply live. Mother Theresa. #downsyndrome #adoption #specialneeds #orphannomore”
Update 6/22: the MACC campaign has now closed. Look for this year’s MACC campaign around December! Remember, you can still donate to any child’s adoption grant fund any time of the year. Donnie is still available for adoption.
If you are interested in becoming a Miracle Maker for a child during Reece’s Rainbow’s “Miracle of Adoption Christmas Campaign”, previously called the Angel Tree Project, follow this link. There, you will choose a child to support, fundraise for, and ultimately be an advocate for that child. Collect donations, host a party, start a fundraiser, or host a raffle, giveaway, or auction.
The family behind Hands Full of Blooms is participating in this campaign. They are supporting Posey, along with tending to their own current pending adoption (the husband is traveling to meet all the children and accept their referrals).
Posey has CP, is blind, and has some other medical needs. She is 8 years old.
From her RR sponsorship page:
From a family who met her in late 2016:
Posey is a tiny, dainty little girl. She sometimes seems a bit cautious of her surroundings due to her vision impairment. Orphanages can be scary places. Posey is in the bedridden wing of her institution. She was out in the open in a group of a few of the healthiest looking children. Sometimes when there are visitors to the orphanage this group is taken out of their beds and cribs. They are placed in wheelchairs in front of a TV in a main room. Since Posey was in this group I am REALLY hoping it will mean she is getting some extra food and attention.
My husband had a great time playing with her. She smiled and interacted with him. She seems to be completely blind, but she does turn her head to follow the sound of your voice. She held onto his fingers with her hands. I don’t know how much she can move in general because she is always laying down or rarely out in a chair like that. She would benefit SO much from therapy and medication to keep her muscles loose. He said she is absolutely beautiful, but we already knew that.
