Find ME Friday: Vernon, Magee, & Amos!


PD: RR’s logo states ‘Reece’s Rainbow’ across center, w/ signature 3 diagonal brush strokes in blue, pink, & green. Above & below in a circle are the words ‘Special needs adoption support’.

In this series, each Friday, I want to share a different child with you who is available for adoption and listed through the adoption advocacy website Reece’s Rainbow. All the kids who are listed on RR from Sarah’s Covenant Homes, India, the focus of my previous posts, have been posted about, so now I am focusing on a few kids or a sibling group listed on the site each Friday going forward. When more SCH kids are listed, I’ll continue to feature them!

Please note that the names used on RR are usually not the childrens’ real names, and their real names will only be shared with seriously interested families in order to protect their identity.

Today’s first featured ‘Find Me Friday’ kid is: Vernon! He was born in 2004, lives in an unspecified country most likely in Eastern Europe, and is waiting for his family to find him. He is eligible to be adopted by single moms, large families, and older parents! He was listed in July 2018. VERNON IS AT RISK OF AGING OUT!
