Update August 2019: In the 3 days since this has been posted, Holleigh’s family has already been matched with her!
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: Misty! She was born in 2017, lives in an Asian country, and is waiting for her family to find her. She is eligible to be adopted by single moms!
Misty has a $9 donation grant so far, which I’d love to see grow! Can you help her out?
