Find Me Friday: Patrick, Stephanie (EE), Anders, & Jasper!


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 or group of children with you who are 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’ child is: Patrick! He was born in 2017, lives in an Eastern European country, and is waiting for his forever family to find him. He is eligible to be adopted by single moms, older parents, and large families! He was listed in September 2019.

I am eligible for a $2,000 Grant! This grant is offered by Reece’s Rainbow for children in this specific country. Grant funds are dependent on available funding.

Patrick’s Medical History

Patrick has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and some unspecified developmental delays. He sees therapists and other professionals frequently.

Other Information About Patrick

Patrick is currently living with a foster family who has worked with therapists and professionals to address his developmental and physical needs. As a result, he’s making progress in all areas. He can now walk when supported by one hand. He recognizes his own name and his reflection in the mirror. He fixes his gaze on and manipulates small objects. He can pronounce age-appropriate combinations of sounds, “dada”, “papa”, etc. He eats blended food and can now drink water from a glass with a straw.

Videos from August 2019 show him walking while holding one hand, engaged with the photographer, responding with words like “dada”, and being very interactive and inquisitive.

Stephanie rolls from back to stomach and stomach to back, crawls short distances mainly by pulling herself with her left arm, and sits with minimal back support. When placed in a walker, she can move backwards with her legs. She will hold a toy that is handed to her, but once she drops it, she often doesn’t look for it. If she finds a toy in her space, she will grab it. She is making sounds and producing basic syllables. She laughs and smiles when caregivers interact with her.
