In this series, each Friday, I want to share a different child or children 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.

Simon has been diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, a history of seizures, and mild hearing loss in the left ear. Simon is non-verbal, but does communicate through facial expressions and some noises. He takes 30 mg of Phenobarbital for seizures once daily. Therapy has helped lessen spasms, and Simon can open and close his hands.
Unfortunately, no information is given on his profile about whether or not Simon receives educational services.
Other Information About Simon
Simon is a very sweet little boy who currently lives with several older girls and is the last remaining “baby” in his home. Simon loves being around people and making faces! When praying before meals, he bows down his head and says “ahh” when everyone says “Amen.” We’re hoping a wonderful loving family comes forward for this special little boy!
A traveling family met Simon and said the following:
Within the three days we spent at the orphanage, we were able to bond with him to the point he would smile and get excited when he saw us. The older girls told us he can understand what they say to him. He enjoys being held and carried around, but spends most of his day sitting in a baby walker or high chair. He seems very easy-going, as we didn’t see him complain about being put in his crib for nap-time, etc. The caregivers are working on his motor skills. He can eat with assistance, and enjoyed the ice cream we brought! It’s so easy to fall in love with this little boy! We are praying his family sees him soon!
