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: Camille! She lives in an Asian country and is waiting for her family to find her. She is available to married couples and single mothers!
Camille has a total donated FSP grant of just $4.50, as she is newly-listed, to be used toward her adoption! Please consider donating to her grant if you cannot adopt at this time. In addition, Camille has a $1,000 agency grant for her adoption with her current adoption agency.

PD: Camille has short black hair & dark, almond-shaped eyes, as well as a curious expression! She sits at a table, holding a red marker to paper. She wears a white long-sleeve t-shirt w/ a graphic pattern.
Camille’s Medical History
Camille was born with Down syndrome.
It does not appear that Camille attends formal school according to her file.
Other information About Camille
Camille was born in 2014 and is described as an adorable little girl who is said to be active and smiley. Camille can walk, run, and go up and down stairs. She has a strong imitating ability and likes holding writing utensils to scribble. Camille recognizes her name and understands simple instructions. She occasionally calls “mama.” Camille can build a tower with blocks, and she enjoys chasing adults and listening to musical toys. She also likes playing with other children and wants to excel.
Camille’s gross motor skills are basically normal. She can walk, run, and jump independently, but her balance ability lags behind other kids her age. Her fine motor skills are generally normal. She can independently complete finger pinching, eating, washing hands, washing face, etc., but her coordination skills are relatively poor. She clearly speaks “Mama, Ayi (aunt), Chifan (eat rice), Nihao (hello), bye-bye, Zuo (sit down).” However, she doesn’t usually speak clearly. Sometimes, when she says a word, she will utter “ah, ah, ah” in a hurry. She understands instructions such as “throw the rubbish into the garbage can” and “set the table and chairs for lunch/dinner.”
When seeing caretakers standing and feeding other kids, Camille will bring a stool and ask the caretakers to have a seat. She is gentle in character and gets along with other kids peacefully. She has strong imitation ability, such as learning from her caretakers how to fold clothes and quilts. When watching TV, she will imitate dancing. She is extroverted and very enthusiastic towards visitors. She is not picky about food and has good sleep at night.
Today’s second featured ‘Find Me Friday’ child is: Rae! She lives in an Asian country and is waiting for her family to find her. She is available to married couples and single mothers!
Rae has a total donated FSP grant of just under $250, to be used toward her adoption! Please consider donating to her grant if you cannot adopt at this time. There is a $1,000 agency grant for Rae’s adoption with her current adoption agency.
Video available from May 2020!
PD: Rae has shaved black hair & beautiful, dark almond-shaped eyes. She sits propped against the sides of her crib w/ her arms up near her head & a toy resting on her legs. She wears a raindrop print long-sleeve white shirt & sweatpants.
Rae’s Medical History
Rae was born with Down syndrome and a heart defect (CHD-ASD). She was reported to have developmental delays commonly seen with children with Down syndrome, but she has been diligently working to meet milestones.
Rae doesn’t have any schooling, and isn’t particularly attached to caregivers.
Other information About Rae
Rae was born in 2016.
Update May 2020:
Rae is described as gentle and quiet. She is relatively weak physically, and delayed in terms of gross motor skills and speech development. She’s not yet potty-trained. She holds her bottle and drinks milk. She can sit up on her own, but she cannot run, jump, or climb up or down stairs. When playing, she occasionally reaches out her hand. She cannot pick up tiny things yet. She’s begun to utter one-syllable sounds. Her file says she likes to play hide and seek — I bet she’s adorable playing “Peek-a-boo”! Please help this tiny girl find her family, where she’ll be loved and treasured for exactly who she is.
Precious Rae has the most expressive faces! Rae’s caregivers say that she is calm and easy-going. At the time her file was prepared, she loved when her caregivers gave her a massage and when they held and talked to her. When the nanny told stories, she quietly listened and when the nanny called her, she looked at the nanny. Little Rae desperately needs an update, and we’re hoping one will come for her soon!
