In Memory....

Two days ago, we received word that two of Reece's Rainbow girls, both with Down Syndrome, passed away from a flu epedimic. Both Margarita and Katerina had been transferred and were living in a mental institution.

While we are sad, we know that they are no longer in pain. However, they did not get to experience the love of a family here on earth. That is why our family is even more committed to bringing little Bella home. If we had not committed to her, she would probably be moved to a similar institution shortly after she turns four, which is just next Tuesday. We are assured that the orphanage will hold her there until we come to take her home.

It is more important than ever that Christians from around the world, put God's words into action. God tells us this in his Word:

"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act. Proverbs 24:12

Please look at this link to see some of the children who are most at risk. http://www.reecesrainbow.org/atrisk.htm Pray for them to be adopted into a family....maybe even yours?????
