The Bowling family is hoping to adopt Alda and Mikel. Alda is a 5-year-old girl with Cerebral Palsy and Mikel is a baby boy with Down syndrome. They are hoping to travel by the end of November or the first part of December.
The Bowlings have been married for 26 years and they have 11 biological children with twin boys in Heaven. Their children range in age from 3-22, with six of them still living at home. When asked why they want to adopt children with special needs they said, “We just felt we were led by God to the site Reece's Rainbow and that a child needs a home whether they have special needs or not. Where God leads He can equip us!”
The advice they would give to those who want to adopt is- “It is not as scary or as hard as it looks.” They continued on to say, “God has opened the doors for us to be able to proceed. We always felt we would never be approved since we have so many biological children.”
The Bowling family still needs a Family Warrior. If you are interested in becoming their family warrior, please visit our Family Warrior Program page to learn about the warrior program and to sign up!
Even if you are not in a position to adopt, Reece's Rainbow provides a very personal, meaningful, and powerful way to change the course of a child's life!
The Reece's Rainbow Prayer Warrior Ministry was created with three goals in mind:
To lift the daily needs of each waiting child up in prayer
To lift Reece's Rainbow up in prayer
To lift the families whom God is preparing for each waiting child up in prayer
The Guardian Angel Project effort is to increase awareness and raise additional grant donations for our "Other Angels", those children with other special needs (not Down syndrome) who are also waiting for their forever families to find them.
There many “Other Angels” on our website in need of grant donations and adoptive families.

For any questions about ANY of the Warrior Programs,
The world we live in is ever-changing. World crisis after world crisis. Putin invades Ukraine. ISIS on the march. Ebola in the US. Hunger, disease, poverty, war. Even in our own families, we live with crises every day. Life can feel very overwhelming.
One constant & recurring result of these world crises is that of ORPHANS. And as overwhelming as THAT in and of itself may be, Reece's Rainbow is committed to doing our small part to rectify it. 1500+ orphaned children, born with Down syndrome & other special needs around the world, have found loving adoptive families with the help of Reece's Rainbow. Every penny donated, every link shared or tweeted, has been life-altering for each of these kids.
Our Annual Christmas Angel Tree starts in just 16 days. 16 DAYS. And we still have 106 waiting orphans who do not have dedicated warriors fighting for them during this 2 month project. Being an Angel Tree warrior is so much fun! It's a very meaningful and personal way to serve a specific child. You're trying to raise $1000 or more for your chosen child from Nov 1-Dec 31. Social media is a tremendous tool (Facebook, Twitter, blogs, email), and something you can do with little effort.
