This month marks Reece's Rainbow's 4th anniversary. In four years over 250 children have had committed families and nearly $500,000 in adoption grants have been dispersed.
Initially Reece's Rainbow was just one Mum trying to find families for a handful of children but since that time those countries have seen that there are people who want these children and have opened the doors to many many other children who are waiting for families.
There are many who volunteer and advocate for Reece's Rainbow and there are new programmes that have sprung up under the Reece's Rainbow umbrella. Connecting the Rainbow seeks to support those families in those same countries who make the brave choice to keep their child.
There are also several support ministries within Reece's Rainbow. All of these programmes started by people who when they realised the fate of the children in these countries could not just sit by and do nothing.
The following video is our updated for the 4th anniversary ministry video. This video has many of the families that have gone and brought home these precious children giving them a family. Since last October when the video was first made by our Director, 80% of the children in it needed to be updated since those children are now home with their families!
So there are new faces of children that need families and your prayers and donations, there are new photos of our families now home with their child and even some photos of some of the Reece's Rainbow families whilst in Ukraine at the same time during their adoptions!
Please share the video with people you know, your family, friends, co-workers, church. If you are one of the families in the video, especially!
Thank you to all of you who support Reece's Rainbow through prayer, donations, advocacy and so many other ways. And in our Director, Andrea Roberts' words, "thank you to the true heroes who are out there braving 12 hour intercontinental flights, foreign customs officials, crazy high heels and insane drivers, smoky trains, bizarre toilets, air drying your clothes, cold showers, and the sad eyes and broken hearts of all the little ones who come running to you, wishing you were there for THEM."
