Every human life has value.

Reecesrainbow.pngThe majority of children prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome are never allowed to make it out of the womb alive. For those who do, especially in the Ukraine, many are abandoned at birth and could even be institutionalized after 4 or 5 years for the rest of their lives. Reece’s Rainbow helps these kids find loving homes. ABC News reports on one one lucky little girl who was saved from life in an institution thanks to this organization:

    Two thumbs up! We’re adopting through RR right now.

    (I warn you–you are likely to get spammed for posting this. The RR adoption blogs have been hit hard by a person who says all these families are buying their children and adoption is evil.)

    Hi Chelsea !! Have you endorsed anyone for president? If your candidate is Rick Santorum, I wanted to send you this page … https://www.facebook.com/groups/357723360921601/?notif_t=group_activity — it started up recently … also Tom and I have a number of pages, and Groups, but you might like this one … I’m going to link to your recent post on Adoration … https://www.facebook.com/groups/344459775565047/

    P.S. As an aside, we have Linux Ubuntu on our equipment now, and your titles of your posts partially cover up your first paragraphs ; I don’t know if that can be corrected on your end or not, or even if it has to do with Linux, but I thought you might like to know … Also, where it says “2 Responses to “Reece’s Rainbow: a Ray of Hope for Children With Down Syndrome” … that type is overlapping and very large …

    So beautiful, Chelsea! I have a plan to write a book about God’s love for His special-needs children and their parents. I am seeking testimonies from parents of special- needs children who have experienced God’s special love for them. Will you help me spread the word?

    I can send you a copy of one of my own testimonies about my spiritual journey with my daughter, Sofia, who will make 23 on January 18. She has severe autism and severe mental retardation. More than any other person in my life, she has drawn me close to the Lord and the Blessed Mother.

    Thank you,
    Cami Murphy

    Jeanette – no endorsements, but I do like Santorum a little better than the rest of the lot. And, no, I don’t know how to correct whatever problems you’re having with my posts, but I do wish something could be done about it!

    Cami – sure, please send me your testimony. I would love to read it! Have you seen Letitia Velasquez’s new book “A Special Mother is Born?” It’s similar to what you’re talking about writing.

    Thanks, Chelsea. I haven’t read the book, but I will, and I’ll send my testimony today.

    God bless,
    Cami
