Meet Lillian.............

Usually on Sundays I do a {this moment} post.  A picture with no words.  Something that captures my heart during the week. Well, this Sunday will be a bit different.  This week I am posting a picture of Lillian.  She is a beautiful child who needs a loving home.  Her picture is so adorable it doesn't need words, but words need to be spoken for her.

Lillian is in an orphanage.  She is in an orphanage because she was born with Down Syndrome.  Lillian deserves to have a home filled with love and laughter.  If not adopted she will be placed in an institution where she will likely die.  She needs to be rescued.  I can not imagine this sweet little person being left to rot away in an institution.  The thought kills me, makes me cry.  I would love to bring her into our family, but we just can't financially do it at this time.  I am hoping to change that and if Lillian hasn't found a family by that time, we would love to bring her into our family.
Lillian was born November 2007, so this little sweetie just had her 3rd birthday! 
Here is what a Reece's Rainbow coordinator has said about Lillian:

Character: sociable
What a stunning little girl!    From our coordinator:  "She was in the heart clinic not long ago and her diagnosis from there is that she has no heart problems. She has weight defficiency. She has good developmental dynamics, she is active, she likes to observe people doing something and tries to repeat, she likes lessons, her attention span is short, she can operate with easy puzzles, mosaics, can arrange blocks, understands speech and fulfills easy instructions, she pronounces easy words and syllables, she can walk up and down stairs. She walks and runs."

If you would like to know about how to adopt Lillian, please visit Reece's Rainbow.  There are so many deserving children waiting to bring you love, joy and happiness into your home.  Check out this link to find out the requirements to adopt internationally through Reece's Rainbow.

Don't know much about Down Syndrome?  Check out these books.  Or email me at  I would love to talk about the blessing of down syndrome.

If you are not in the position to adopt, please consider donating to her grant fund to help someone else bring her home.
