Home 8 months!!

Thursday, 5 July 2012


I don't do enough advocating for the children of Reece's Rainbow, yet my heart aches for so many of them.  There are always those that begin to tug at your heart for one reason or another and Mabel is one of those.  Mabel is 7 years old and has been waiting too long.  She is a precious little girl who I can tell would look absolutely adorable with her hair grown out and a big bow.  Sadly she is not walking yet and it not receiving ANY therapy.  I just know it would only take this little girl months in a loving home to start walking and to do who knows what else.  

Will you all please join me in spreading the word about Mabel?  She has almost 2,000 in her grant fund.  She deserves a family of her own.


Girl, born May 2005
Diagnosis:  Down syndrome

Mabel is a very shy, calm natured little girl.  Right now, she does not appear to be walking at all.  In the pictures, she had been brought in from another groupa and was in an unfamiliar place, so she was a little nervous in a new environment.  Sadly, in the orphanage at this time, she is unable to get any therapy.  Imagine her potential and what she could do if she was getting physical, occupational and speech therapy!  Mabel truly needs someone to adopt her soon, and help her become all that God has intended for her to be!

Poor, sad little Mabel — she’s been chewing on her sleeves and hands for self-soothing.   She’s such a tiny little bird — please help her find a family so she can reach her full potential!  She has the most beautiful eyes, let’s help put the shine back in them!
MABEL can stand for “Mothers Always Bring Extra Love,” and if ever a child needed extra love, it is this precious girl.  She has no one to love on her- so she’s chewing on her hands and sleeves. Her little hands look raw. What a horrible way to have to comfort yourself- to just be a darling baby and no one love on you because you happen to have an extra chromosome.  She’s tiny, no bigger than a 3 year old. Her cheeks are raw, from her having her wet hands against them, and the cool air of winter hitting them.  Somewhere, this child has a mom that will bring “extra love” for this precious child of God with an “extra chromosome”. Mama? Do you see me?

  1. Isn't she beautiful! Such a treasure! I wish the world thought the same way!

  2. She sure is. Just breaks my heart! Praying for her a loving home soon!
