21.3.10: Meet the precious Zoe

In honor of World Down Syndrome Day on March 21, Reece’s Rainbow has a special project this month to help sponsor children for adoption. 
I have chosen little Zoe as my special girl, to spread the news and put her cute little face out there, hoping that someone might want to scoop her up and bring her home. 
zoe-rr Her birthday is just 6 days before Braska’s.   She has just 8 months left in her “baby house” before she will be sent to a mental institution.  Rarely do small children live more than a year in that environment.  I just can’t bear to consider my Braska going to a place where no one would interact with her and she would be left to fend for herself, IF she’s not restrained to her bed.

How I wish I could go and get her, along with several other little ones, or at the very least find families to give them homes.  Yet all that is open for me right now is to tell everyone about the need, and pray that people will open their hearts for little Zoe.  She’s healthy!  She’s walking and eating and active and will blend so well with a new family!

From the Reece’s Rainbow site:
Beautiful blonde hair and a glowing personality. She is healthy, with no heart condition. She is fully functional...walking, active, many words, able to eat and dress with minimal assistance, and an orphanage favorite.

She is facing the institution, please consider adopting Zoe!

More photos available, please inquire.

We have many children waiting in this same orphanage who can be adopted together. Children in this orphanage are not held much past the age of 4, so we need a family quickly.

I’m asking 3 things of you all, every reader…
1. Prayerfully consider if Zoe might be waiting for YOU specifically.  Do you have a place in your family for her?  You may not feel you have much to offer, but is a family not better than an institution for a 4-year-old??

2. Can you give just $21 to Zoe’s fund?  If you are unable to adopt her yourself, can you share this minimal amount with the family who WILL come for her?  There are so many families who desperately want to adopt but simply do not have the finances to do so.  Can you help THEM if you’re not in a position to bring her to your home? You’ll see a Chip-In box in the right margin under Zoe’s button. Donations are tax deductible.

3. Will you post Zoe’s button on your blog or Facebook page, asking others these same questions?  The code for the button is below and in the right margin.Photobucket


  1. Thanks. Posted link to Zoe on FB. Praying someone will soon make her their own!

  2. Aww, I wish I were able to adopt her, she's so cute.
