Ella never ceases to amaze me. Everyday she learns new skills and brings joy to everyone she meets.
Despite what the majority of society may believe, even though she has Down Syndrome, she lives a full and beautiful life.
But there are other places in the world where children born with Down Syndrome are rejected and left to die in understaffed, underfunded orphanages and institutions. They are tied to cribs, uncared for, unloved and neglected.
Many of them have health conditions which jeopardize their lives and yet can be easily corrected with a simple procedure or basic medical attention.
These are children just like Ella. And my heart breaks as I picture them day in and day out without a mother or a father to give them the most basic of human needs. Love.
Reece’s Rainbow is an organization which helps forever families find these children. But these children cannot be freed without a ransom and each adoption costs tens of thousands of dollars.
This Christmas give the gift of a family. Jakob is a baby boy who is just 7 months old and has congenital heart disease. With early intervention and proper medical care, however, he could thrive just like Ella.
Not only will you be giving the gift of a family but you will also get a chance to win an itunes gift card.
There are three cards to win, each valuing $30.
You must donate to Jakob to get an entry, and after that there are three more ways to win.
