A Family For Arnold and Introducing Natalie

I don’t know how many of my blog visitors pay attention to my blog sidebar where I feature a precious child who is looking for their forever family. I hope you do!

For several months, sweet Arnold‘s face has been featured there.

Arnold had been on my heart for a long time. Did you know that in some Eastern European countries, many orphans with special needs are transferred to mental institutions at the tender age of 4 or 5 if they haven’t been adopted? It is hard for me to comprehend. Arnold was scheduled for transfer this summer, so I was incredibly excited to see that a family had stepped forward last month to adopt him. My heart still thrills with joy whenever I think of it.


I’d like to introduce you to another precious child named Natalie. Natalie is almost 3 years old.

From the Reece’s Rainbow site:

This little love is said to have a very mild delay — they don’t even consider her as “special needs” at her orphanage, but yet she’ll never find a family in her country due to her Down syndrome diagnosis.

She has some physical delays, but her neuro-psychological development is said to be at age level.

Natalie is an orphanage favorite, and they are hoping to find her a family! They say she is the sweetest girl, kind and friendly.


Even if you aren’t called to adopt a child, there are many things we can do to help these children. We can spread the word, pray for a child or help an adopting family, financially or with our prayers and support. Each child on Reece’s Rainbow has a tax-deductible fund setup to help prospective parents with adoptions costs as they don’t want finances to be an issue holding anyone back from adopting a child.

Thank you for reading about Arnold and Natalie.
