Adopting Babies with Down’s Syndrome

Submitted by Angie Sat 02/20/2010

I have a confession to make. I read People magazine. Not every week, but at least once a month. I don’t subscribe to it, but I do pick it up at the store every once in awhile. I don’t have a good excuse, except that it’s a great escape. And I am so totally considering writing it off on my taxes, as it often mentions infertility battles of the rich and famous. After all, there’s Nicole and Celine and J-Lo and the pregnant dude on baby #3… Anyway, I digress because I actually found some useful information this week. Reece’s Rainbow is a registered 501(c)3 charity which promotes and facilitates the international adoption and rescue of children with Down syndrome in particular. We are not an adoption agency, we are only a connecting point for these children to their “forever families”. In 2006, the program expanded to include promoting the international adoption of children with Down syndrome. By raising money to offer adoption grants on waiting children, we are able to give adoptive families the extra financial help they need to bring a child with Down syndrome home from a miserable existence in overseas orphanages. Our Sponsorship Program provides a unique opportunity for anonymous donors to contribute to the adoption journey of our families. These children are viewed as outcasts with no ability to learn or be functional members of society. They languish in mental institutions, hidden away from the world in shame. Even if you are not able to adopt a child at this time, you truly can change the course of a child’s life by helping adoptive families afford the costs of international adoption. There are also several other agencies you can contact, such as and to seek and/or place a child with Down syndrome for adoption

I really have a big heart to those who are in need especially children.My heart seem to crush into pieces every time I heard about these kind of issues.It’s indeed difficult to live without your parents and considering the fact that you are under the protection of someone who treats you so badly.Just like the news about the two adopted children of Renee Bowman,she killed them and placed their bodies in the freezer for almost a year until found out by the police.Well, Renee Bowman won’t be passing go, won’t be collecting anything, and I hope she gets the chair. She killed her children and hung their corpses in the freezer – I don’t understand exactly how a person can even begin to contemplate doing that. She won’t have to worry about debt survival or payday loans now – she’s only going to have to worry about either getting the death penalty or getting shanked in the showers. (I don’t know if DC has capital punishment, or if that automatically becomes a federal offense.) It’s in the courts’ hands now, but…that is a good thing, because mob justice isn’t a good idea either.

Adopting a baby with Down’s syndrome is becoming more commonplace. In some regions, there are even waiting lists for families who want to adopt a child with Down Syndrome. Still, there’s a demand for parents who are willing and able to undertake this great responsibility.
