Reece’s Rainbow has changed my family’s life! Because of this wonderful organization, we found our beautiful Ukrainian daughter, and our family is significantly improved by her presence. We felt supported every step of the adoption process, and made life long friends along the way, as well. I’m so thankful for this organization, and the work they’re doing for orphans with special needs around the world!

We love Reece’s Rainbow! Both of our youngest children have Down syndrome and were adopted from Taiwan. The first one was finalized in February of 2013 and our second one in August 2018. Reece’s Rainbow played a big part in helping us raise the funds needed to pay for the process to bring them home. They handle themselves kindly and professionally and have a heart for special needs adoption.

We are so thankful for Reece's Rainbow! We found eight of our children with the help of Reece's Rainbow. They were such a great help to us in getting them home as well. Everyone should search their pages and let God open their heart to a waiting child.

We found three of our children on Reece's Rainbow! All three of our babes have special needs and all three were destined to spend the rest of their lives in institutes in their country. We are grateful for an organization that works to find special needs children and be their voice!

Our family is so so grateful for Reece’s Rainbow! We added six children in 2 1/2 years from three different countries! It would have been impossible for us without RR. The cost to adopt overseas is huge but with RR we had hope:) The cost isn’t the only thing we’ve gained though; The RR community has become family to us! We celebrate together, share frustrations as well as joys, advocate, and mourn together. This experience has been life changing because of RR!

Without Reece's Rainbow's advocating for the orphaned and pointing me in the right direction to her going, I wouldn't have my amazing, Ukrainian born daughter today!

After advocating for the children of Reece's Rainbow for many years, my husband and I jumped on board and adopted two disabled from Eastern Europe last year. Both boys were wasting away in an institution, weighing just 33lbs at age 11. Thanks to Reece's Rainbow, we were able to raise the money to bring them home AND they both received huge adoption grants !! Without RR, I don't believe this would have been possible ! They are truly an amazing organization, who do everything possible to help these kids find their families AND help those families bring them home !!

Reece's Rainbow helped us find and bring home our precious daughter!! Through their network of families, their grants, and their advocacy, we now have a community of support that helped not only during, but now after our adoption process. Without Reece's Rainbow we would never have found our little girl who has been a blessing to our lives since the moment we met her

Reece's Rainbow has been essential to us. We found our son through them. Not only did they walk us through the steps before we even contacted an agency, quickly responding to all of our questions, they helped us raise the funds to complete our adoption. We are so thankful for everyone with Reece's Rainbow and all of their hard work getting children's faces seen and supporting parents who say "yes."

We have followed Reece’s Rainbow since 2010 or 2011. Now we have the pleasure of using their services as we bring a little one with special needs into our family. I advocate for them whenever I can. What they are doing is unique and so important!
