We are so thankful for Reece’s Rainbow! We first heard about Reece’s Rainbow when friends of ours were adopting two separate times. We donated to Reece’s Rainbow to help them bring their daughters Home. Earlier this year, we started the process to adopt a little girl who is on Reece’s Rainbow and have been thankful for the support of everyone with Reece’s Rainbow and the community who has helped us bring our baby home!

Reece's Rainbow is an amazing organization that fosters a community of awareness and support in helping children with special needs be united with families. The organization not only helps families find children, but helps them fundraise within their network of supporters through various types of grants. Our son is a beautiful addition to our family and he wouldn't be with us if it wasn't for Reece's Rainbow and its amazing teamwork of support.

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.

Reece’s Rainbow does incredible work. I have watched dozens of families find each other through their advocacy. The people who work for and support the agency are truly a community. They are also very easy to work with, quick to communicate, and willing to do anything to help a child find their forever home. I love this organization and highly recommend them to anyone looking to support orphaned and vulnerable children.

Years ago when we first thought about adoption we did not feel international adoption was possible for us. Then we saw our daughter listed on Reeces Rainbow. We knew that she was our daughter and if it wasn't for Reeces Rainbow we would never have found her,no would we have thought we could do it if she had not had a grant started. Reeces Rainbow was a blessing to us 3 times as we went back two more times due to their support and advocating.

I found my daughter through Reece's Rainbow. Without this organization, I never would have known of her existence and I never would have fully understood the plight of special needs orphans.

This organization cares deeply for these children and wants nothing but for them to find love in families, not rot away in some orphanage or mental institution (in many countries, children with special needs end up in mental institutions when they are as young as 5).

Everyone that I have interacted with in this organization has been wonderful! That includes the staff, volunteers, and even the donors. A+ organization.

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.

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!

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 !!

We found Reece's Rainbow in a round about way after we had already decided to adopt our daughter with Down syndrome. While on the journey Reece's Rainbow has been wonderful in their support and advocacy. The board members and community are very involved and it is nothing short of a miracle with what they accomplish with so little. I know they do their very best to make sure the bulk of donation dollars go where they need to, the families in the trenches. Thanks Reece's Rainbow for the support.

When I just "happened" upon Reece's Rainbow 6 yrs ago I had no idea the impact it would have on our lives, and the lives of so many others. We now have 2 sons that we would not have had it not been for Reece's Rainbow. Their advocacy for kiddos with Down Syndrome and other special needs have helped many unloved, uncared for, unknown about children find families that now call them sons and daughters and love them unconditionally. And we are one of those families. Thank you RR team for all you do for these precious kiddos.

We found our two sons through Reece's Rainbow. They are a fantastic organization that brings awareness to children who wait for families and raise the funds to help with adoption expenses. International doption costs typically range from $26-36,000. People can donate to a specific child or family through RR and all of their donations are tax deductible. We were literally able to adopt a second son because of these donations. Because of RR and the generous donors, two orphans were able to have a family of their own. Love Reece's Rainbow and the staff that works tirelessly on behalf of orphaned children around the globe!

We found both our sons through Reece's Rainbow in two separate adoptions. Both boys had grant money in their accounts and we received everything we were supposed to. We also were able to raise funds through Reece's Rainbow for our adoptions and again - we received everything in a timely manner. We found RR to be extremely ethical and very honest with us. Reece's Rainbow has helped over 1,000 children find their forever families through advocacy and raising grant money. Without their voice the vast majority of those children would never have been found.

I am currently in China picking up my two boys from orphanages there, with nearly half of the money from our adoption coming from donations to Reece's Rainbow that then came to us, a little over $20,000! We found one of our son's through Reece's Rainbow and one through China's shared list. This organization does everything they can to help parents adopt children with special needs, both through the grants they give and through the services they provide during the process. Their organization has also been invaluable for meeting other parents who have children with special needs and developing relationships that are deep and lasting. Adoption is a very difficult and stressful thing. Reece's Rainbow and the other Reece's Rainbow families literally helped me keep my sanity as we went through this process. I will be sticking with them for years to come as an advocate to help other orphans find homes and if I do ever chose to adopt again, I will be doing it using all the Reece's Rainbow services I can.

We found Reece's Rainbow when we were looking to expand our family. We were interested in a child with special needs to share our happy home with. We found our girl on RR. Or rather she found us!! That beautiful smile jumped off the page and right into our hearts!! Reeces Rainbow helped us throughout our entire adoption process. They were there for any questions no matter how big or small and most importantly, got back to us right away. In a little over a year, we had our daughter home and our biggest thanks goes to RR because without them, we would have never had the funds to adopt our girl. This organization and their wonderful staff has given us one of the best experiences in our lives. One we will cherish forever. And we will cherish our daughter forever.

I traveled with an adopting family to help with their newest addition, and Reece's Rainbow was fantastic. They are a wonderful organization who help both children waiting to be adopted as well as families on the road to adoption. The funds were readily available when we (the adopting family) needed them once we were in country, and they were helpful in many other aspects. As a community they are fabulous as well.

I always know exactly where every penny of my donations are going, they are very transparent about their funding, and that is one reason I so highly recommend them. They do a phenomenal job.
