Review for Reece's Rainbow | Special Needs Adoption Support, Combined Locks, WI, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was once a fan of Reeces Rainbows. I was even matched with a boy on theirphotolisting site. I raised $1000 to his FSP, did all of the homestudy paperwork and even all of the older child adoption paperwork! When the agency submitted my paperwork, they found out the childs picture had been plucked of a regional fost/adopt site and he was not even legally free for adoption. reeces Rainbows stated that they would redistribute this childs FSP (which had a substanotal amount raised by other people as well) to anyone I wished. The money was not transferred. It just disappeared. I foind out through this process that this photolisting is completely illegal, many of the children are not available for adoption, yet funds are raised for them that sit in phony FSPs. unethical and illegal!

Role:  Client Served

False. 1) RR advocates and fundraises for children who are legally eligible for international adoption. There is no benefit to anyone to list children who are not available. This process is fraught with unexpected change, including the availability of a child for numerous possible reasons. 2) Every cent received by RR is fully accounted for and audited. If you have questions about where/why/how/when/to whom those funds you raised were gifted to, please ask.
