Orphans with Arthrogryposis

There are kids with Arthrogryposis all over the world who wait for a family to call their own. Every child should have a Mama and Papa to love them. Sadly many kids will never know the love of a family as they will live out their shortened lives in institutions. The children posted here are from Reecesrainbow.com If you can't adopt, you can donate to their grants on reecesrainbow.com Don't leave them to die in institutions.

Giveaway for Victoria and Igor!

As of April 24th Igor has $1,832.70 in his account and Victoria has $2,301.10 in her account!

Obviously we here at Bring Hope to 12 in 2012 love our Victoria and Igor (who we call Joshy). We want to see these two kiddos in families. (They do not have to be adopted together.) We want them to be rescued from the institution they are both in together. We want to see them get good medical attention (like the dentist!) We want to see them without shaved heads! Mostly we just want them to finally experience the love of parents. And in order to do any of that it's going to cost--for us, money; for the parents who eventually will choose these children, everything.

Not every suitable, loving home has thousands of dollars lying around to adopt a child. These kids are precious and deserve as much love and medical attention as any other child, but many just cannot do it without our help. But there's hope! Many generous people have recently stepped forward and put over $3,000 towards these kids' rescue. It is appreciated!

Our goal is $5,000 per child, and we only have six more days to reach it. We know of families who are interested in these children but cannot afford it. $5,000 in both their accounts would go a long way to help families considering adoption make it over the hump.

We put our request for help out there and had a great response from people who love these two little orphans across the ocean. We finally have enough to start our very first Bring Hope giveaway!

Beautiful handmade orphan's quilt - $45.00 value
This quilt is a bit of a mascot for us. It's been through three giveaways for orphans, but the winners always have  hearts for orphans and pass it forward. It's never been used. The picture does NOT do it justice. We love our mascot quilt and hope it goes to a good home. (Note: Victoria and Igor are not in Africa. :))

American Sign Language cardboard books for kids.

Lastly there will be 3 Pay It Forward winners. These winners will choose a waiting child from Reece's Rainbow's waiting child listing. These children all have special needs and wait for families in baby houses that frankly don't meet the standards for day cares here in the US. The winners will choose one child each and a $25 donation will be sent to their grant funds. These children will also be featured on this blog to spread awareness.

Okay got all that? Ready... set... go! Happy playing!
