Dennis Needs Help!

There is a little guy on the Reece's Rainbow website who just lost his prospective family. His name is Dennis. As a result of his loss, he only has 7 weeks left before he is to be put into an institution. Because of the emergent nature of his situation, Reece's Rainbow is looking for a family that is already USCIS approved. Unfortunately, Dennis is not in good enough health to survive very long in the mental institution.

To view Dennis, go to www.reecesrainbow.org ; click on Waiting Children ; then click on Most At Risk Children Ages 3-5. Dennis is in Orphange (9). Warning: his picture is horrible. The blue spots all over his body are a medicine used often in the orphanages for dry skin. (Natalie had it all over her when we adopted her from Russia, and it took forever to wear off.)

Dennis is in a poorer orphanage that does not provide therapy, so he is likely very behind. In addition, he has Pulmonary Artery Stenosis that will need to be followed by a pediatric cardiologist and Rickets (which means he is in desperate need of some sunshine---Natalie had this too).

Please join us in praying for Dennis to find his family. God does not want him to be sent to the mental institution where he will be tied to a bed and left without touch for the rest of his life. He was born with an extra chromosome, but it is not his fault. Dennis has never had a chance at life, and in only seven weeks, his life may be over.

Dennis already has $3,231.00 in his adoption fund that will go toward the $20,000.00 cost.

In speaking about the poor, the hungry, the orphans and the sick, Mother Teresa said:
"Each one of them is Jesus in disguise."

"Whatever you do for the least of these......you do it for Me." (Jesus)

  1. No children show up on the At Risk page for me.

  2. Once you go to the Most At Risk Children Age 3-5 years, click on "Waiting Children" and they will pop up. There are many. You can't miss Dennis---"I Lost My Family" is highlighted in red beside his picture. So sad.
