"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Remember cute little Vera and sweet Danil? They BOTH having families! God is good, and its so amazing to see these kiddo's that we came to love while there find their families.

But again I am burdened. There is a little sweetie that we seen every single day at the baby house. She had a family, but for one reason or another they couldn't continue, so she's again waiting for her family. I can't disclose her real name, but her pseudo name is 'Willow' on Reeces Rainbow.

Isn't she just the cutest? She was born with FAS and just turned 2yrs old. When we were there, she was lucky enough to have a 'big sister' through a program the baby house sponsors. When they would walk past us in the hallway, she would use her little arm to cover her face until she got past us, then turn around and she'd smile at us. Just adorable. She's a petite little girl, and her big sister would bring books to their visits. We could hear them reading, she was saying words in Russian, she was active, talking, smiling, and just a love.

You can find this sweet girl here on Reece's Rainbow. http://reecesrainbow.org/willow1901
Even if you can't adopt right now, consider making a donation to a child's grant fund. Or you can click the little facebook button below their pictures to share them on facebook. Or advocate on your blogs! You just never know when a child's mom may see their childs' picture. :)
