Many have heard of the Reece's Rainbow orphan ministry. Their focus is on helping international orphans with special needs find good, loving homes. Many of these children would face almost certain death in mental institutions after they reach four years of age. When these children are adopted by loving families, their lives are literally saved. One of my friends adopted several children through Reece's Rainbow. I have seen firsthand not only what it takes to adopt even one of these children (alot of love and commitment, and unfortunately alot of money too), but I have also seen the difference a loving family makes for these children.
The blog With Love To Share is having a giveaway to raise funds for their upcoming adoption of an HIV+ orphan. They are giving away an American Girl Doll of the winner's choice. To enter, hop on over to their blog and make a donation of $10 for one entry, or $25 for three entries. Even if you don't win, you will be helping to save the life of a child. The giveaway is open through September 15th.
