All, Mother's Day is coming up very soon, only 10 days from now on Sunday, May 10th!! Our Mother's Day Gift Sponsorship Program is a beautiful and meaningful way to celebrate your own motherhood, that of a friend, or even your own mother, aunt, sister, or grandmother. Tell your husbands that you'd rather sponsor a child's adoption than have ANOTHER bottle of body lotion! :))
If anyone is interested in making a donation in honor of their mother or any other mother you know, please visit www.reecesrainbow.com/mothersday2008.htm A special Mother's Day page has been set up showcasing some of our most "at risk" children who could really use our collective help to earn grant funds, which will in turn, help them find a "forever family"! Many of our at risk children were able to benefit from our recent large gift, but many others were not.
All gift donations for Mother's Day MUST be made by this Monday, May 5th.
If you are considering a sponsorship but would like multiple gift cards sent to various mothers, you can make one donation and let me know exactly where you want the cards sent!
Thank you, and God bless! Mother's Day is a perfect time to celebrate the joy of a forever family for our waiting children with Down syndrome. It is also an important time to reflect on the suffering of each of these children, as they have never known a mother of their own. Let's make 2009 the year they ALL get to celebrate Mother's Day, by being home with their own new adoptive mothers!
