Newly Listed

Many, many newly listed children on Reece's Rainbow this week.  I don't know if records in Eastern Europe are being updated right now in preparation for the new academic year.  Apparently, this is a busy season for children getting transferred from relatively comfortable "Baby Houses" to more impersonal orphanages and institutions.

This little girl is in Lithuania, where travel is pretty straightforward.  Two trips, the first one is about one week for both parents, and for the second trip (about 2 weeks) only one parent must travel.  She has been getting medical treatment, including surgery, for her heart condition, and she appears to be developing really well for an institutionalized child with Down syndrome.  She just turned 5 years old.  Isn't she adorable?  I hope someone scoops her up soon!

  1. Her serious expression is absolutely adorable. And she's dressing and undressing herself, AND only needs diapers at night? Smart, smart girl!
