This Season of Giving

jamesdec20063.jpgI recently came across Reece’s Rainbow, an organization that helps bring together orphaned children with Down Syndrome and families looking to adopt. Although I can’t endorse them without also saying that I find some aspects of the programs infuriating (like some of the religious and marriage requirements), I feel that, in the end, they do provide an invaluable service for children like Sophia. Be warned, the website is full of adorable children, like James here, with heart wrenching stories all looking for a home.

If this should put you in the giving spirit, I have added several links to other organizations that I think are doing amazing things under the “Giving Back” link section on the right. Happy Holidays! 🙂

(Also, for those of you interested in such things, I have added a few photos to my sorely neglected photo blog. I am finally getting back into the shooting groove and hope to update it more frequently.)


  1. I see a clip in Sophia’s hair today. I can’t wait to start styling it.
