Her name is Gracelynn – it’s not her real name but it is the name we know her by. She is an orphan and she is waiting for her forever family. She is also one of the children who are on this year’s Reece’s Rainbow’s Angel Tree.
She just turned 11 years old and has such a sparkle in her eyes! Why is she an orphan? We are not sure but it is likely that her Down Syndrome has something to do with it. In her country, children with Down Syndrome are looked upon as unable to live up to anything. It is very sad but true.
However, this Christmas season Gracelynn has a Christmas Angel Tree Warrior loving her, rooting for her and getting the word out there that Gracelynn is in need of a family. Her warrior is also working hard to raise that US$1000 for her as part of the Angel Tree efforts.
Her Warrior is Stephanie and she blogs over at Daily Smiles. Please go over and read what she has been saying about sweet Gracelynn. You can also help by giving a little towards Gracelynn‘s adoption grant. For this Christmas season only, when you give US$35 and above, you will receive a lovely Christmas ornament with Gracelynn‘s photo on it. Click on her name or picture to get to her profile page and give.
Of course, you can also help by praying for Gracelynn and for her forever family to step forwards. Another way to help is to share Gracelynn‘s story with as many as you can.
PS: Stephanie has also written about our Jasper (Asia) – read that post here.
