Temple needs a Family for Christmas!

This year, I am a Christmas warrior for a little girl named "Temple" for the Angel Tree Initiative with Reece's Rainbow. In recent blog posts, I have featured families who are adopting children profiled on Reece's Rainbow.

Reece's Rainbow's mission is to advocate and find families for orphans with Down syndrome and other special needs by raising funds for adoption grants and promoting awareness through an online community, media communications, and other events. 

Temple is listed on Reece's Rainbow, but  - unlike the other children I have featured - she does not yet have a forever family coming for her.

There are many families who would love to adopt from overseas, but the high cost can be overwhelming. Temple has a page set up for her where funds can be donated towards the cost of her adoption. The money raised during and after Angel Tree will stay with Temple and help a family to bring her home!

I chose to be a warrior for Temple this year because she is three years old, just like my own daughter. It breaks my heart that while my little ones are likely going to be spoiled this Christmas, she still waits for her forever family.

I absolutely loved the description of "relentless" from her file, I definitely see that personality trait in my children once in a while too!

Her sweet face of course also just drew me right in.

Any donations towards Temple's adoption would be greatly appreciated. If you're looking for a meaningful gift this year; this is it! The money will make a big difference for a little girl and her family. You can donate here

With a donation of $35 USD or more, you will receive a beautiful photo ornament of Temple to hang on your tree. 

Of course, prayer for little Temple is also welcomed and needed just as much! Please pray that she would be well taken care of and that her family would find her soon.

And finally, please share! Share this post or her actual profile here. Temple's family is out there somewhere and we need to spread the word and get her as much exposure as possible! You never know who is looking for her and waiting to see their daughter's face. 

If you think YOU may be Temple's family, please inquire about her! I would love for her to have a family for Christmas. 

Thank you so much, and God Bless!


  1. What a beautiful mission! Such a sweet child. I hope Temple finds her forever family.

  2. So convicting. I will be praying for this sweet girl and others like her. Bless her little heart...
