Triple whammy

These 8 boys listed on Reece's Rainbow face a triple whammy - they are older, they have zero in their grants, and they don't have a photo in their profile. They get passed over more than most - with no picture to look at, there seems to be no point in even reading their profile. Who wants to choose a child in a photo listing if there isn't even a photo ? Who wants to donate to a faceless child ? How about you ??

Caesar - Boy, DOB: June 03, 2004

Caesar currently lives in foster care. He is diagnosed with developmental delays and may also have symptoms of Autism. He is described as kindhearted and does not bully the other children.

Erik - Boy, born 3/29/04

An incredibly handsome and charming boy who is seven years old, physically healthy and diagnosed with moderate mental retardation. This little guy is quite independent in self care areas and enjoys eating and playing with others. He lived with his birth family for the first three years of his life, currently resides in an institution and receives speech and occupational therapy. He loves music and books and enjoys the computer. His adorable face makes him a favorite of his caregivers who report him to be popular with his classmates. It is felt that he would make more progress in learning and development in a family setting with consistent care. Resilience is the word to describe this little boy who grieved hard for his biological family and who now longs for a family to love him as their own.

Terry - Boy, born 4/23/04

An eight year old who loves classical music! What a sweetheart. This little boy loves music and likes to shake a maracas! He enjoys his caregivers and is described as a peaceful boy who is a "people person". His medical history is significant for quadriplegic cerebral palsy, he is fed by gastrostomy tube, has seizures and severe developmental delays. His resilient character has helped him to survive a variety of different kinds of physical and mental challenges since his birth. He is in need of a strong and committed forever family who would be willing to embrace and open their hearts to the unknowns in his future. With the support of a family and various health professionals he would indeed flourish.
