The truth about 50% of the orphan population||Reece's Rainbow waiting child

This statistic blows my mind.  Just think about it for a minute.

And before you brush it off as 'sad' please meet Devon.  He is an 11 year old orphan living in Eastern Europe.  He has been listed for adoption for so very long.  He is one of those kids who I have watched grow up right before my eyes.  One of those kids I've posted about before here and there.  One of those kids with very little information and an old blurry picture. 

And if a family doesn't step up to adopt him in the next 4 years he will become apart of that statistic.  His chances are slim.  At age 16 he will age out of his orphanage and no longer be adoptable.  He will be on his own with no family or support. He will become a part of the statistic.

The thing is, Devon has more then one blurry picture now.  And we just found out we actually have another picture of him available!  It was a crazy miss-communication but Devon actually had two profiles listed (which means that he had an extra picture right in front of our eyes!)!  The two profiles have now been combined, because he truly is only one little boy!

Meet this handsome Love.  Devon.

Say a prayer for him would you?  That he would be protected.  Emotionally.  Physically.  Spiritually.  And that most of all a family would step up to adopt him.  To give him the love and protection he deserves.

You can find more info on him and share his profile here: reecesrainbow.org/3459/devon2803
