Save Maria, In Memory of Chrissie!

Click HERE to see Princess Maria! 

Thank YOU for helping save Maria's life.  Those of you who donated to Reece's Rainbow in memory of Chrissie made it possible for Maria to have a $2460 grant!  Please be praying for a wonderful forever family for sweet Maria!

Maria is in Serbia (Chrissie's home country).  She has Down Syndrome.  She is of Roma heritage.  Unfortunately, these facts are working against Maria in her home country, where people view people with Down Syndrome as being evil or cursed.  The Serbian culture does not embrace those of Roma decent either, so Maria is being tossed aside like a piece of trash, not a valuable human life who should be cherished as the precious child of God that He intends her to be!!! 

Despite being discarded and not valued, Maria has the most precious smile on her face.  Her photo reminds me of our Princess Chrissie's orphanage photo where Chrissie was standing in her crib (see her photo below), although Maria's orphanage smile is much bigger than Chrissie's.  I can't even imagine how much Maria would thrive with a forever family who would show her how precious and valued she really is, fearfully and wonderfully created in the image of God Himself.

Please help me advocate for Maria and keep her in your prayers!
