$100k in Grants Just Sitting There

Andrea at Reece's Rainbow has asked us (RR families) to spread the word about the children with significant grants  (<-- click here) to be used for adoption expenses. This is money donated by individuals to these children's grants in the hope that it will help them find families quicker.  Adoption is not cheap but saving the life of a child and giving them a family of their own is priceless!

Andrea has challenged us to pick a child to advocate for and I'm choosing Vika.  She's a beautiful little girl in Russia with $5018 in her grant!  Please help her find a home before she is transferred to the mental asylum!!  She is considered "high risk" since she turned 5 in May.  Her caregivers say this about her (translated): "a lovely little girl, clockwork, energetic, affectionate and sociable, and in general, little girl, whose place at home, at the table with mom and dad, where you can happily talk down, sitting on a high chair, twist and tuck into cakes with apples".  She is just a doll (looks like she's enjoying a cracker!) Could you be her mom or dad?  Would you help her find a family?

Here is information about her region:

  • 2 trips
  • 1st trip, Both parents for 5-7 days
  • Wait 2-3 months for court
  • Both parents travel for 2nd trip, one can leave after 4 days, the other waits 10-25 days longer (depending on if the 10 day grace period is waived)
  • No family size restrictions
  • Both parents must be younger than 60 years
  • Total program fees under $30k (travel and hotel varies depending on
    accommodations requested and time of year.)
  • Fee includes a $1000 orphanage donation
  • Married couples and single mothers may apply
