Tonight I’m here to show you some very special and super adorable Asian orphans. Inspired by the TLC’s show “The Little Couple” . I (Kaitlyn) am a HUGE fan of that show! I’ve had a blast watching their adoption journey. The couple both have dwarfism and adopted a boy from China who also has dwarfism. He’s is absolutely precious! I feel like the couple really have inspired families and other couples to adopt. Their adopted, one and only son, is named William but they call him Will. William’s cuteness inspired me to get online tonight and write a post spotlighting orphans listed on Reece’s Rainbow. (You can watch “The Little Couple on TLC on Tuesday @ 10 P.M. east coast time.)
This handsome little guy likes to giggle when he plays. He was found outside a hotel gate when he was 6 months old. He is able to walk holding an adults hand and knows simple words, but has difficulty with correct sound production.
Yule is an outgoing little guy who likes to play with other children and will share his toys.He likes to play with cars and blocks and loves to listen to music.His caretakers describe him as an unforgettable good child and hope he finds a family soon. Are you ready to snuggle or play cars with this sweet little boy?

Alan just turned three years old, and although he can stand by himself and crawl all over the furniture, he is not quite yet able to walk. His foster father has been taking him on tricycle rides to strengthen his legs and improve his balance. Alan seems to be enjoying himself immensely!
Alan is speaking some family words such as “mama,”, “uncle,” and “sister” and is learning his colors and how to build a tower. Also, Alan can turn the pages of a book and is quite curious. Based on our reports, we can just imagine this handsome little guy snuggling on the lap of a mom or dad of his very own and read book after book. He will surely be a happy addition to some very lucky family!

Down syndrome, congenital heart defect
Kent is an adorable baby boy who is just 1 year old! He came into care when he was 4 months old, and they began working with him immediately to strengthen his muscles. Kent has Down syndrome, and a VSD (6mm) with left atrium enlargement. He may require a surgical procedure to plug the ASD. Kent’s development is delayed, as would be expected. When he turned 1 year old, he was not yet sitting alone, or crawling. He will need more time, and attention, before he masters these milestones.
Kent is a precious baby boy. He is very alert, and very engaging. His receptive language is very good, and he is beginning to make sounds to communicate with the nannies. His favorite activity is listening to music and being hugged. I cannot argue with that! Kent needs a family to love him, and help him reach his full potential. This sweet boy is waiting for you!

postoperative hydrocephalus, postoperative meningocele (spina bifida), optic nerve atrophy, Cerebral palsy
At the first sight, we were impressed by her black eyes. Her eyes were big and black, which seemed to talk. As she grew up, we found her hair was beautiful, black and soft. Till now we do not cut her hair. The caretaker likes dressing her and do various hair style for her.
She received the surgery of meningocele and hydrocephalus. Now she is diagnosed as cerebral palsy and optic nerve atrophy. Her motion ability is poor and limbs are not powerful. She can turn over, can lie on the stomach, but can not sit. Additionally her mental development is delayed. She can not speak, just makes some unconscious sounds, she seems to dislike toys and not sensitive to the sounds. Now she can eat the fixed food, mainly vegetable, meat, egg, noodles, oatmeal, porridge, rice, etc. She also likes fruits. She rarely has illness. She is slight, and shorter than other children of her age.
Though she has lots of disadvantages, she is still a lovely and happy baby. She likes smiling, especially when someone is talking with her and teasing her. When someone is hugging her, she is quiet and listening to adults’ talk, sometimes she touches the person’s face. She likes noisy, always turns her head to the sounds. When no one plays with her, she will be upset and call unhappily.
Though she is a disabled child, she is lovely as other healthy child. She has the same feeling, desires to be loved and cared. We hope she would grow up healthily and happily and she would have a family with warm and love. We believe she can adapt new place and bring happiness to the family. Bless Sarea! Wish she can find her parents soon and have a family. Wish she is peaceful all her life.

anophthalmia, developmental delays
Alec is a beautiful darling little boy. He just celebrated his second birthday and is working really hard to catch up with his peers on development milestones. Alec loves sitting in his baby walker, as he still needs support to sit up, and looking at the different toys on the activity functions. He also has a special toy that can be worn like a glove, as his grip is not strong yet. Alec is slowly learning to tolerate more textures in his feeding, and is at present concentrating on soft apple puree. He still needs support for his feeding with a feeding tube. Alec is a cheerful little boy with a bright smile. His condition of anophthalmia is commonly corrected with a prosthetic eye. Alec continues to make progress in his development. However there is a possibility that he will have long term delays. Alec needs the love and support of a family to reach his full potential.
For more information, photos, or questions about Alec, please contact Nathalie.
