Benjamin and Bruno: Two Little Boys-Two Different Worlds

Benjamin was born in May 2009 in the U.S.A. with an extra chromosome.

Bruno was born in June 2009 in China with an extra chromosome.

After his hospital stay, Benjamin went home with his mommy and daddy.

After Bruno was born, he went to an orphanage.

Benjamin has a bedroom decorated just for him.

Bruno shares a room with lots of other children.

Benjamin loves to play with balls.

Bruno loves to play with balls.

Benjamin gets daily hugs, kisses and play time with his mommy and daddy.

Bruno is well-liked by the orphanage staff, and he often initiates finding them for attention.

Benjamin hears the words "I love you," every single day.

Bruno may have never heard those words spoken to him.

Benjamin will spend this Christmas surrounded by family members who love him.

Bruno will spend this Christmas at the orphanage.

Benjamin is blessed to have parents who love him and care for him.

Bruno deserves to have parents to love him and care for him.

There are families willing to adopt Bruno, but adoption costs are high. Reece's Rainbow raises grant money for the adoption of children with Down syndrome and other special needs from overseas. Bruno is part of the Christmas Angel Tree fundraiser initiative this year. Shawn and I have signed up to be his Angel Tree Warrior, which means we have committed to trying to raise $1,000 towards the cost of his adoption between now and the end of December. Please follow the link at the top of my blog and make your donation today. Every gift of $35 or more is eligible to receive a Christmas ornament with Bruno's picture on it. This Christmas, lets help make one little boy's dream for a family come true!

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.--James 1:27
