He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126:6

Matching Grant Opportunity for Karina!

I am reposting the following from another blog.  I posted about Karina a few weeks ago on a Waiting Child Wednesday post.  She is one of my favorites and needs parents so badly.  Please donate if you can.  Every little bit will get her closer to her family!



It is with extreme excitement that I can share with you that due to donors who wish to remain anonymous I can announce that there is now a $1500 matching grant available for my princess Karina.

Karina is a 2.5 year old little girl. She has Crouzon syndrome, skeletal abnormalities, a heart condition, cleft hard palate and other medical conditions ( I will update you with more about her medical status if and when it becomes available).
She needs our help. Her health is fragile. She desperately needs a family. If we can meet this matching grant she will have enough money in her fund to move to the "Sizable Grants" page on Reece's Rainbow.

Here is how this will work. If you want to help go to this link and click donate. The payment will be processed through paypal but you don't need an account to give.


Or you can write a cheque with "Karina December 2009" on the memo line to:
Reece's Rainbow
PO Box 4024
Gaithersburg, MD 20885

When you write a cheque Reece's Rainbow doesn't have to pay the pay pal fees so more money goes to Karina!

All donations are tax deductible for Canadians and Americans.

As of today her grant has $537.03. If her grant climbs $1500 by Labour Day (September 3) she will receive an additional $1500 from generous donors!

So the magic number is $2037.03

If we can hit this by Labour Day $1500 more will be added to her grant and she will have $3537.03 !!

I KNOW if we all work together we can make this happen. God is moving for Karina! Please pray for donors to come forward. Share on facebook. Donate. Do a garage or bake sale or just sell something on Craigslist.

Do you see the words on her pajama? "My Daddy Rocks". Can we please act quickly to hit this magic number of $2037.03 so that we can get her a that much closer to finding a Daddy (and a Mommy too!)?


  1. Karina is one of my favorites, too, but I haven't been able to find her on the RR site. in fact, tonight I still can't (the link does not show her). Is she still there, but I'm just missing her?

    1. Connie,

      She is no longer available. Her country has specific requirements for kids to be listed for adoption under the age of 5. Apparently her special needs were not severe enough (!) to qualify. She will be available again in 2014. Please, please pray that an exception will be made for her.
