Two Wonderful Boys Are in Need of Adoption | Dec, 2022




Elon – Age 7 – Eastern Europe – Arthrogryposis (delays in development)
Elon walks independently. He feeds himself and cleans up after his meals. He does not talk at this time, but understands what is said to him and follows simple instructions. He responds to his name. He interacts appropriately with adults and with other children. He attends to tasks and works well 1:1 and in a small group.





Ned – Age 3 – Eastern Europe – Cerebral Palsy, Hydrocephalus (delays in development)
Ned lived in an orphanage for the first 2.5 years of his life. When he entered foster care, he could not sit, stand, or make any sounds for any form of communication. He has made a large amount of progress in just one year with the help of multiple specialists and his foster family. He runs, climbs stairs with help, rides a scooter, and plays. Ned recognizes animals and knows their places when arranging a puzzle. He plays with other children, preferring the older ones and copying their actions. He loves music and musical toys, and sometimes dances. He responds to his name, follows directions, is well-intentioned, does not get angry, and is not aggressive. Ned pronounces various sounds and syllables, however, his main form of communication is related to taking the hand of a familiar adult and bringing them to the object he wants.


Elon and Ned live in a country in Eastern Europe with adoption requirements. If you’d like more information please contact:
Reece’s Rainbow, P.O. Box 146, Combined Locks, WI 54113 (240)780–2120
