Emily was adopted in December 2012 from Krasnoyarsk, Russia, a city in southern Siberia. She loves Curious George, Doc McStuffins, fruit snacks, green beans and our cat, Luna. Emily loves singing and dancing, gives great hugs, loves to ride the school bus and is the silliest little girl you'll ever meet. Emily is smart, creative, has a great imagination, is mischievous, has a GREAT laugh, and also has Down syndrome. Her mother loves lobsters so Emily made this beautiful drawing for her and now you can show your support with a purchase today!

Hopefully you know that we have partnered up with Reece's Rainbow this time around. We are going to introduce you to Laurel, a wonderful little girl that was fortunate enough to be adopted. But there are so many other children with Down Syndrome that need help out there and each one has a bright inner sunshine they want to share. Please after you learn more about Laurel, check out Reece's Rainbow for stories about the little ones that need your help. 50% of the proceeds from every item you purchase helps Reece's Rainbow raise funds for the adoption of another soon to be fortunate child.

Laurel was adopted from Ukraine in 2009. She was born 3 months premature and deaf. She now has Cochlear Implants which have helped her to be able to hear and speak rather well thanks to God along with many years of speech and language therapy. Laurel is home schooled and she is going into the second grade. She has a baby horse named "Rose" who has helped her confidence even more. She loves to play and ride bikes with her brother Noah. One of her favorite songs is "Eye of the Tiger" which is what inspired her drawing. It fits her well because she has been a fighter since the day she was born. We are so thankful we were chosen to be her parents. We know the Lord has great plans for her and that one day, the world will hear her "Roar"!
