Fundraising match!!

OK, the story that will knock your socks off (It sure did mine!!) Last night I received an email from an amazing woman. She shared her story with me that she had also been affected by Sam's story, in the same way it did me. As in, she felt like she was looking at her son on the screen! He would have been a perfect fit for her family, brothers that also played soccer. But it was not meant to be for them. I cried reading her email, because I can't imagine how hard that was for her, knowing how she felt about him. She loved Sam just like I do. Or does, I should say. Instead of just giving up, and trying to forget about him, she decided to contact me and offer her help. Remember the story about King Solomon and the two women with the baby? Instead of being mad, upset, and feeling hopeless, this woman, M (she wishes to remain anonymous) decided to help. She will match all donations to Sam's FSP (, up to $2000!! Yes, I said $2000! The generosity of M doesn't stop there though! She has ALSO offered to donate a Kindle AND an 8GB iTouch for a giveway! We will start those next week, as soon as the Cricut giveaway ends on Wednesday (at noon). Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for what she is doing. There's no way I could ever repay her for what she is doing. But people are led to do amazing things for Sam. I know it isn't for us, and I wouldn't want it to be. I don't like asking for help for myself, but I don't mind one bit asking for Sam.  If you feel led to help Sam get here, please consider donating. The matching period will end Wednesday, April 4th. All donations made through Reece's Rainbow are tax deductible too!


  1. This could be my story. I loved Samuel the moment I set eyes on him and began exploring the possibility of adopting him, even though we'd never seriously considered adoption before. I'd love to be able to talk to you more about him, perhaps by email. If you like, you can email me at

    I'm a little confused about the donation boxes since there are two of them. I donated a little, but I wanted to be sure I got it into the matching fund, so I put some in both. Is it only the Reece's Rainbow fund that is being matched and the ChipIn box that is for the giveaway? Or are they both being matched? Please help me out here! Thanks!

  2. The FSP on Reece's Rainbow is being matched by a donor. The chip in goes to our paypal, and that's how we keep track of people donating for the giveaways we are doing. It will all come back together at the end, along with the original grant from RR. It does get confusing! Lol I'll email you later tonight!

  3. My heart is happy that Sam has a family coming for him. Thank you for sharing your journey to Sam here with us. Praying for you and your family in the months to come!
