Update on Monroe’s Situation


PLEASE continue to spread the word.   I can’t believe no one has come forward to adopt this adorable boy.

Please note that only married couples under 49 years of age can can adopt Monroe.  Reece’s Rainbow has told me that they have had a lot of inquiries but that they were all from single or older people.  

Urgent need for an adoptive family!

Monroe doesn’t have much time.  He has a $20,000 grant which will pretty much cover his entire adoption!!!!

He has just six weeks to find his forever family before being sent a mental institution where he will spend the rest of his life tied in a crib. 

Please look at his information and pray about whether you have room in your heart and home for this sweet boy.

“Once our eyes are opened, we can’t pretend we don’t know what to do.  God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.”

BOY, Born February 4, 2005


Monroe is a sunshine of a little boy!  He is already 5 and blessed to still be at the baby house.  He needs a family right away!  
From a missionary who visited with him in June 2010:  I met with the doctor in his Groupa House who brought me back to meet him. The Head Doctor wanted me to meet the children who needed equipment. While measuring him for a chair, she explained to me what was more important was that he get a family. He will be traferred in six months to the worst institution, restrained in a crib in a dark room. She broke into tears! Monroe has spastic  cerebral palsy in all four limbs and is globally delayed. He is able to recognize the voices of his careworkers and understand simple directions. However, due to his spasticity he is unable to do much of anything. No speech.  With therapy he can improve but will always have limitations. I measured his head circumfeence and once home will check with a doctor regtarding whether ir not he is microcephalic as well. I will  try to gather more information on him today. His temperament was sweet and his eyes twinkled. He needs a family fast! 
From an adoptive family who visited with him in June 2009:   Monroe has CP.  It appears that he is unable to use his arms and legs and is not sitting up on his own.  He has the most beautiful smile and I don’t think there is much of a cognitive delay.  He loves to be held and his whole face lights up when you come near him.”
*** Monroe has an incredible benefactor who has offered a FULL GRANT of $20,000 for his adoption.   He is facing imminent institutionalization, and will regress quickly once he is transferred.  Families who are qualified (www.reecesrainbow.org/newfamily.html) to adopt internationally and who are approved to adopt a significantly delayed child should contact Andrea for more information.  This is a very fast program and it is very possible to have him home before the end of 2010! ***

  1. Is there anyway to get more information on this child. I have a 2.5 year old with CP and my heart is broken that his little boy would be sent to an institution. I would like to get more information on this child

  2. My heart is breaking for poor little Monroe. How can we learn more about adopting him.

  3. I read this and it breaks my heart. My husband will know in 2-3 months (early – late September) whether he has a stable job. Can you provide an exact institutionalization date and how long approval would take once an intent to adopt was known? We would not qualify financially for consideration at this time but if my husband gets this job- we would! Watching for updates, praying…
    medically trained, and I know the clock is ticking for this angel. We will be watching updates and praying.
