Faith to Move a Mountain

In November of 2011, I started this blog as a sort of journal to chronicle the events of our son Quinton's adoption. Quinton is a little boy who was born with an extra special something. Quinton has down syndrome and was given up at birth by his parents because he has down syndrome. His birth parents must not have had any idea what a blessing he would be or I am sure they would not have given him up. Unfortunately in Eastern Europe (Quinton is from Ukraine) people with disabilities are not accepted in society and at the age of 4-6, they are sent to adult mental institutions where most of them die :( Although it breaks my heart that his parents have missed out on such a joyful little boy, God has used this unfortunate situation to bless us with a gift greater than I could have ever imagined: the gift of our first child. If you ever considered adoption-do it! Don't let money deter you. God provided over $20,000 for us to adopt Quinton. We were not fully funded until 50 minutes before we boarded our plane to Ukraine. If you have never considered adoption, go back to the beginning of this blog and read. You will see what a blessing adoption really is. Many people tell us that we are angels for rescuing Quinton, but the honest truth is this: Quinton has given me far more that I will ever be able to give him. He is my little miracle, my silly bug, my baby boy, my love. HE IS MY LIFE!

  6. Carol and Brian,
    My name is Ashley, and I have a little sister with Down syndrome. I have known about Reece's Rainbow for a long time, and my family personally fell in love with Quinton. My parents were highly considering adopting him, but then short after, we found out that he had found a family! He still holds a very special place in all of our hearts. I am so happy for him <3 Anyway, me and 3 of my friends(who also have family members with Ds) have an organization for the kiddos on Reece's Rainbow called " love the unloved."
    We just offically launched yesterday, and we are sponsoring 2 children this month. One that is on the waiting list, and one that has already found a family. Well, we have chosen Quinton to be our "found" baby! If that's not ok, then let us know! If you want to check out our post about it, click here:
    I'm so happy for all 3 of you!
    Love, Ashley <3
