Vote Vote!

First some good news.... Roland has found a family!

He will be such a blessing to them!

In other news, (I can't believe I didn't post this sooner) Reece's Rainbow only has two more days to accumulate votes in order to win $50,000.  If they win, they will put $5,000 in the sponsor accounts of ten waiting children.  This could greatly help these children get adopted.  If you have a facebook account, all you need to do is vote today and tomorrow.  We have no idea of knowing if they are in the lead, so if you are 21 and over please click the link below and submit your vote!


Thank you!

Blankets and Diapers for Oliver (and many more!)

Have you been wanting to do something to help these children that would have immediate results?  But you probably can't travel to Europe, shipping costs are inconceivable, and sending money straight to an international orphanage may not be a good idea.  Right?  Weeell have I got a deal for you. A great opportunity has come up to help Oliver and the orphans he's living with!

The Stout family is in U adopting their sweet boy, and they are prepared to buy and deliver some much needed items to the orphanage.  Winter is coming and the place is in need of blankets, new clothes without holes, diapers, rash cream, etc.  The poor bums of these babies are soaking from the cloth diapers they wear all day and it would be heaven to give them a break with fresh clean diapers to help heal their sores and purple rashes.

What a fantastic opportunity.  They are also using their FSP to collect the money, so when you donate, RR will send you a tax deductible receipt.  Two great things in one!  Imagine what $10 or $20 or even $5 can provide.  Anything to bring comfort to these little ones would be worth it, even for a minute.

For more information and to donate, please visit their blog post here:

Thank you for helping Oliver and many other baby booty's heal!

Awareness Month in Oct

I guess October is the month to be aware of a lot of things.  One of the many is Dwarfism.  Hooray!  This gives me the perfect excuse reason to show more adorable little people in need of families.  Of course Oliver has completely stolen my heart and everyday I pray he finds his miracle family, but these little ones are easily making their way in too:

Sweet Roland.  Roland was born in 2008 and has a type of dwarfism called Robinow Syndrome.  He is just gorgeous! His profile says that he has great gross/fine motor skills and participates with the other children.  More information about this very do-able condition is here: http://www.robinow.org/

Oh my heart...  This little boy is 3 and has Achondroplasia (like us).  Achondroplasia is the most common form of dwarfism.  Please let me know if you are interested in bringing him home so I can pass your inquiry on to our LPA adoption coordinator: kimandronniedavis [at] gmail [dot] com

Sadie.  This precious girl was born in 2005 and has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI).  She is such a beauty and can identify colors and shapes.  More information about OI is here: http://www.oif.org

Yue is 5 years old and appears to have Diastrophic Dysplasia (like Oliver!)  He is a happy little boy that needs a loving family.

This beautiful boy also appears to be Diastrophic.  He is 10 years old and living in a mental institution - even though he's completely cognitive.  He would have so much potential if a mom and dad helped him get out of there and showed him the world. (LPA will also consider giving a grant for him)

What a sweetheart!  This 10 yr old girl has been waiting so long for her momma.  Just imagine her with long beautiful hair.  She also has a $4200 grant to go along with her adoption!

Patrick.  Patrick is 8 and has OI.  He is newly listed on RR and sounds like such a sweetie.  It looks like he's also available to single moms!  Please go take a look at his profile!

This 8 year old is undiagnosed at the moment, but longs to have a family.  He has said that he's happy for the other children who find their parents, but sad that no one ever comes for him.  I believe there is a video available of him as well.


Moses is ready to be found!  I'm unsure of his dwarfism type, though he also has a hearing condition.  Look at his profile - it seems like he's such a smart boy.

Many more of these children who wish for a family can be found at the LPA adoption site below:


Aren't they so easy to love?
Again, if you would like any information on these children and cannot find what you are looking for, please email us at: kimandronniedavis [at] gmail [dot] com so we can get LPA's adoption coordinator to help you.

Diastrophic Dysplasia (DD)

This is the type of dwarfism we think Oliver has.  Naturally, you may be curious about it.  Is it a big deal?  Are they cognitive?  Can they walk?  What does it all mean?

I've pulled some information together in hopes that it may lead to his rescue.  I pray it will ease the worries if [you] or a family have been on the fence about adopting him or any other child with this condition.

This link is a great place to start:


It has tips, medical information and also lets you know what is common, what is fixable, and what may be a challenge that can eventually be overcome.

It also has a link to photos of adults and adorable children with DD. :


Do you see how much potential Oliver could have?  If someone would have just fixed his little club feet he could possibly be walking.  Instead he lays in a crib every single minute, trapped, bored, and succumbing to his bed sores.

And yes, like most types of dwarfism, DDs are cognitively normal.  He is only 5 and he knows he is suffering.

Below are a few people who have this type of dwarfism.  I recommend visiting these links, as you may have heard of one or two before. :

Chris Errera:  An incredible musician and recording artist(Look him up on YouTube.)

Matt Roloff: Wonderful speaker, businessman, and father on Little People Big World

Are your worries fading yet?  One more.

Scooter Patterson: PARALYMPIAN swimmer from Australia

This is why I see so much hope in Oliver, and I hope someone soon does too.
