A Comfy Seat for Tired Feet Around the World
The Lugabug Family is thrilled to be supporting Reece’s Rainbow. Founded by Andrea Roberts, Reece’s Rainbow was inspired by Andrea’s son Reece who was born with Down syndrome. In her words, “The life we had envisioned for ourselves and our
first-born-son was turned completely upside down, and we felt very much alone. We were so blessed to find help through the Down syndrome Association of Atlanta and Parent-to-Parent of Georgia.”
Since that time, their network of friends continued to grow and Andrea’s outreach and support to other families with Down syndrome children strengthened. Reeces’s Rainbow started in 2004 as an outreach program serving new families with Down syndrome in Atlanta, Georgia. Since then the program expanded to include promoting the international adoption of children with Down syndrome. By raising money to offer adoption grants on waiting children, they are able to give adoptive families the extra financial help they need to bring a child with Down syndrome home from a difficult existence in overseas orphanages.
By donating a Lugabug to families traveling to meet and bring home their newest members, we hope to make their voyage just a bit easier. Helping to keep their smallest members who may be traveling with them close at hand and making navigating the airports easier for the adopting families, Lugabug will be there every step of the way! We can’t wait to share the incredible stories of these loving families!
“The mission of Reece’s Rainbow is to advocate and find families for orphans with Down syndrome and other special needs by raising funds for adoption grants and promoting awareness through an online community, media communications, and other events.” - Andrea Roberts, Executive Director
