Abandoned at 6 years old... | Wesley - Reece's Rainbow Waiting Child

Imagine that you are 6 years old...

You probably think you are pretty "big"...

You feel like you are growing up...

But you still love to play with your friends...

Your biggest stresses are when your brother takes your toy...

Or the neighbor boy calls you names...

Or you get teased at school...

But other than that life is good!

When mealtime comes the food is always there...

You always have clothes to wear...

And a warm bed to sleep in...

You don't have to worry about any of the "big" stuff like rent, income, or bills the adults have to worry about...

Your parents have you covered!

At least that's how it's supposed to be...

Meet Wesley...

At SIX years old he was ABANDONED...

Imagine how scary that must have been!

I don't know whether he was dropped off at an orphanage or just put out on the street or left at a train station...

But whatever the case it must have been VERY scary...

I'm hungry...


Where can I find some food?

It's cold...

Where shall I sleep?

All I see are strangers...

Who can help me?

Why didn't they want me?

Does the color of my skin...


Or the fact that I can't see well...

Make me less lovable?

Did I embarrass them because I don't look like the rest of the family?

I have a heart and feelings just like everyone else...

How is a little boy supposed to make it on his own?

I don't know what to do!

I need someone to guide me...

Someone to love me...

Someone to show me how to be a grownup...

And give me time to be a child...


At this time sweet Wesley is being cared for...

He enjoys playing with the other kids where he lives...

But he doesn't have a family of his own...

It's been nearly 7 years since he was abandoned...

He was listed for adoption 5 years ago...

But still he waits...

In August he will be 13 years old....

That means he has just over a year to be adopted...

When he turns 14 it will be too late according to his country's rules...

But we can't let this sweet boy grow up thinking he is unlovable...

We can't let him live out his life alone!

In his country he will not be accepted because he looks different than the other people...


It is very sad!

He has so much potential!

He could go to college...

He could get a job...

He could be whatever he'd like to be...

If he has someone to believe in him...

Someone to guide him...

To teach him how to be a successful adult!

He could be a neighbor...

He could be a friend...

He could be a cousin...

He could be a grandson...

He could be a brother...

He could be YOUR son!


Please consider Wesley!

Will you be the one to give him a chance?

Will you be the one to show him how valuable he is?

Will you be the one to tell him he'll always belong to your family...

That your family will be HIS family FOREVER?
