All, although their personal financial needs must be great, the Patterson family has graciously asked that people interested in honoring and remembering Chrissie consider donating to Reece's Rainbow. A link has been created at their request, and the home page has been updated.

adopted from Serbia in October, 2009
The Reece's Rainbow family grieves the loss of one our little "colors", Chrissie Patterson, who passed away May 19, 2010 from complications of her congenital heart defect. Her adoptive family, Lorraine and Matthew Patterson, gave Chrissie the best 8 months of her life, and she died LOVED and CHERISHED, not alone in an orphanage crib.
We are grateful to the Pattersons for this incredible gift of life they gave her, knowing the risk that she might not survive very long. They stepped forward trusting that Chrissie was in God's hands and here for HIS purpose, no matter what. We have all followed their blog intensely recently, and have witnessed the strong Christian faith of this family during one of their darkest hours. Even now they ask people to wear bright colors to her funeral in celebration of her life.
Their blog and information about Chrissie's memorial service can be viewed here: http://allarepreciousinhissight.blogspot.com/
The family has asked that individuals interested in celebrating Chrissie's life consider donating to Reece's Rainbow in her honor. All donations are tax deductible and will go to our Voice of Hope fund, which makes it possible for Reece's Rainbow to continue serving the waiting orphans in Serbia and 22 other countries around the world. Thank you for your gifts and for your love of Chrissie!! A list of all donors will be shared with the Patterson family in 30 days. (June 21, 2010).
