He's still waiting for a family, and I don't understand why.

He needs a family ohh so badly, why haven't they been found yet?

Maybe it's because of how he looks that everyone is scared away. 

Why can't someone just look past his outward appearance and see a perfect little boy who needs a mommy and daddy? 

I pray that will happen soon, because he can't wait much longer!

Please spread the word about Owen!! Share this post, my Waiting Wednesday post about him, or his Reece's Rainbow profile. Thank you!!

Owen (egxb-3)

Boy, Born December 2007
This darling little boy is waiting for his forever family, and we believe his condition to be one called Saethre-Chotzen Syndrome.  
Also known as Acrocephalosyndyldactyly Type Chotzen or Saethre-Chotzen Syndrome. Chotzen Syndrome is a dominant genetic condition. They have a tower-shaped skull (acrocephaly), fused fingers and/or toes (syndactyly), asymmetric face, widely spaced eyes, droopy eyelid (ptosis), strabismus (crossed or "wall-eyes"), beak-like nose, small upper jaw, and jutting out lower jaw (prognathism).   Some plates in their skull close early.   This is called craniosynostosis.   Often people with Chotzen Syndrome are mildly hard of hearing. Sometimes they're unusually short.   Occasionally the closing of the plates in their skull can compress their brain and slow their development.   Sometimes boys with Chotzen Syndrome have undescended testicles.  

$2993.50 is available towards the cost of my adoption!


  1. Sarah do you know any more about Owen? I asked if anyone had more pics on Reese's Rainbow and they sent me here. He's precious!!!! I see his hands are perfectly normal so he'll be spared that surgery!

    1. I don't know how else to contact you so I'll try it here...

      There is no more info or pictures available on him besides what is here unless you inquire about adopting him with the agency. This region doesn't give out a lot of info, and Owen has the most pictures of any child Reece's Rainbow has listed in his region. We have tried getting info on someone else in this region and it's very tough. We are waiting to hear back from the agency now about more info on that child.

      So really the only thing I can tell you is contact the agency. Email me at forhisgloryhandiwork (at) gmail (dot) com, and I can help you with that! :)

      Thanks for visiting my blog!

    2. Oh, and I also have to add, for those nosy blog readers... that we aren't inquiring about the other child in region 3 for our family, but for friends of ours! ;)

  2. TY Sarah!!! I will e-mail you!!!

  3. Hi Sarah,
    What a wonderful blog you have here! I just wanted to tell you, for anyone that may be interested, that Owen's deformity is totally fixable. My daughters were born with craniosynostosis (although they do not have any syndromes) and they had surgery when they were babies and are completely normal. So although Owen may have to undergo several surgeries and may be delayed in some areas, he can have a completely normal life. I don't want families to be scared away because of how he looks now, he can and will look better with medical intervention.

    Let me know if you or anyone have any questions.

    God bless!

  4. I wish I could adopt all of them!My heart breaks for these poor babies.Unfortunately the economy and my age is against me.Just know that you are all in my prayers because our Lord can do the impossible!God bless all with His grace for the new year.Hugs ,Peggie
