Orphans with Arthrogryposis

There are kids with Arthrogryposis all over the world who wait for a family to call their own. Every child should have a Mama and Papa to love them. Sadly many kids will never know the love of a family as they will live out their shortened lives in institutions. The children posted here are from Reecesrainbow.com If you can't adopt, you can donate to their grants on reecesrainbow.com Don't leave them to die in institutions.

Elizaveta has been waiting for EIGHT Years!!!

When I first started following the waiting children on Reece's Rainbow back in 2007 when I found a link on my friend Valerie's blog it wasn't too long after that Elizaveta was listed.

That was almost THREE YEARS ago and she is STILL waiting on her forever family.

She is EIGHT years old has have NEVER known the love of a family. Imagine being 8 years old & never ever calling anyone "Mom" & being comforted by a mother (or a father!) She is likely living in an institution getting the just basic necessity of food, water & shelter.

There is very little information on how her Arthrogryposis affects her. I would assume she is affected in at least her legs because if it was "uppers only" I'm sure that would be said. Reece's Rainbow lists her has smart, social & able!

Could you be the family she needs to Blossom??????

Here is here information from Reece's Rainbow

  1. Hi, I just wanted to let you know I had called About A Child about Elizaveta, and was told the financial information listed on RR was incorrect. The woman I spoke with said it needed to be updated by Andrea, but this was almost two years ago and it still hasn't changed.
