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.

A New Picture of Grady

There are new pictures of Grady!!!!!!

and look how he has grown!!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't he an absolute doll!!!!!!!! He has lower extremity Arthrogryosis & based on his previous pictures, with the right treatment he has the potential to walk. His legs appear to "extended" or stuck straight. An extension contracture in the knee only happens in 20% of kids with AMC. And 90% of kids of extended knees become very functional walkers (I can site this in a medical journal if anyone care!). The only thing I can't tell in this picture is how or if his hips are affected. If they are mildly affected (or hopefully not at all) & are not stuck in a sitting position with treatment he'll do great! And because his hands aren't affected he should do even better with mobility if given the right tools & therapies!


Here is Grady's Reece's Rainbow Profile information!

Boy, Born May 14, 2007

SO happy to finally have new photos of Grady! He is just as adorable as I always thought. Blonde hair and bright blue eyes! What a snuggable and happy little boy! Grady was born with arthrogryposis of his lower limbs. His hands and arms are unaffected. He is not able to walk at this time. He is 3 now, and will so greatly benefit from surgery, therapy, and loving family to encourage him! Without this, he will remain bedridden for the rest of his life.
Grady is completely typically developing cognitively. He is described as very social and smart, talkative, playful, and active. He has no cognitive delays or speech problems whatsoever. Please consider Grady for your son!
More photos available!
