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.

This is Delilah!!

This doll's name is Delilah. She is just over a year old and has a syndrome called Larsen's Syndrome. Larsen's syndrome is congenital dislocations of the joints. However, some kids with this syndrome are also born with Arthrogryposis. In other words, Larsen's Syndrome can have Arthrogryposis as a trait & is under the '"umbrella" of Arthrogryposis.

Girl, Born March 26, 2009
Sweet Deliliah was born with Larsen's Syndrome. She does have additional limb deformities, in addition to the typical hand and foot differences common in Larsen syndrome. Hoping to learn more about any possible medical or cognitive needs she has as a result of her genetic differences.
