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 Victoria!!

This is Victoria!

She will be 8 years old on Dec. 12th

She is happy and affectionate. Likes to play with dolls and pretend to be a mommy

She is smart and her caregivers love her!

Her special need is Arthrogryposis that appears to only affect her hips, knees and feets. (other wise known as Lower Extremity Only Arthrogryposis)

She is not currently walking but with interventions in the form of therapy, casting and orthopedic surgery her potential for independent mobility is GREAT!

She is currently living in an institution where she likely only gets her basic needs met.

If she isn't adopted she will remain bedridden for life

Her profile on Reece's Rainbow can be viewed here: http://reecesrainbow.org/victoria-1
