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.

Meet Anastasia (4)!

Anastasia is just a little over 18 months old. She was born in June 2009. She has a happy disposition (which is evident in her picture!) and will blossom in a family.


She badly needs physical and occupational therapies and possibly serial casting and surgery.

Her diagnoses include: Arthrogryposis (I'm assuming all limbs because it doesn't state otherwise), bilateral (both) dislocation of her hips (this is part of AMC), hydrocephalus, unspecified heart condition, unspecified iron deficiency anemia and Retarded development following protein-energy malnutrition.

Please don't this list of diagnoses scare you away from making this beautiful little girl apart of your family. Most if not all of her medical conditions are treatable and her quality of life will be good w/ treatment!

Her Reece's Rainbow Profile can be found here: http://reecesrainbow.org/anastasia-4

If you are not in a position to adopt please consider a donation to her grant fund (click on her profile above and click donate, be sure to specify the $$ is for her!) She currently has $1329 in her account! It costs around $20,000 to complete an international adoption. Many families want to adopt and are more then able to raise special children like Anastasia but they simply cannot afford the upfront cost of $20,000+ to get them home. So every penny helps!

If she is your daughter please contact Reece's Rainbow for more info on Anastasia and the adoption process!


  1. she reminds me SO much of Sophie. looking at her posture/position I wouldnt be surprised if she has amyoplasia

  2. Yeah! She even has the red marks on the midline of her face that most AMC babies have at birth.
