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 Doyle!

Doyle is a two and a half little boy with webbed and fused fingers and hands. This may be a form of Arthrogryposis but considering there are 400 types of AMC I am not sure which type it would be and its possible his diagnosis is not at all under the umbrella of AMC but none the less he needs a family to call his own! I have met plenty of kids w/ webbed/ fused finger at Shriners and hand surgeons are very gifted in doing surgery on these kiddos. Although I suspect many kids learn to function beautifully with their hands as they are.

There are more photos available of Doyle!

From one of our adoptive families who visited with him in February 2011: "Doyle is precious, loves attention, very smart, loves piano and type of music. He has a smile that will melt your heart. Even though he only has a few fingers on his right hand he still grabs and holds things. He walks. Lovely Lovely child! "

If you are not in a position to adopt please consider a donation to his grant fund (click on her profile below and click donate, be sure to specify the $$ is for him!) She currently has $18 in his 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 Doyle but they simply cannot afford the upfront cost of $20,000+ to get them home. So every penny helps!
