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 Joel!!!

This cutie is just 5 months old! This is the PERFECT time to get started on that paperwork so that he could be home by a year old if not sooner! He has Arthrogryposis (I'm assuming all limbs as it doesn't say otherwise), convulsive disorder, hypotrophy, capillary hemangioma of the right cheek and back region. I am guessing by looking at his hands he has the most common form of Arthrogryposis, called Amyoplasia. Amyoplasia is a non-genetic form of Arthrogryposis (many forms of AMC are genetic) Arthrogryposis is very treatable and babies respond to therapy the best during the first year of life, so the sooner he is home the easier treatment will likely be!!

If you think little Joel is your son please contact Reese's Rainbow to inquire about Joel and if you meet the qualifications to adopt from Joel's country!!!
