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 Alexis

This is Alexis!

Isn't she GORGEOUS!??

She is ELEVEN years old!

She needs a family ASAP! And she REALLY wants one too!

She is eligible to be adopted by LARGE FAMILIES and OLDER PARENTS (up to age 55)

She has Arthrogryposis in all four limbs and mild mental retardation is listed too (AMC and mental retardation are *not* diagnoses that co-exist very often so I am hoping this diagnosis is more a result of being in an institution likely since birth)

Thankfully she is an institution where is loved and has access to an outside aide organization but this is NOT a substitue for a family!!

Ohh someone please go adopt her! She reminds me of a little girl I met in the waiting room at Shriners Philadelphia, she too was eleven, has AMC and had been adopted from China.

Her Reeces Rainbow profile can be viewed here: http://reecesrainbow.org/alexis3905

If you think Alexis would be a great addition to your family contact Reeces Rainbow!


  1. I hope she gets a family soon.
    I wonder, what happened to Perry? His profile disappeared from Reece's Rainbow. I am wondering if he is the same boy on "Rainbow Kids" that's with Bethany Christian Services.

  2. Thanks for pointing out Perry is no longer on RR :( I looked at Rainbow Kids, not sure if thats him or not. I hope he is alright and that RR could only list him for so long!
