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.

Understanding Arthrogryposis

This video gives a superb and easy to understand explanation of what arthrogryposis is.


Its an interview of Dr. Harold van Bosse from Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia, PA. He specializes in arthrogryposis and treats many of the former Reece's Rainbow kids who have AMC.

This video was done by Margarget Chaidez. She is making a documentary about AMC called The Sweetest Gift: Living with Arthrogryposis

Arthrogryposis Awareness Day is June 30th!! Wear blue that day!

They met their families!!

The three kiddos who I talked about in the previous have all met their families!!
