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 Ria

This is Ria, the queen of saying "cheese!" Just imagine this beauty with long, flowing hair! Ria is six years old, born April 2005, and available for an older child grant. She has arthrogryposis with no other stated diagnoses. (They put her condition as "congenital mutiple arthrogryposis," but that is just arthrogryposis, aka joint contractures.) Her description on Reece's Rainbow identifies her joint contractures as being in her shoulders, knees, ankles and wrists. So perhaps her elbows, fingers, etc. are not affected at all. She can stand, walk with assistance, grab objects, throw objects and go from sitting to standing without assistance! She could be a role model for some of these kids with arthrogryposis still learning to do those things! Ria is described as social, smart, self-sufficient, independent, musical and well-spoken. She would make an excellent addition to any family!

Meet Raymond

This is Raymond! This birthday boy just turned four this month (July), and he needs a family to give him a party hat and some cute glasses to make him the most adorable four-year-old ever! Raymond is in the same orphanage with Igor. His hands and wrists look good so they *may* not be affected, or at least not require a lot of intervention. As far as his lower extremities, with some Ponseti casting and physical therapy he's in a good position for walking and standing!

Besides arthrogryposis, Raymond also has optic atrophy (mild or severe vision loss, and possible trouble with colors) and he's cross-eyed. For support for optic atrophy go here.

If you can envision this little man with the cute glasses in your family (available to large families too!) please contact Reece's Rainbow.
