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 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.
