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.

Henry meets his family!

Remember Henry? Well his family just met him for the first time! And they posted new pictures!

He is so little (about the size of a newborn) so they look forward to "fattening him up a bit."

From his mom, Carla, "He is beautiful and I am in love."

Baby and Daddy!

They could still use our support! Right now Henry is struggling with bronchitis, and they are hoping he's released back to the orphanage so they can spend more time with him. They are also not 100% of the way done fundraising. To help, please visit their blog: Bringing Henry Home!
