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.

This is Igor! Isn't he precious?! 

He has been on Reece's Rainbow far, far, far, far too long. 

He is SEVEN YEARS old, he was born November 26th, 2004

He has arthrogryposis. The description says only affecting his legs but I see contractures in his wrists and elbows but they look mild! 

Can you imagine being SEVEN years old and NEVER, EVER having the love of a mother or father or siblings? 

He was likely given up simply because his limbs are different and in his country of birth this the norm

His story just becomes sadder though.....he was transferred.....to an adult mental institution....a place where he will become BEDRIDDEN for life because he can't walk because he hasn't been given access to treatment. 

Transferred to an adult mental institution means this harsh reality

He is an Eastern European Country 

Despite being in an orphanage he is described as loving and affectionate!! 

It is URGENT that he finds a family!! 

The longer he is an the institution the more likely it is that he will change for the worse like Ksenia has

Even if you cannot be his family consider making a donation to his Reeces Rainbow Account! 

The more money in his account the more likely it is that a family will commit to him and the less money they will have to come up with for his ransom. 

An adoption from EE on average costs $20,000 

He only has $95.00 in his account  

If you would like to donate to his account please go here to donate! 

If you think he could be your son but wonder what life after he is home will be like?!

Evan, Madeline, Aaron, Gerri, Cameron and Victoria all have arthrogryposis too and all were adopted from Reece's Rainbow and they have ALL blossomed and THRIVED in their new families!! 

Evan who is affected A LOT like Igor is now WALKING unassisted!!

Read whats its like to adopt a child with arthrogryposis, especially if you're unfamiliar with the diagnosis

If you want to inquire about adopting Igor please contact Reece's Rainbow!

Even if you can't donate to his adoption or be his family PLEASE share this blog post! The more people who see this the better!!
