This little guy in waiting in C*hina for a forever family.
He just a little over 1 year old.
He healthy and cognitively on track
He has upper extremity arthrogryposis
He has been in physical therapy for 2 months
He is pulling to stand
Could he be your son?!?!?!

I have upper extremity arthrogryposis (as well as lower extremity) and my arms looked just like his does when I was born but I got immediate treatment in the form of occupational and physical therapy, stretching and splinting. I have had just a few surgeries on my upper extremities because I have adapted well to using my hands/ arms like they are. Despite the fact my hands are clubbed, my elbows no longer straighten out, my shoulders are severely limited and only 2 fingers and my thumb can truly flex I am able to cook, dress myself, bathe independently, I drive an unadapted car, I brush my own hair and teeth and I live 100% on own.
So you see this little guy has a TON of potential if given the opportunity to be a in family and has access to medical treatment!
