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 Laurel!

Isn't her smile awesome?

She is 15 years old! 

She has arthrogryposis in all limbs 

She is an orphan and likely has been since birth

Can you Fathom that...15 years old and never having a family?!

Right now Laurel has something to smile about, even though she is an orphan in an Eastern European country she is in a good orphanage for older children with physical disabilities but.....

That will all change in just SIX short MONTHS....

Upon her 16th birthday in August...per her countries laws...she will be ineligible for adoption

Where will she go?!

She will likely go to an adult mental institution

An adult mental institution may mean very little food, no access to a toilet, no regular baths or dental care and confined to a bed...ALL day, EVERY day, for the REST of her life...

She needs to find a family ASAP!!! 

Large Families and older parents are allowed to adopt in her country 

Her family needs to be homestudy approved before committing 

Please SHARE this! Publicity will increase the likelihood that her family will find her!  

If you cannot adopt her you can donate to her Reece's Rainbow account the more money she has in the account the easier it will for her family to commit to her! 

If you're wondering if adoption is right for you please read this! 

If you need access to resources to learn about AMC or older child adoptions PLEASE let me know, I'll gladly connect you to the people who have "been there done that" please email me

If you're interested in adopting her PLEASE email Reece's Rainbow andrea@reecesrainbow.org ASAP! 

And please SHARE this!
