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.

Update on Joshy (Igor)

<<<UPDATE 2/10/12>>> Joshy proved to be very much the gentleman. They found him! Not in the good institution we hoped, but he's found. His donation link is back up! Please consider helping him!


For those of you interested in/praying for/donating towards Joshy's adoption (I call him Joshy, since Igor is not his real name either), we have some sad news.

Reece's Rainbow does not currently know where Joshy is located. That means he has been removed from their website until they get more information. There's no way to donate towards his account or advocate for him at this point.

For those of you who heard he was at a good institution (since he had been transferred), that is no longer (or maybe never was) the case. He's lost.

He was to be the main focus in a fundraising and awareness campaign in a few days. Now we are scrambling and trying to regroup. Our new focus will be on Laurel, whose need of rescue is more desperate. (See my personal plea for Laurel here.)

My heart is broken. Many tears have been shed over this little boy and this horrible news. I know of two families who were interested in him, but still working some things out. Sometimes that hope gets us going. Now we're holding out hope that he's found.

Part of me wants to think that Laurel's adoption needs were so great that Joshy needed to hide for a little while so Laurel could be saved. I like to think of Joshy as a gentleman like that.

I have Joshy's picture from the link that is no longer active. There's nothing to click on and nothing left to say. So...

Dear God help us find him.
