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.

Introducing our focus for March: Victoria and Igor!

Victoria and Igor are in the same institution in Eastern Europe. They both need a family. It was hard to choose between them, so after much debate we decided to focus on both! That also allows us to advocate for a few others sooner and keeps us on schedule. Laurel has $10,000 available for her adoption even though our goal was only $5,000. So we can definitely raise $5,000 for both kids this month. Who's with us!

More than just fund raising, we also advocate and share. Many children have found their families this way. If $12 is beyond your means right now, maybe just simply share these kids with others. You never know what will come of it! (One of our Bring Hope members found her son this way!)

More to come!


  1. Victoria is "my" girl! Unfortunately I am not in a position to adopt her, but I advocate for her and am so glad to see she is part of Bring Hope to 12's focus this month! I love Igor too. I hope there funds grow lots and lots this month.

    By the way, there is a great giveaway going on at Julia Nalle's blog for Victoria, Igor and other children here: http://covenantbuilders.blogspot.com/2012/03/mulligan-stew-giveaway-already.html

    Can't wait to see these kids on the moving mountains page and especially the My Family Found Me Page at Reece's Rainbow!

    1. Julia is part of our Bring Hope group! She has been working hard for these kids behind the scenes. I don't know what we'd do without her! Thanks for sharing!

    This girl used to be listed on RR and she has arthrogryposis of her hands. She turned 10 last January. I am hoping she can get re-listed soon, and better yet, be adopted.

    1. Oh Christine, thank you so much for this! That child is Elizaveta! We blogged about her until she was unlisted. (http://arthrogryposisadoption.blogspot.com/2010/06/elizaveta-has-been-waiting-for-eight.html)

      At the time she disappeared I contacted RR to make sure she had not died, and they assured me that even though they did not know where she was that she was reportedly okay. I'm happy to see her picture in the U listing. We had one interested family at the time before she went missing. I will email them just to let them see her face again. I don't know if they're still in the position to adopt, but they will want to see her. Thanks again!
