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.

About Aubree from those who have met her

The following was written by Laurel's father. They were able to interact with Aubree a lot while in her birth country. 

My wife and I were blessed to meet Aubree while we were adopting our daughter this summer. We had the opportunity to interact with her on nearly a daily basis for three weeks. This dear little girl charmed us from the moment we met her; we both wanted to bring her home too! Unfortunately, our circumstances only allow for the adoption of one child, so we're praying that Aubree's forever family will find her soon. Aubree always greeted us with her beautiful, bright smile and lots of waving – this girl is full of enthusiasm! I think her personality is best described as sunny; I can't remember a time during our visit when she wasn't smiling. She was also eager to hold hands or to give a friendly hug. Some of the other children struggled with being a bit too forceful in demonstrating physical affection, but Aubree, for all her enthusiasm, was always gentle. She also seemed to get along well with the other chidren. In terms of Aubree's needs, her legs appeared to be affected the most by her arthrogryposis, especially in her knees, which appeared to have an extremely low range of motion, bordering on total rigidity. It also seemed to us that Aubree may have some cognitive delays as well, though these apparent 'delays' don't at all dampen her kind spirit. She just needs the patience, love, and support that only a family can provide. Please prayerfully consider brining Aubree into your family. She needs you. My wife and I would be happy to answer any other question you may have, to the best of our knowledge.

If you would like to be put in touch with this family about Aubree please contact us at bringhopeto12in2012@gmail.com and we will connect you. Or if you would like to offer money towards a matching grant for Aubree please email us! Thank you!
