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.

What Happens If You Care A Whole Awful Lot

When we started advocating for orphans with arthrogryposis in January 2012, we had no idea what to expect. We created a group on Facebook, Bringing Hope to 12 in 2012 and we believed we could make a difference. There were a lot of orphans with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita that needed to find forever families. All of our contributors are either moms of children with arthrogryposis or adults with arthrogryposis, so who better to advocate than us?

In the past year, I have had the honor to be a part of a group that is teaching me with every post, every discussion.. I have learned so much about international adoptions--not only about the conditions these children are living in--but most important, the people who believed in a child they never met and said yes, you are mine. Many of our new AMC famiilies, I have only had the chance to meet online. But I am forever connected to them because of arthrogryposis, because of adoption, because they cared a whole awful lot./

We will continue to advocate for a new child each month in 2013 and we cannot do it alone. We need your voices and your support. Sharing the stories of our children is just as important as putting money in their adoption funds.. We know it can get better and it all starts with a simple “share” or email with a link to a blog post. If you can financially support each featured child, any donation does make a difference./

Anthony, our featured child for January, could really use someone to care a whole awful lot. Anthony is a 13-year year boy living in an Eastern European Institution. He needs parents, and he needs them fast! In Eastern Europe if he reaches the age of 16 he will become un-adoptable. Given that he has all extremity arthrogryposis his ability to become an independent adult in his society is very, very unlikely. He will likely be an some level of an institution forever. He doesn't deserve that, no child does. You can read more here.

If you can’t make a donation, then “donate” a promise to share the blog post with your networks. We never know how the families will find their child.
