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.

Meet our focus for April: Bill


This is Bill (a.k.a. Liam from An Orphan's Wish). Bill was originally adopted from China, but is available for adoption here in America. He is currently in Texas but anyone from anywhere in the US can adopt him. His AMC primarily affects his arms. As you can see he has wrist contractures and shoulder involvement. But great range of motion in his elbows and no leg involvement! He seems to do everything a typical boy his age does and is mobile and independent and smart.

Bill does need a special kind of family dynamic where he is the youngest and smallest.  

Bill's adoption costs will be minimal (as far as adoptions go) so we are not fundraising at this time for him unless an interested family steps forward and needs the help. Creating a Family's site where Bill is listed notes:

Cost for this adoption are uncertain at this time, but will likely be around $5,000-$8000. Bill may be eligible for a monthly adoption subsidy from the state (depending on where you finalize the adoption). The agency can provide more details on this possibility. 

So right now we're just doing a sharing campaign. Can you share Bill with anyone interested in adoption? He has been transferred a few times and needs a permanent, forever home. Thanks!

If you are interested in adopting Bill please contact Krystie at Children's Connections: krystie@childrensconnections.org.
