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 July: James!

James needs a family! He already walks, smiles, plays, poses for pictures and is a super smart bundle of joy!
James is not in an institution and is instead in a foster home! In fact everything about New Hope Foundation is amazing! We've seen kids in institutions in China come home in rough shape. But here they are healthy--socially, emotionally and physically.
To quote their website, they aim to...
  • To take physically handicapped babies under six months old and provide them with a caring and secure environment;
  • To provide long-term care in as close to a normal home environment as possible;
  • To seek out the very best medical solution for their handicap and facilitate their treatment;
  • To work very closely with the local Children’s Welfare Institutes to give these children the very best opportunities for the future and also raising the awareness of the needs of these abandoned children in China;
  • To employ and train local staff, as well as working closely with local community to help support their needs;
  • To provide an opportunity for volunteers to get be involved with the care of these children;
  • To provide training and support for prospective foster parents in conjunction with the local Children’s Welfare Institutes; and
  • To keep accurate records of the children’s development so that they have a “history”.       

  • I can't tell you what that will do for his brain development and transfer to a new family! Wonders!

    For more information on James (and more pictures) please click here.
    You can make such a difference! We know three families now who have found their AMCers from someone sharing on Facebook alone!
    And once again we have no way to donate your monthly $12 to this child's adoption fund, but you can continue to make donations to the few families who are in the late stages of adopting their AMCers and who are desperate for help:
    The Blackmon family needs a few thousand. They met their children last month and are waiting to finalize their adoptions.
    The Schmitt family also need a few thousand. They have also already met their children and are waiting for their final trip.
    Caius' family (the Robinsons) have committed to another child (another double adoption!) and are a few thousand short as well. They are finishing up their dossier and are almost done with all the adoption paperwork. The way things are going they may finish their adoptions and take home their children around the same time as the Blackmon and Schmitt families even though they have not met their children yet!
    Also if you wish to donate towards New Hope Foundation to help kids like James, go here.


    1. What a precious and joyful boy! We don't qualify for China's adoption program but will advocate for him any way!

    2. There are very few orphanages which could give that much love and care to the children. I got my eyes wet after seeing the boy's picture.

    3. We are in the process of adopting this precious guy.
