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.

Kambry pictures!


Update on Kambry
We have a video of Kambry showing her playing and speaking with her sweet little voice! And with all these pictures it is safe to say that her body works well! Besides what looks like clubfeet and possible curved fingers on the right hand, her contractures don't seem to affect her much at all! (She makes it to AMC status barely, with at least three contractures in at least two areas of the body--clubfeet and fingers on one hand.) Just watching her wave bye-bye in the video or hold her baby doll shows she has excellent muscle control and function. She has plenty of muscle for an AMCer! And she is wonderfully cheerful!
She has Freeman Sheldon syndrome (or whistling face syndrome), a rare type of AMC, but besides the clear facial markers, the rest of her body is relatively typical. At least what we can tell!
This is a very good prognosis!
Let's help her get a family!

  1. Wow!! She is looking so good in these pictures!!! Thank you for the update! Was really excited to see a video of her, but the link just takes me to her profile page (which is all in... R*ssian?). I tried clicking on her picture and the link below it, but I didn't get anything. :( Sad.
