Hi everyone. Still remembering Mara in prayer. Lots of prayers please...
For those of you whom come in off the search engines, while we wait I am posting a few other sweet Aperts Kiddos looking for homes as well:
BOY, February 22, 2007
Look at this little love! So happy to finally have more info about him. Jonah has APERT syndrome. His fingers are fused and he has mild cranio-facial issues. He is considered very high functioning, intelligent, physically able, and the director really wants a family for him.
Jonah is facing the institution very soon (probably where Brady and Heath are, the Lost Boys), so I hope we can come together to fundraise and find a family for Jonah!
Find Jonah at Reece's Rainbow HERE [you might have to scroll a bit.] Thank you.
From her file at Reece's Rainbow:
Girl, Born February 23, 2009
Sweet Nastya was born with Apert syndrome. She is going on 2 years old now, and will so greatly benefit from cranial surgery and reconstruction of her hands as necessary. Even fused, her hands are quite functional and she is able to use them well. She is very personable and laid back.
From her medical records: Apert syndrome, singaphylia (fingers attached together), cleft palate
From an adoptive family who visited with her in December 2010: Little Nastya is a sweet lil doll. Shes not walking yet but can pull herself up and walk around furniature. She can crawl all over even. Shes very friendly and smiley. She even loved to wave to us. she certainly would be a sweet lil daughter and so needs medical care for her Apert Syndrome.
From Her File at Reece's Rainbow: This little blonde haired beauty appears to have Apert Syndrome. You can see in her photo that her hands are fused as well. If you have information about other possible diagnoses, please let us know.
