For this week's new Katie photo reveal, I'd like to direct you to our Reece's Rainbow page.
Reece's Rainbow is an avocacy site for children with special needs. Mainly Down Syndrome, but other needs are represented as well. Reece's Rainbow graciously works with adopting families to receive donations on their behalf. As a charity, anything you donate to RR is tax-deductible. Reece's Rainbow then sends the money donated to the family's adoption agency to go toward their fees.
Here's our page: http://reecesrainbow.org/43301/sponsorbernard, complete with this week's picture of Katie. This one was taken a little less than a month after the last photo. You can see she's still pretty bald here. We'll get into some hairier pictures soon. This photo was taken 2 short weeks before her first birthday, still well over a year ago. You may notice that her limb differences are more obvious in this picture. We're going to be looking at a prosthetic lower leg/foot on one side, a series of casts to turn her clubbed foot on the other side, and a couple of surgeries to release amniotic banding. (Imagine a baby getting a rubber band wrapped around a body part before birth, and you have a pretty good idea what this means.)
I look forward to working with Hannah's team of doctors and prosthetists to get Katie up and walking on her own.
Thanks for clicking! :)
