Girl, born Aug. 1999
Diagnoses: arthrogryposis; mental delay
Aubree is very active, easy-going, and friendly. Currently, she lives in a special school-orphanage.
From one of our adoptive families who visited with her in August 2012: She truly is a ray of sunshine! She comes out to greet us in her wheelchair (she has good upper body strength, her legs are fixed straight out in front of her and are tiny. She doesn’t appear to have AMC in her upper limbs at all. She is extremely friendly and happy, she enjoys singing and dances in her wheelchair. She can also use her upper body strength to scoot around the floor. I am so excited that she is available because I know she will be a wonderful daughter if just given a chance. This girl just exudes love and happiness! The orphanage does provide the children with an education, and even music instruction. We were able to see Aubree perform in a concert that the children gave for their visitors (they have help from humanitarian groups that come in to work on the building and work with the children). If anyone asks about her, I would love to talk with them more about the orphanage and the children there. They have my heart!
