This personal story of this little girl touched my heart. She doesn't have to go through a lifetime of not being able to walk. By having simple, easy treatment, she can be cured. She is in a country that doesn't provide the necessary treatment. We can help.
ON A HAPPIER NOTE!
I Stumbled upon this video. It's a great, candid example of what my 6 month old daughter is going through. Isn't it so adorable? It just shows hope and happiness at the same time, while going through these tough times.

My mother chose to write about me, to maybe help and inspire others out there with my fixable birth defect, that they are not alone. Club Feet is very common, in fact, according to Mayo Clinic, it's usually an isolated problem on an otherwise normal, healthy newborn. It can be mild or it can be severe. I have the mild case where my feet wasn't turned in completely. It was turned in at a 90 degree angle. It's cases where it will be turned in at a 180 degree angle. It can also effect both feet or just one foot. My mother had just one Club Foot, which was her left foot, and, she received treatment for it by wearing a brace to.
I love to just be in my mother's arms all day loooong as much as I can. Of course, I love to eat my cereal, and drink my milk and juice. My big brother and sister plays with me a whole lot of the time and I enjoy their company, because they make me laugh and do silly things. I never feel alone, because these people love me and support me.
That's why I know that I am going to be okay. My mother takes me back and fourth to the doctors and these people touch and move my feet around. I feel much better when I leave those people place and come back home to play with my brother and sister.
I also love to eat my hands, because I feel this itching on my gums. I don't know what it is. Think my mother told me its its because I am starting to grow some teeth out of my gums. All I know that I have to try to put things in my mouth to chew on it. It makes my gums feel good.
Anyway, enjoy the good reads about me and my birth defect and how I overcame it with the support of my beautiful parents and siblings. I want you to know that God is watching all over all of yous and to hold on to the FAITH.
