Ruby's Day.

Ruby turned 5 today. She really liked the celebration, and really enjoyed the sounds her new xylophone made.

Pure delight.

Oliver turned 9 on Friday and boy was he happy! As soon as we arrived at the House, he was there making himself known in no uncertain terms, that it was his special day. He thoroughly enjoyed his celebration with the other children in the Unit.

Sitting back relaxing!

Lexi & Cassie were just sitting back relaxing on Friday after they had their new casts put on. The children need to stay in the stroller until the casts are dry, but this is considered a treat, as they don't get to go in the stroller otherwise!

Tina turns 16!

Tina celebrated her 16th birthday this week with the other children in the CP/Residential Unit. She was so excited, she needed help to blow out her candles after attempting to blow them out a couple of times herself! She enjoyed her gifts, but is looking forward to getting her ears pierced in the coming weeks.

Zac & Benjamin

Benjamin's next cast went on easily, and Zac's feet were in a position to be able to do his tenotomy, which almost brings him to the end of the treatment stage.

Timothy & Claire

Timothy and Claire's casting is going very well and we're really pleased with the correction we're seeing in their feet. They are both really active after their casts are dry, but enjoy the first few hours sitting in the stroller while they casts completely dry.

The Pit that’s a Hit!

A donor made it possible for us to buy a wonderful new piece of playground equipment for the Clubfoot Unit. As you can see from the photos it is a huge hit!

I’m waiting for my Latte……

Cassie’s condition is complicated and is not just clubfoot. She hasn’t had casts on for a few weeks because of complications. We’re hoping for a smooth run now and as you can see she is a most satisfied customer.

Hong Can’s first casts.

Hong Can is the newest addition to the family and he had his first casts applied yesterday. He also needs sponsors. Stay tuned to follow his progress.

Freedom for Josh!

Josh came out of the fulltime bracing stage on Monday. He will leave to go back into foster care in his hometown in a few weeks.

Goodbye Miss Sophie!

Today was a memorable day for the Clubfoot Unit, as we said goodbye to Sophie who left with her new Foster Mum. Sophie is the first child to leave after finishing the casting and fulltime bracing stages of treatment. She now only needs to wear her brace for naps and at night. Isn’t she just a darling?
