Apert Syndrome

 Apert Syndrome is a genetic defect and falls under the broad classification of craniofacial/limb anomalies. It can be inherited from a parent who has Apert, or may be a fresh mutation. It occurs in approximately 1 in 160,000 to 200,000 live births. Apert syndrome is primarily characterized by specific malformations of the skull, midface, hands, and feet. The skull is prematurely fused and unable to grow normally; the midface (that area of the face from the middle of the eye socket to the upper jaw) appears retruded or sunken; and the fingers and toes are fused together in varying degrees. To learn more about this syndrome, you can go here.

Reeces Rainbow have a few kids listed that have Apert syndrome.
These kids are typically normal cognitively developed. Their most special need is for a family.


Charlottes mom met Kacey, and has written some very  touching posts about her over at her blog. To read them, go here and here.

Quite a few RR families have adopted children with Apert syndrome. Could you be the right family for one of these beautiful children?
