In honor of Max turning 4 and Charlotte turning 2 we are asking friends and family to donate to Miraclefeet.org.
As you know Charlotte was born with bilateral clubfeet which was diagnosed during pregnancy. We were also told Max had clubfeet before he was born but miraculously he was born clubfoot free. The cause has become very dear to us as we have learned so much about the birth defect in the last 4+ years.
We have been blessed with exceptional medical care and lots of prayers! After many months of casts, heel cord lengthening at 7 weeks old, months of her feet in boots and the bar, AFO braces, more casts, another surgery, and more AFO's we are so happy to have a walking, running, dancing, jumping, and most of all happy little girl!
Clubfeet is the most common birth defect and also the most easily treated to the point of 100% correction. Unfortunately, there are many places in the world that do not have access to medical care and treatment for clubfeet. Not only do these children live with pain and an inability to walk, in some cultures children born with clubfeet are shunned, abused, neglected, and denied privileges such as going to school.
Miraclefeet and its partnerships are going into these parts of the world and changing lives. They set up clinics and give support to families to complete clubfoot treatments. The organization is able to give the gift of walking with only $250 per patient. I am amazed at how life changing just a donation of $250 can be thanks to this organization.
We would be so grateful and honored to raise enough funds to help at least two other children.

Thank you very much!
With lots of love- The Krinkes
Amanda, George, Max, and Charlotte
