Tomorrow is World Clubfoot Day!!! As most of you know, Jacks was born with left clubfoot. He started treatment at 11 days old and on his 4th birthday he was able to finally not have to wear a brace. Please wear yellow, share this post, make his ribbon your profile picture, intentionally pray for children with clubfoot, or if you feel compelled please donate to Miraclefeet.
Mirclefeet is an international organization that helps children in developing countries gain access to care. Untreated clubfoot in these children creates a social stigma, increases their chances of neglect, they are unable to walk to school to gain an education and clubfoot is a treatable condition! Only $250 can completely change a child’s life! It’s the cost of the materials to cast and provide foot braces for one child. (We have raised enough to treat 4 children so far and our lifetime goal is at least 10!)
We are so blessed that Jacks’ clubfoot has been treated and now we monitor him for signs of relapse until puberty. All children should have access to care despite where they live!
Clubfoot has changed us people, as parents and I know God made Jacks’ imperfect foot part of his perfect plan!
Psalm 139:13-14For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
