This cute baby watched an adult walking with this walking stick. The minute he put it down she went picked it up and tried imitating him. Needles to say the height proofed a little bit of a challenge!

Aicha’s been with us, on and off, for the last year and a half. When she arrived, her hands were functionally useless as the result of a bad burn. Many of her fingers were melted together and they were all contracted, so she couldn’t pull them away from her palm. She got discharged this week with two fully functional hands containing 10 separate and beautiful fingers!
