These are photos of Emilia's legs before surgery and after. Three years ago when we adopted her she could not walk , her one leg was bent backwards and her other leg was missing most of the bones . She had osteomyelitis in the orphanage and it spread quickly to her legs and arms. Both of her legs and one arm have been completely rebuilt. She can now stand and walk however her one leg does not bend (because it is fused and the other has limited mobility) . She always has a smile on her face and her only request was to be able to ride a bike. On November 30 th. she will have the fixator removed from her leg. She still requires several more operations on her legs and arms as she grows but look how far she has come. She is our bionic little girl with one amazing personality . She doesn't let anything stop her.
