Our daughter Vivienne was born with bilateral clubfoot.
Her feet were successfully casted, using the Ponseti Method, while she was still in China.
But we really don’t want that. We want to help her, now while she is still young, to learn how to walk properly, and to walk without having to work her hips and knees and ankles so hard with every step.
So the best option for Vivi are AFOs. Or ankle-foot orthoses.
These are custom made, so a trip to the orthotist for a set of Vivi-sized molds was required.
So that’s great.
So that’s bad.
Whatever medical needs she has, we’re ready.
After all, she is the bravest of us all.
