A Possible New Diagnosis

After looking at some photos of Grace, our specialist says Grace does not have club feet. Her feet turn outward instead of the typical inward twist of club feet. Her condition is called congenital vertical talus (CVT) or rigid flatfoot. This condition will most likely require surgery as well as some casting treatment. This condition cannot be treated the same way as club feet. We hope that will help our case at the US Embassy in order to bring her home. We are so grateful for the people who have come forward to help us by taking pictures and with offers of medical help.
