Thanks to everyone who came out to support Addie's Angels and the 4th Annual 'Walk with Angels' race. This year was our most successful race to date. Pictures and more details to come soon.
ADDIE'S ANGELS, INC. is a non-profit organization that serves children in the Greater New Orleans Metropolitan area. We provide services in a variety of ways, specifically to children who were born without one or both of their arms, or who have lost the use of their arms through some sort of accident. If you know of a child who can benefit from this organization, please let us know by clicking the 'Contact Us' tab above.
When Amiee was 20 weeks pregnant we went to our doctor to find out the sex of the baby, and after we were told that we were having a little girl, the doctor also asked us to see a "high-risk" specialist to get a more in depth ultrasound. A few weeks later the ultrasound revealed that our little baby girl would not have a fully developed left arm. Her left arm would extend just below the elbow, and she would not have any functional parts of her left hand or fingers. While this was difficult to hear, we concentrated more on the fact that everything else seemed to be perfectly normal and healthy with our baby. Addison Claire Gallagher was born on November 3, 2009 and through the love and support of a wonderful network of family and friends she is developing physically and mentally at an astounding rate. We have been blessed to receive a wonderful variety of services from a lot of wonderful people and we just want to have an opportunity to give a little bit back to those who may not be as fortunate as we are.
