As you may know, I recently posted that our newborn son Kolby was born with a clubfoot. You can read that entry here: https://thefullquiverhomeschoolhouse.wordpress.com/2008/08/28/clubfoot/ 

This is all new territory for my family and I, because we have never had any experience with this condition previously. We had no knowledge base to pull from, so I began doing extensive research to learn as much as I could, as a layperson, to best meet our son’s needs. I have found some very valuable resources that I want to share with you in case you have a loved one affected by clubfoot or know someone who does.

I recommend visiting the following web-sites:

  • http://www.six-feet.com This is an all-inclusive page that speaks to all of the aspects of having a child with the clubfoot birth defect.
  • http://www.ponseti.info/  This page deals with specific aspects of clubfoot treatment and education.

Another fabulous resource that I was so grateful to have suggested to me is this:

Click to join nosurgery4clubfootThis is a wonderful internet-based forum composed of parents who are currently having their children treated, and it is full of wonderful information that can only be gleaned from personal experiences! This group has already been such an incredible blessing to us, even this early in our journey. I HIGHLY recommend it!
