This is Pouchon who has been with us three years.  He tends to be a little melancholic except when playing marbles or soccer.  When he smiles, his face really lights up.  He's grown a lot since he first came.  Pouchon is one of a group of children who have extra digits. We have about 25 kids who have twelve fingers.  Pouchon's special in that the extra digit of his right hand is fully developed though there's no joint so it's not very useful.  Removing this extra finger would require serious surgery and he hasn't complained about it so we'll wait for the opportune time.

  1. Father Marc~ That is amazing. I worked as a hand therapist (Occupational Therapist) so it is interesting to me.
