Meet Anna Grace:

Anna Grace was born with a limb difference: where her left leg and foot were missing several inches of bone length. Anna Grace’s mom, Wynne, was in the process of adopting her at two years of age when she was told her daughter might never walk. But Wynne discovered the then 27-month-old could crawl with great speed on her knees, so she made it her mission to ensure her daughter could live life to her fullest potential. Two months after coming home with her mom, Anna Grace underwent surgery at Cincinnati Children’s, and just 10 days later, Anna Grace was in her prosthesis and taking her first steps. And she hasn’t slowed down since! Today, Anna Grace is an active 12-year-old, and although she does need physical therapy for her lifelong condition, it doesn’t stop her from playing soccer, riding her bike, and swimming. Thanks to donations, Anna Grace has benefitted from cutting edge physical therapy equipment and prosthetics. She has big plans for her future including wanting to run a camp for kids with limb differences and be a motivational speaker one day. Anna Grace knows the importance for kids with prosthetics to be seen, to know they can do anything and be the best they can be.   

Thanks to donations to Cincinnati Children’s through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Anna Grace has benefitted from cutting edge physical therapy equipment and prosthetics.
