ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLEX CONGENITA SUPPORT, INC..
October 16, 2012

Truthfully I am not only just a volunteer but a client served as well. I started out as a client served and continue as one but also I volunteer in moderating the chat that we hold every week online. The people I have met through this support group, AMCSI, have become my family. Without them I wouldn't be able to ask questions from the people who have been there and done that and I couldn't bond with the mothers and fathers who are going through it now or will be going through it soon. We are a family, we are friends. Two years I spent alone (besides my family) doing my best to flounder through therapies and surgeries and AMCSI offered up their memebers to help us through the hard times and find people who would share our small triumphs.

ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLEX CONGENITA SUPPORT, INC..
April 21, 2011

My son's condition was unknown to us so we were surprised at his birth about all the differences he had. When we found out that it was Arthrogryposis we started looking into things. I had even did a search trying to find support groups. I came up empty handed, but then a little before he had turned 2 yrs old I decided to look again and this time I must have put the right wording in because up came AMCSI. I had never felt more relieved in my life.. For almost 2 yrs I felt alone and then there it was my light to guide me through the tunnel. Everyone has been so wonderful and accepting and helpful. Having others who understand you is quite a wonderful feeling and I'm glad that I found AMCSI in that search.
