Meet Libbie.

Libbie runs triathlons, but she was born with dislocated knees and club feet.

Libbie’s parents adopted her from China, and when they met her for the first time, she was unable to walk because of her condition. She had to “scoot around” on the backs on her knees to remain mobile.

Libbie has Larsen syndrome, an orthopedic disorder that affects the development of bones throughout the body and causes a range of abnormalities on the bones and joints. Libbie was born with dislocated knees and elbows, as well as other symptoms.

Upon arriving in the United States, her parents took her to her local children’s hospital where she had multiple surgeries. Libbie is now walking and running, on her own two feet.
