I'm hew here and hoping to find some commmon ground. My son 09-19-03 was born w/o his femur and fibula in his left leg. At 4 months we had his foot amputated in order to fit him with a prothsetic(later is month). It's a rare occurance 1:85,000 know as PFFD.(link below) I don't know if there is someplace else I'd be better suited, if so please let me know. Thank you
