Available Children




Donate Today!

LPA has been providing adoption grants to help fund the adoption of children for the past several years, but we would like to increase the amount that we give.  It is our eventual goal to help fund a majority of the costs for children who are 10 years old and up (and, if we have the funding, younger children as well).  Please donate to the Adoption Fund, and help these children get home to their families.  


*Make sure to click the Adoption Fund when you are donating!*



Any contribution is greatly appreciated.  No help is too small.
Thank you so much for your support!



Waiting Children








Sylvia is an adorable 3 year old little girl who lives in the United States. She is a known giggler, and smiles very easily. She is very engaging and interacts with others all of the time. She has learned how to scoot on her back, and holds toys with both hands. Sylvia has campomelic dysplasia, and has a tracheotomy. She is considered medically fragile, and definitely will need to be followed closely by an experienced medical team. She is super adorable, and would love to find her family!










Justin just turned three years old and is from China. He is an adorable, delightful boy who loves to blow raspberries and make silly sounds and faces...a true class clown in the making. We suspect that he has either Diastrophic Dysplasia or SED, but we don't have confirmation on his diagnosis yet. We DO have a ton of pictures and video, though! He really, really wants to find his family and make them laugh!
