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

Kelby is  2 years old and is in China. He giggles a lot, says 'mama', and is a very curious child. He is described as being extroverted and active, and loves new toys. He has OI, and would love to find his family!


Maggie is an adorable little girl who is almost 3 years old who lives in China. She has achondroplasia, and her paperwork says she has cerebral palsy, but we wonder if that is because she may have foramen magnum compression instead, which is common in babies with achondroplasia. She is reportedly shy, but has a ready smile for her nanny, and is fond of playing with toys. She really needs a family soon, so she can get love and proper medical care!

Paxton is a handsome three year old boy from China who has achondroplasia. He is a little shy at first and then is very warm and open to people he knows. He has many friends and loves playing building blocks. And he's adorable. He would love to find his family!

George is a 3 year old boy who lives in China. We are unsure of his diagnosis at this time (still waiting for more pictures without so many bundles of clothes). He is very short for his age, and he has a heart condition, and he happens to be super cute (apparently he is surprised by the camera!). He imitates words, is fond of listening to music, smiles easily, and is described as being extroverted. He definitely would like a family!

Acadia is very cute little girl who is 3 years old, and is from China. We think there is a chance she has Robinow syndrome, but there is no confirmation on that yet. She likes to happly jump, play games, and chase her friends. She also LOVES having her picture taken! She woudl love to find her family!

Ashton is such a cutie patootie. He is 3 1/2 years old and loves to play with other children, listen to music, and reading his books. He has an unknown form of dwarfism... if we receive any additional information, we will certainly update this page. He would love a family!

Daniel is a beautiful 4 year old boy who possibly has Ellis van Creveld (EVC), and is from China. He is described as being fond of listening to music, playing with toys, and talkative. He gets along with his peers, loves playing games, and follows instructions. He is in foster care in China, and is developing language very well. He would love to find his family!

Devin is a handsome boy who is described as being extroverted and who loves to smile! He is four years old, and really enjoys people and loves teddy bears and playing ball. We think he may have possible Russell Silver Syndrome, but we don't know for sure. We do know that he definitely wants a family!

This is Nathan! He is listed as having Rickets, but we think he may have achondroplasia. He is 4 1/2 years old and lives in China.


Major is majorly cute! This handsome young man from China is 5 years old and is described as being "smart and active" by his caregivers. He has a $2000 grant through his adoption agency too! Major's diagnosis is currently Rickets, and we don't have any other definitive pictures yet, but we suspect that he may have a form of dwarfism. Rickets has been a common misdiagnosis for children in China in the past. Either way, we think he is super cute and deserves his family!

Harmony is a five year old girl who lives in China. We don't know her diagnosis yet, but she is well below the growth curves. We are thinking it's possible that she may fall into the SED category. She loves to dance to music, and is described as "dancing to the world". She also loves to play games and play chase. She is helpful to the younger kids and shares toys with them. She would love to find her family!


Miles is an adorable 5 1/2 year old boy from China with possible Morquio syndrome. He loves music, and is a very happy boy, who loves to watch cartoons with his friends. He does have some medical delays, and he needs to find his family!


"Dash" is one cute little boy! He's 6 years old, from China, and has possible Diastrophic Dysplasia or SED.   He is listed as having arthrogryposis, but we think he could have dwarfism. He speaks well, and is already trying to walk even though he has club feet. What we know for sure is that he's adorable!



Violet (or Gracie) is a 6 year old girl who gets along with other children and loves to play games. She can run very fast, has great self-care, and is extroverted with people she knows. She has Chromosome 15 Ring syndrome, which is quite rare but does involve short stature. She definitely wants to find her family!


 This little guy had a family, but now he's on the list. He is 6 years old and is reportedly a happy young man. I do not have any updated pictures right now, unfortunately. He has suspected achondroplasia.


Kaelyn is 6 years old and is from India.  She has achondroplasia and would love to find her family!


Gregory is 6 years old and is from China. He has an unknown diagnosis, but we are thinking right now that it may be in the Russell Silver category. He is described as being very cheerful, and loves having fun. He would love to find his family!

"Avery" is 8 1/2 years old, and is from the US now, after being adopted from an Asian country. She needs to find a family where she is the youngest child, and if she were to have siblings, they should be older than 11 years old. She is very smart, and loves to draw and paint. Avery can walk around at home, but does use a wheelchair to get around at school. Because of different state laws, Avery cannot be placed with a family in CT, MA, MO, NY or DE. She would love to find her family super fast !

This is Devin. He is from China, and is described as amazingly smart - very math oriented. Unfortunately, Devin isn't able to attend school because he has OI, and is blocked from pursuing an education. He is 9 1/2 years old and is described as being socially engaging. A visitor who had met Devin says that when she read a book with her, he leaned in so their heads touched - he needs the affection and love of a family very badly. We are hoping that Devin finds the love he deserves in his new family very, very soon.  He has been on our list for 2 1/2 years.

Stellan is a smart young man from China who is 11 years old and has Morquio (MPS). He is a "model student" who loves not only language, but acting as well! He is polite and respectful, and loves to draw, write, sing, and dance. He's described as being outgoing, active, positive and brave. He sounds like a tremendous boy who just needs a family!  He has a $4000 grant!!!

BACK ON THE LIST. We will do everything we can to find this handsome man a family. He did come to the Boston conference and got to experience the USA...and he desperately needs to come home to the love of a family, as well as some great medical care. This handsome young guy is 13 years old and has Diastrophic Dysplasia. He is from Latvia, and needs the process to be as fast as possible. Please share his story so he can come home ASAP.

URGENT - Elijah is 13 years old, and now he only has one more year to be adopted before he is no longer adoptable. He is from China, and he has celebral palsy, but along with his CP, he is much shorter than average. We think he may have a growth hormone deficiency, or something along those lines. He is described as having normal speech, and can walk when he holds onto something. He also gets along with everyone and really wants his family!


Oliver is a beautiful 13 year girl from Uganda with achondroplasia who lives in an orphanage. She has such a compelling story that I thought I would share it here.
"Oliver is a Little Person like her mother. Oliver is rejected by people because of her short stature, as is common in Uganda. Like her mother, Oliver has never gone to school or been given a chance to associate with people. Oliver's mother is now unable to walk and her grandparents are helpless." Oliver's grandfather brought her to the orphanage and hopes and prays for a better future for her. She would love to find her family, so that she can experience love and an education.
