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

Introducing the adorable Harlow, who we think may have achondroplasia! We don't have any files on her yet, but she is described as being a shy, quiet little girl who smiles easily. She is 2 years old, and lives in China. She would love to find her family!

Sylvia is an adorable 2 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!

Kelby is  3 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!

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!

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 1/2  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 would love to find her family!

lvie and Elsie are sisters who live in Eastern Europe. They have suspected Morquio dwarfism, and are five and 6 years old. Elsie, who is 5 years old, is shy but does express her ideas.

Noah, the boy on the left, has Robinow syndrome and is around 6 years old. He lives in China with his best friend Mason. Mason is deaf, and Noah is considered Mason's helper - they have their own special way of communicating. They would like to be adopted together, but if not, they would love to be able to stay in touch with each other because of their incredible bond. They both would love to find their family!
