A $20,000 Adoption Assistance Grant for Ifan

Thanks to the amazing generosity of someone who really wants Ifan to finally be chosen and have a family of his own, we can announce that this wonderful 12-year-old now has a $20,000 Adoption Assistance grant towards his adoption expenses!

For families in the U.S. who can claim the adoption tax credit, this means there should be no financial barriers for a loving and committed family to make Ifan their son.

We are overjoyed to see the support for this boy we have loved since he was a baby.  Ifan lived in our foster care program for years until his orphanage recalled him to their care.

For those of you who may not know Ifan, we wanted to share a little photo gallery of our favorite shots of him over the years:

We recently were able to view Ifan’s official adoption file and so sad to see it had not been updated for 7 years. Hopefully, current information will be added to his file very soon. In the meantime, anyone interested in learning more about how to adopt Ifan can contact our Adoption Advocacy Team at [email protected].

Please share the news of his adoption grant in the hopes that a family for Ifan will be found at last before he turns 14!

Love Without Boundaries proudly advocates for adoption but is not an adoption agency. We invite you to contact [email protected] with questions about a child we have featured and encourage you to contact your adoption agency for more information about China’s Waiting Child Program.

    What a beautiful young man Ifan is! I adopted two boys, ages 12 & 13 from China four years ago this month. What a blessing they have been!! I highly recommend adopting older children as they are so fun to talk to, listen to, and laugh with daily. My sons are smart and work so hard in school. They make mostly A’s with 1-2 B’s each semester. They amaze me. I know adoption can be expensive but this $20k grant covers so much of the cost. A sign from God that you, yes YOU, can be the parent of this older kid. Don’t hesitate as time is important and he will age out on his 14th birthday. Email LWB today. 🙂
