Yago’s Chance for a New Life

It was 2011, and Yago had just entered our Believe in Me School in Changzhi. We knew then that he needed special care for his leg.


Over the years, however, we have learned through consulting with experts that the best opportunity for Yago to receive the ongoing care that he needs for his condition is to be cared for by a family able to thoroughly address and consistently manage his care.


Yago has lymphedema, which is swelling that generally occurs in an arm or a leg.  In Yago’s case, it impacts his right leg only.

This young man has touched so many, we think he will touch you as well!


Check out these recent videos of Yago dribbling a basketball and riding his bike!

Now ten years old, Yago is an active boy.




He also is a serious student, working hard to learn at home since he is unable to attend school in China due to his lymphedema.




While there is no cure for lymphedema, it can be controlled. The best chance at quality care for Yago’s leg would be for him to join a family who is wiling to learn about the best ways to manage lymphedema and help him to care for his leg.


If you are interested in learning more about lymphedema, we hope you will read on via this article from the Mayo Clinic.

LWB is honored to offer an Adoption Assistance Grant of $4,000 which might help a family with the ability to care for Yago to adopt him, to give a chance at a healthy life and a chance at going back to his studies and excelling.  You can read more about this grant in Yago’s past blog, “Yahoo! $4,000 for Yago“.

Please spread the word about this amazing boy and the adoption assistance grant available to any family who adopts him!  Interested families should contact [email protected] for more information.

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.
