Zane’s Adoption Grant Just Doubled in Size!

When Zane was found as an infant, he had blue lips and breathing problems. A doctor told the nanny at his orphanage that he most likely would not live past five years old. Under the watchful and loving care of his nannies, Zane lived to five years old and beyond, but doctors still told them that his heart defect was too complicated for surgery. Yet still, Zane fought to survive. He was nine years old when he was noticed by our medical team, and LWB Spain raised the funds to provide him with surgery that healed his heart.

We were delighted to see Zane looking healthy and happy after this surgery and even more delighted to see that his orphanage filed his adoption paperwork and that he was on the shared list waiting for a family! LWB provided a $2,000 adoption assistance grant to help the family that pursued his adoption.

Yesterday’s blog, Lishui Families Give Back, featured Zane and mentioned that he was still waiting for his forever family. One of our generous donors read Zane’s story yesterday and was moved to double that adoption grant — making it now $4,000 towards his adoption expenses! Hopefully this will be the catalyst needed to help Zane’s forever family, whom we hope is out there somewhere, to know that this adorable boy is meant to be their son.

We have fallen in love with Zane just as much as his nannies in Zhejiang have. Who could resist his kind, sweet, courageous spirit? We ask all of our readers to share Zane’s story and the exciting news about his adoption assistance grant in the hope that his forever family will come forward!
