Facebook can be a cesspool of gossip and other nonsense, but it can also be a place where miracles happen.

In 2015, Priscilla Morse was scrolling through her newsfeed when she saw a photo of an emaciated Bulgarian orphan named Ryan. She immediately decided to save his life.

Priscilla and her husband David were already the parents of four children, but that didn’t stop them from following their hearts and seeking out Ryan. They knew he was meant to be their son, and they his parents.

When Priscilla picked up Ryan in Bulgaria, he weighed just nine pounds. At first, doctors back in America didn’t believe that the tiny child was seven years old.


In addition to being severely malnourished, Ryan was diagnosed dwarfism, scoliosis, cerebral palsy, and clubfoot. His body had also grown dark hair in an effort to keep him warm. Everyone told Priscilla to prepare herself for his early death.

To everyone’s surprise, Ryan didn’t die. Slowly but surely, he started to show signs of progress. He even began to smile!

His road to recovery hasn’t been easy. There have been many hospital visits and sleepless nights full of worry for the Morses.

But this amazing family has stuck together every step of the way.

Today, Ryan looks like a completely different child. What a difference love, care, and cuddles can make!

Priscilla said, “The skeletal near death child crying in pain…he doesn’t exist anymore. He’s gone forever and he’s been replaced with a chubby, giggly, happy boy who loves kisses and tickles. He rolls all over and can be a naughty little butterball!”

Ryan now weighs 23 pounds. While he’s certainly much healthier, his battle isn’t over yet. In the next few months, he’ll receive spinal surgery to straighten his back.

Ryan now weighs 23 pounds. While he's certainly much healthier, his battle isn't over yet. In the next few months, he'll receive spinal surgery to straighten his back.

For now, though, the happy, adorable boy is content to just enjoy his family.

    Since the Lord Jesus helped place the young child in the hands of a loving prayer given family, the substance or spirit/soul of this child grew for the better. Hopefully he will become a very important leader in Humanity. Grace, Mercy and Honor will PRAISE this family forever or at least rising skills will allow.
