Family Adopts Child Near Death And Now He Is Completely Unrecognizable

When Priscilla Morse was browsing through Facebook in 2015, she and her husband David already had four children of their own and were living in the U.S. She came across a photo of a 7-year-old Bulgarian orphan with several severe medical conditions on her newsfeed and, despite it being a crazy and seemingly irrational decision, Priscilla decided that her family was going to welcome him into their home and save his life.

The ill boy was Ryan and he lived in Bulgaria, meaning the Morse family would have to endure a foreign adoption process before they could bring him home to help. After they were cleared to adopt him, Priscilla went alone to Bulgaria and brought Ryan back to America. The family immediately had him tested thoroughly to determine what his ailments were, and the results were less than promising.
