The Story

Dear Family and Friends,
If you haven’t heard, the DeFranco Family is adopting again! This time we are bringing home a young boy named Zhong’ao. He has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, the same condition as our daughter Xiao. He is currently living in an orphanage in China where he has waited nearly 9 years for a family to call his own.

All 5 of the DeFranco Children have their hearts set on bringing their brother, Zhong’ao home and have offered to have a Lemonade Sale to raise the money to do so. Obviously, they are not going to sell 50,000 glasses of lemonade. So we are asking you to consider helping them. Their “Lemonade Sale” is going to be a community-wide family event with food, entertainment, a Chinese auction and lots of fun activities for kids all for FREE! Lemonade and Chinese Auction tickets will be sold at the event to raise money for the adoption.
Monetary donations can be also be made here.

Please consider joining our family on this amazing journey of bringing Zhong’ao home. Be a part of his story!
Thank you,
Dustin and Heather DeFranco

Another big step completed today... we headed to Monroeville, PA to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office to have our biometrics (finger prints) taken. This is part of the background check done by the US when adopting internationally. Once this approval is granted, we will be able to move on to the next step in the process. USCIS is averaging 60 days to grant this approval.

Today is Zhong’Ao’ 9th Birthday! I recently connected with a missionary who spent some time with him this past Fall...she said that Zhong'Ao talked about making friends over the years and having to tell each goodbye as they were adopted and that he hopes his turn for a family will be soon…I am pretty sure I know what he will be wishing for this birthday. If you are reading this, consider donating just $9 TODAY... a dollar for each birthday he has spent without a family so that for his next birthday he is surrounded by both family and friends.
