A Life for Christopher

Posted by Marcy Thompson WRTL Intern on

Hi everyone, I'm Marcy, Wisconsin Right to Life Summer intern! I wanted to share with you all the wonderful adoption story of my friends, the Collicott family:

In 2014, Lynda Collicott saw this video of Christopher and knew she was being called to bring this little boy home.

Christopher was from Bulgaria, and weighed a mere 10 lbs 2 oz and was 29 inches long when he was adopted shortly before his 6th birthday. Having several special needs, he was ignored and neglected in the orphanage, barely fed and not cared for. When the Collicotts adopted him, he was unfamiliar with being held and would poke himself in the neck to pass the time, having never had anything else to do.

He was adopted just over six months ago on January 18th. Since then, he has made remarkable progress. 

(Pictured: Christopher's before-and-after photo after 6 months with the Collicotts)

He now weighs nearly twice the weight when he was adopted, 20 lbs 3 oz, and is 33 inches long. Now in a loving family, he enjoys interacting with people, wants to be held, and can roll over on his own. His parents run the Facebook page “A Life For Christopher” where you can follow him on his journey.

Just remember, if anyone says pro-lifers don't care about kids after they're born, just think of the Collicott family. Adoption truly saves lives!
