PIC BY PRISCILLA MORSE / CATERS NEWS – (PICTURED: Eight year old Ryan weighed just 8lbs last year, following his adoption he has put on 15lbs in just over a year) – A neglected orphan who weighed 8lbs after being starved for seven years has made a miraculous recovery following adoption. At seven-years-old Ryan Morse had not put on weight or grown since birth and his fragile body was covered in hair due to starvation. Despite best efforts from care givers in his orphanage in Bulgaria, the little boy was close to death. However, in 2015, when Priscilla Morse saw the heart-breaking photos of the emancipated boy on Facebook she knew she had to save him. In October last year, Priscilla was able to bring Ryan back to her home in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Now the eight-year-old has gained 15lbs in 13 months and is making gradual improvements after being adopted by the loving family.
