He sent an example of long-distance adoption, I have found in a site, but unfortunately this association do not have a native child.

What is long distance adoption?
Long distance adoption is an action of solidarity that guarantees to the minors of the poor countries and to their families an economical help, so that they may receive the primary goods, education and the medical care they need.
Long distance adoption, therefore, puts the families in condition to take care of their children and to support the necessary expenditures for their growth, avoiding that, under the pressure of the economical difficulties, the familiar unit is disintegrated.
In September 1998 the Community of Sant'Egidio started a program of long distance adoption. A secretariat was created to take care of this programme to support to children.

What does it provide?
Long distance adoption provides support to various aspects of the life of the child:
Health (medical care and purchase of medicines)
School (payment of school fees and of educational materials)
Nutrition, clothing, toys and economical support to the whole familiar unit.

Who are the children to be adopted?
They are children in difficulty, who, for various reasons cannot be supported by their families. This is why they need an "adopting" family that, at least from afar, mey ensure the means necessary for growing, for having proper health care, studying and entering the society.

How long does a long distance adoption last?
Long distance adoption has not a time duration within which to be concluded. In this it is really like an adoption: it can last until the child has grown up and became adult, in a position to maintain himself autonomously. Nevertheless at any time it is possible to withdraw from the adoption, giving a notice of three months so as to allow to entrust the child to another adopter.
