Offers are coming in from around the world to adopt a malnourished Brooklyn boy who was found with his dead mother.

Police found the 4-year-old Tuesday in Union, New Jersey, inside his grandmother's apartment with the body of his mother, 38-year-old Kiana Workman.

Workman had been dead several days, and autopsy results are pending.

The boy weighed 26 pounds, but officials say he should have weighed at least 40.

Police say he wasn't strong enough to open the refrigerator, and they say he told them that he'd been eating from a bag of sugar.

He's currently being treated at a hospital.
