The Home Stretch for Tim

Many of you have followed the story of Tim, a wonderful young man who grew up in the Kaifeng orphanage in Henan province. When LWB volunteers first met Tim back in 2006, he was just 14 years old. He became part of our education program, and we learned very quickly just what a wonderful student he was.

Prayers for Luna

Last month we learned about a baby from southern China with complex heart issues. Her orphanage had arranged for her to be seen in Beijing, but the surgeons there felt the little girl was inoperable, and so with that very sad diagnosis, they sent her back home.

LWB is fortunate to partner regularly with the Children’s Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai, and so we offered to have Luna seen by the expert heart surgeons there. She arrived to the hospital extremely weak, struggling to feed because even that simple act would exhaust her. Read more.

The Boys Who Wait in 2015

Despite the misconception that Chinese orphanages are filled with girls, approximately 75% of the orphaned children in China waiting for families are boys.

We think so highly of the boys in our programs and want to share those who continue to wait to be chosen by a family. Some of these boys have been waiting for years. Read more.

School Snacks: More Than Just a Treat

The dictionary says that a snack is a small portion of food eaten between meals.  Here in the U.S., we often think of a snack as a pleasant treat – cookies or chips – something we enjoy but don’t really need.

The “snacks” served to the children attending our Believe in Me orphanage schools in China are probably misnamed. Read more.
