Announcing LWB’s New Qiandongnan Foster Care Program!

It is with great pleasure that the LWB Foster Care Team announces our brand new foster care program in Guizhou province. We are delighted to be opening a new program in Qiandongnan for initially ten children. In March 2011, LWB’s Executive Director Amy Eldridge and Foster Care Director Arlene Howard traveled to Guizhou (see our blog series which culminated in “Journey to Guizhou — Reflections”) and visited several orphanages in this province. Qiangdongnan felt like the right place to start our newest program, and the staff there were very eager to partner with us. We have now identified ten children for this program who range in age from just under a year to nearly nine years old, most of whom have some sort of medical need.

Please read on and allow us introduce these ten beautiful children to you. It is our wish that the first sponsor to sign up to support each child choose the English name of the child. For now, we will simply allocate a program number to each child. It will be exciting for us to see the names of each of these children appear as they are sponsored, and even more thrilling to get to know each of them better!

We have seen that foster care in poor, rural areas can change lives in amazing ways. The children in foster care have individual care and attention that cannot be provided in an institution. Their physical needs are met, and their emotional health is supported and fostered through loving interactions with foster parents. The children will have the best opportunity to grow and develop in a family setting. They can be part of the local community, hopefully attend school, and have a much smaller chance of attachment difficulties upon adoption.

We invite you to get involved with our exciting new venture in Guizhou on the ground floor. Sponsorship costs $35 a month per child, and each sponsor will get a report and photos of their child EVERY MONTH to see how their children are growing, developing and blossoming. To sponsor a child within our new Qiandongnan foster care program, please click on one of the links above and help us give names — and more importantly, hope — to each one of these precious children!

    Just got your email on LWB update on the orphanage being set up! Praise God! We realize that on these children, you all are asking for sponsors, are any of them available for adoption or paper ready for that?

    We will be working with the orphanage to get adoption paperwork started and filed for all of the kids in the Qiandongnan foster care program. Hopefully things will move quickly in the province, and many children will be on the shared list by fall…so please stay tuned!

    When I click on the link under each childs picture I get a file error message. Am I doing something wrong? Are these children still available for sponsoring? Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks.
