Learning About Uganda Together

As I imagine is the case with many of you who support Love Without Boundaries, I first became aware of LWB when we adopted my youngest daughter from China. They helped to fund her heart surgery while she was a baby in China, and once we brought her home, they provided us with priceless pictures of her.

I wanted to give back to this organization who had given so much to us, and so I have been a volunteer with LWB’s Education program for the past couple years, helping administer the Believe in Me schools. Read more.

In addition to working with individual families in need there, we have helped purchase wool for winter coats, thick woolen blankets and mattresses, and traditional Tibetan robes to protect against the harsh winter temperatures and windy conditions. Read more.

Joanna’s Beginning

A new baby is like the beginning of all things: wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. ~Eda J. Leshan

I remembered this quote last Friday, when my newest grandson was born into the world.  Baby Eldridge is doing well now, after a few days in the NICU under the bilirubin lights for severe jaundice. He should be discharged later today to go home with his very proud parents. Just a day or so after his birth, a tiny baby girl came into the world as well, this time in China, and her beginning was certainly different than my grandson’s.

An orphanage in Anhui called us last weekend about a newborn they had just received who was in trouble. Read more.

From Tragedy to Bright New Beginning

Have you ever heard a story so tragic that it’s hard to take it all in, to really conceive of all that you have heard? That’s how we felt when we first learned of Brycen.

Brycen is a teenage boy living in a small village in Uganda. One of our team members met Brycen by chance when she was interviewing prospective students for a new school project we are beginning in partnership with Childcare Uganda. Read more.

A Trip to the Hospital in Phnom Penh

When we were in Cambodia several weeks ago, we met some children in need of medical assistance. Last week, they traveled almost ten hours from their village to the capital of Phnom Penh to be evaluated at the hospital there.

Rachel and Sara were going to the capital to be evaluated for prosthetic eyes. Several years ago, Rachel, who is fifteen, was bit by an insect and subsequently lost her right eye due to infection. Read more.

Double Blessings: Sydney and Reagan

Earlier this year, Love Without Boundaries was contacted by an orphanage in rural Anhui, China, that had just admitted twin baby girls.


The tiny preemies had been found with a note saying their parents were unable to afford their medical care. Even as our hearts filled with sadness over the family’s enormous loss, we knew it was urgent to get the baby girls to the hospital. Thanks to our wonderful supporters, Sydney and Reagan’s journey of healing with LWB had begun. Read more.
