Willetha entered LWB’s Sanmenxia Foster Care Program just after her first birthday. She grew by leaps and bounds within a very short time of being with her foster family! Not only did she begin to crawl, but she began climbing on furniture and attempting to stand independently. Living with her loving foster family allowed her to get constant attention and guidance, especially from her foster mother who remains home with her during the day. Read more.

When one of LWB’s China Medical Directors is asked to help a child with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) it is just the first step in a long journey of hope through healing.
Our first step is to determine the type of CHD. There are more than 40 different types of heart defects with a range of severity for each case. LWB’s Medical team gets evaluations in China as well as from a team of specialists on our Medical Advisory Board to determine what type of surgery the child will need and what other type of care they will require.

At the age of four, Joseph entered our Fuyang foster care program in Anhui in 2007. Over the past six years, it has been our bittersweet privilege to watch Joseph grow up — bittersweet because we would like nothing more than for him to find a forever family of his own. His amazingly sweet and happy demeanor and contagious smile make it a pleasure to be in his company.
Born with congenital club foot, three-year-old Diego joined LWB’s Foster Care Program when he was eleven months old. Living with his loving foster family provided him not only with security and stability but gave him the chance of receiving the continued daily treatment that he needed after corrective surgery.
Diego wore orthopedic braces for his feet every night for months, which he didn’t like too much at all. Some nights he managed to get them off, and once he even broke them. His wonderful foster mother never wavered in her care of him and made sure that he kept the devices on for the time needed for optimal results. Read more.
