To Whom it May Concern,
There used to be a portrait of a young girl for sale. Are there any more copies?
Yes! We are offering “Jia: A Portrait of Hope” for sale on our main website. Please visit http://www.lovewithoutboundaries.com/special_programs_jia.cfm for more information. Thank you so much for your interest.
We are adopting a little girl who is a student in one of your Believe in Me schools. We have found two pictures of her, labeled with an American name. We just wanted to know if she is aware of the American name that you gave her? We are considering giving her an American name, and wanted to use the one you had chosen if she was already familiar with it. Thank you.
The children in our “Believe In Me” schools are not aware of the western names we give them when talking about them publicly and to their sponsors. We use these to comply with the CCAA and the Hague Treaty to protect the child’s identity.
We wish you the very best of luck with your adoption and hope you will keep us informed as things progress!
I came across your website from a friend on facebook. Last August I lost my son before he was even born at 7.5 months pregnant. Looking at these children brings me joy… I feel like a mother who has no child to care for. I’m wondering if you do opportunities for volunteers to come abroad. I don’t speak Chinese, so I don’t know how realistic my thought is but I thought it would be worth a try.
Thanks for your interest! LWB occasionally sends teams of volunteers to China to work with orphaned children, but usually the people who travel are certified either in the medical field (such as doctors, nurses, or physical therapists) or in special education. If you have a degree in a field that could benefit one of our program areas, we would encourage you to fill out a volunteer application online!
There are several groups who do allow short term volunteers to help with the children in their care. Some suggestions for groups to contact include:
The Starfish Foster Home in XiAn http://www.thestarfishfosterhome.org/dailyneeds.aspx and
Our Chinese Daughters Foundation in Beijing http://www.ocdf.org/volunteerchina/
Although this is is an issue primarily concerning Western countries, not China, I wonder if you would be interested in doing a post on bone marrow donations. Ethnic Asians, like all non-Caucasians, are under-represented in the donor registries, which makes it hard to find matches for Asian patients who need bone marrow or stem cell transplants. I recently discovered this via http://www.matchdevan.com/home.
We just returned home with our 2 daughters from Luoyang SWI in Henan Province. We are hoping you might have some information on the girls. Our youngest is Dang Qing Yun (3) birthdate 6-22-07 and our oldest Dang Yali (8) birthdate 4-4-02. Please contact me if you have info. Thank you
Congratulations on your new daughters! You can visit the following link to request information on children who were in an LWB program prior to their adoption: http://www.lovewithoutboundaries.com/RequestforChildInfo.cfm
Is there any way to petition a child who has aged out of the system? I have been told that this has happened before. Is so, how would we go about doing that?
I have wanted to adopt for a long time and would like to know more about the adoption process. Where can I find more information?
Any word on if Ruby was ever adopted? Rumor had it she was, but some of us on the advocate for WC listserv were inquiring. Thanks!
Thanks for checking in on Ruby. To the best of our knowledge, a family is pursuing her adoption at this time, and we are very excited for her!
great news to hear. I’m praying for all the orphans, but her smile just wrapped around my heart. I hope great things happen for her and that she gets that family to call her own!
We adopted our daughter Guang Bai Ying July 2009 who is 6 years old now. We are trying to find younger pictures of her, and someone suggested I try here. She was placed in the Social Welfare Institute of Guangzhou City. Her records show she did have hand sugeries. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Hi Jamey! Please visit our Request for Child Information link to complete our request for child information form. We will then check our records to see if perhaps we helped your daughter. If we did, we will forward any photos or information we have.
A friend works with a company who provides nutrition to orphanages in Mexico and other countries. She is interested in talking with you. What email should she use?
We are LSC on our 2yr old son at Guiyang CWI. We have had our agency trying to contact the orphanage but they are unable to get a response. We are waiting to get an update or at least pics since the only pics we have are from when he was 11 mos. Do you have any contacts there?
Hello we wold love to sponser one of the new children but don’t care which one and would love the privilege of naming one….are there any left to name and sponsor?? thank so much!
I am praying that you will receive this email and respond to it. I have looked at your site and found a child that I MUST find more info on. I would love to know that she was adopted, but if not where is she now. Thank you so much for your time….her name is Julia and she was a heart baby. The last pic I can find is 5/10 and she was at heartbridge.
I have been following a few of your little girls. Thanks for the update on Lindsay. Is she or Delyth available for adoption?
Thank you for all the wonderful work you do!
trying to find out more info on Peng. His heart problem. I want to see if we can adopt him and if he would be a good fit for my family. I have an 8 and 2 yr old now. please contact me the adoption assistance@ lwbmail did not work thanks. E Wheeless
I would love to adopt a baby, but i do not know where to start. We found out yesterday that we would not be able to have our own baby due to complications. Can someone please help me in this matter.
I’ve forwarded your email to our Adoption Assistance volunteers so that they can help you get started. You can also contact them directly at [email protected]. Best of luck to you!
Has there been any updates on “endearing jonathan”? I’ve been thinking about him, since I saw your blog post Aug2010.
As far as we know, “Endearing Jonathan” is still waiting on the shared list to be chosen by a family!
Why does the Sept. 7 post about Xing Xing not show here?
What is the process to adopt a child featured on the blog? I am in Canada.
Norma, we removed the post as Xing Xing is not currently a part of the Waiting Child Program. Thank you for asking about her.
Hello Norma! Since you are in Canada, we would advise you to begin talking with an adoption agency in Canada. They could then tell you if they are utilizing the Waiting Child Program. Please feel free to contact our Adoption Assistance coordinators at [email protected] and they can try to give you more specific advice.
I tried to leave a comment on the 1/25/2012 post about my daughter “Kathryn” but the comment box was diabled I just wanted to let you know that I brought “Kathryn” home on January 4, 2013, our adoption day was 12/25/2012. I just came back to read the LWB blog entry for a post I was writing for my own blog and was struck by the Deepak Chopra quote I guess I didn’t see or skimmed over before. I sponsored “Kathryn” in the BIM school and kept her update photos pinned to our family bulletin board above the kitchen table long after LWB let me know that she had been allowed to go to public school. It was an LWB volunteer that mentioned to me by email last year that “Kathryn” had a file at the CCCWA and was available for international placement. I’m not a devotee of Deepak Chopra, but the quote attributed to him in the blog post and your choice of that quote in reference to “Kathryn” are uncanny. If LWB hadn’t assigned her to me as her BIM sposor, if LWB hadn’t opened that door for her, she would not be here with her family. Thank you for opening the door that led her down the path to me.
OMG I just read a msg someone wanting to know if Ruby was adopted. Is it my Ruby???? She is doing great. She is a smart little girl and full of life. Please drop me a line and I will send you our blog.
Hello, I was wondering if Arya from the 1/28/13 post is eligible for international adoption, or if she has already been placed with a forever family. Her inquisitive eyes and beautiful face just touched our hearts. We are currently working with an agency and in process. However, if Arya is not eligible for international adoption, we will pray for her, and all these other angels you are helping, that they continue to get better and find their forever families. I did not know about your organization until we started this process, and I think the work you do is amazing, and such a blessing! Thank you!
Can you tell me who will be doing Yong’s facial surgery and where?
Yong’s surgery will be led by Dr. Mark Urata, who is head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. We are so thankful that they have agreed to take on his very complex surgery.
We were wondering if you were able to purchase all the bicycles that were needed for the Guizhou children? I was reading some of your older posts and my 8 year old son saw it. He immediately wanted to be a part of that project and wanted to give his savings to help by a bicycle if they are still needed. Thank you for letting us know!
Hi…I am “Leo’s” new mommy! We received official PA yesterday for this little lovebug with the broken heart. We were immediately drawn to him thinking that we were meant to advocate for him. But no…we are his family! His daddy picked his American name for him (Benjamin Li) and he has two brothers (1 homegrown and 1 adopted domestically) and two sisters (1 homegrown and 1 adopted from China). We are a family that is VERY musical, involved in church and theatre (stage) and Daddy works for a healthcare non-profit company. Without us realizing it, God was preparing us to be his parents long ago. We absolutely cannot wait to bring him home. I will be working at breakneck speed to get this pushed through as quickly as possible!
We are just starting the adoption process for China through Holt International. We are interested in a little girl and just came across your post on Meigan. Is she still in need of a family? If she is, we would be interested in more information. Thanks!
Hello. I am the troop leader for a girl scout cadette troop in Florida thatis very interested in doing a service project for LWB. all if our girls are adopted from China so rhey understand the needs. Do you have any suggestions for projects? Thanks!
Hi, I noticed that the post on Ben finding a family has disappeared. Did something happen?
I am in love with giggly Collin your 2012 picture of the year. I suspect he is now about 2 years old? Do you have a recent picture of him? How is he? Did he get adopted? I am a pediatric nurse in Texas for over 24 years and provide care to medically fragile children in home health versus in a hospital. I just love those happy smiles and can imagine him with a mouth full of teeth.
Thanks for asking about Colin from our Top Ten Photos of 2012! We just checked, and he was adopted this past February. We’re very happy for this giggly boy!
I am in love with Joel, and want so desperately to adopt him, please tell me how he can be mine.
Is there updated information about Robin and Clyde in Kaili? I don’t know when adoption will be an option for our family but I would love to advocate for them to find a family.
Hi…I have been to Tibet and would like to help the children.I see that you had a program providing coats to the children. Is there a website to get information?
