One big change in any family’s life when they welcome a child is the sheer amount of stuff that comes with that child.
Bottles, diapers, clothing, toys, and equipment of every shape and size require a lot of storage space. LWB’s Anhui Healing Home (AHH) has been caring for babies since 2008. This healing home is set up in a cozy home-like setting with three bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen. Read more.
LWB’s Education Program has many students who are making great progress, thanks to the opportunities given to them by their sponsors. We would like to introduce you to and brag about three of our preschool students: Joshua, Brian Christopher, and Will.

I was blessed to be in the delivery room, and at one point I stood back in reverence thinking about the countless women through the ages who have gone through the ritual of labor to bring new life into the world.
When Naomi was born, the elation in the room was unmistakable. There were tears of joy, laughter and smiles – and when I was handed my granddaughter for the first time, I was filled with wonder at just how tiny she was.
