He fractured his pelvis but fortunately avoided more serious injury.  For an active-five-year-old boy, however, treatment for his pelvis requires him to remain in the hospital for several weeks without moving! Read more.

Luke: Ready for Heart Surgery — and a Family, Too!

Luke is seven years old and is waiting for his forever family to find him!

Luke Huainan 2015

Since 2010, Luke has been a student in our education program in Huainan. Teachers recently noticed that Luke has had trouble catching his breath, and his lips turn blue when it’s cold. We arranged for him to be evaluated at Hefei Cardiac Hospital, and they determined he needed heart surgery right away.  The Tet spells he was having could prove to be fatal if left untreated.

Two Happily Ever Afters

Once upon a time, we dreamed of growing our family through adoption.


We fell in love at first sight with a little girl LWB supporters may know as “Amanda”. Upon seeing this photo and a video of her, we immediately asked to lock her file. We didn’t even bother to have her medicals reviewed. She was our daughter, and we knew it the second that we saw her. Read more.

The Boys Who Wait in 2015

Despite the misconception that Chinese orphanages are filled with girls, approximately 75% of the orphaned children in China waiting for families are boys.

Four Ways to Celebrate National Adoption Month

This November, please join us in celebrating National Adoption Month!

Whether we know and love someone who is adopted, are ourselves an adoptee, or have been privileged to have adopted a son or daughter ourselves, many of us have been touched by adoption. While Love Without Boundaries is not an adoption agency, adoption is something we celebrate and advocate for daily since the majority of children we have the privilege of working with are among the thousands of children in China currently without families of their own.

Finding Patrick

In April of 2014, I was meeting with officials at an orphanage in Anhui province when a staff member ran into our room.  She explained that a newborn baby had just been found by the police and that the little boy was in need of emergency medical care.

We were about two hours from Anhui Children’s Hospital and the skilled surgeons there, and so we immediately offered to drive the baby to Hefei so he could get the operation he needed to survive. Read more.

Wisdom Wednesday: Why Don’t More Foster Families Adopt?

Every month we are fortunate to receive many wonderful photos of foster children in our programs getting lots of love from their foster parents. These images bring a big smile to our faces and receive many positive comments by those who view them. However, sometimes these photos raise this question: “If the foster family loves the child so much, why don’t they just adopt him?”

All About Aaron

As I general rule of thumb, I try to stay away from describing children with words that only point out their physical attractiveness. I just want to find something deeper in them and for them to read about themselves in the future, and for them to see something more than a cute face.  But when I saw this photo of Aaron – all I could think was how darn handsome and ADORABLE he is! Doesn’t this four-year-old face just melt your heart?!  I know I cannot be the only one.
