In honor of National Adoption Month, we would like to shine the spotlight on some beautiful children in our programs who have been waiting for families of their own for far, far too long. Please share this blog far and wide in the hopes that their photos and stories will touch the hearts of family looking to grow their family through adoption! Read more.
The last time we wrote about Victor (in “V is for Victor“), he was timid and seemed a bit sad. When a stranger was pointing a camera at him trying to get a good photo, he had a difficult time staying calm and we saw an anxious little boy. Well, just look at him now, celebrating his fourth birthday right in the midst of all of the other kids at LWB’s Believe in Me School in Changzhi!
Ben is thirteen which makes him very close to ageing out and no longer being eligible for adoption. There is one final push in place to see if a family can be found for this boy who is beloved by all who meet him. His orphanage has agreed to waive the entire donation, and an extremely generous adoption grant has been added to the $2,000 LWB grant already in place. Read more.
John is a child whom many of us have watched grow up. Part of our foster care program in Anhui since 2008, we have seen monthly reports on him for many years, and LWB volunteers have met with him on numerous occasions when they visited his village. He has truly grown into a boy who is full of fun! John has been on the shared list for several years now, and he also is the recipient of an adoption assistance grant. Boys are typically chosen for adoption less frequently than girls (see Amy Eldridge’s blog post, “The Adoption of Boys“). Despite this, and despite the fact that with each passing year John’s chances of being adopted become slimmer, we hold onto hope that an incredible family is out there for this special boy.
