Baby Cuddling at Heartbridge

LWB’s Chief Administrative Executive Kelly Wolfe recently got to do something that many of us dream about:  she visited Heartbridge Healing Home in person for a session of baby-cuddling!

Since most of us won’t get the opportunity to do the same, we thought we’d take all of you on a little tour of Heartbridge and catch up with some of the darling children there. Read more.

Andrew: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Andrew FC intake 8.16

In August, seven-month-old Andrew became a graduate.  Not a graduate of a school, but a graduate of our Anhui Healing Home where he had been a resident for five months.  Andrew was born with a cleft lip and palate and lived at our healing home while preparing for his surgery and for several months after his cleft repair. We are thankful that Andrew was able to go from the nannies’ care directly into the arms of a loving foster family in Fuyang!

Just last week, an orphanage in Anhui contacted us about this sweet little guy named Xander. He had just come into their care at seven months old and was suffering from some kind of anorectal malformation.

Xander was immediately taken to the hospital, and doctors determined that he has a perineum fistula. Read more.

Chandler: Home At Last!

Not even a week after she was born, we first met Chandler. 

Chandler (1)

Chandler was born with complex heart disease. Shortly after her birth, she was taken to the Xiaoxian orphanage in northern Anhui province. LWB has a wonderful relationship with this orphanage, and the director called us right away to see if Chandler could be cared for in our Anhui Healing Home. When she arrived into our hands, she weighed just 3 kg. Read more.

Relief for Maci and Her Family

Our Unity Initiative was designed to help impoverished families remain together, despite the sometimes overwhelming costs of medical care for children needing surgeries and medical care.  A new family just learned of our Unity Initiative, and we are honored to have the opportunity to be able to help them get surgery for their daughter, Maci.

This family’s income is just $500 per year, and it is not exaggerating to state that they truly do not have money to spare. We can imagine how their hearts sank when they learned that their baby daughter had a heart defect that would require surgery. Read more

Selah: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Selah was born with a heart condition that required surgery, but before she was able to have the procedure, she developed pneumonia. Selah first needed time in the hospital to take medication and to recuperate.

When she was stronger, she then had heart surgery and she recovered well. At the beginning of May, little Selah joined our Anhui Healing Home weighing just under ten pounds. Read more.
