Jose, Lover of Life

Several years ago, we received a call about a newly-found little boy who was born with cleft lip. I remember seeing his first photo thinking he had some pretty wonderful hair, and I was so thankful when he was able to be moved to our Anhui Healing Home right away for nurturing care.

Face to Face with Love

My husband and I adopted our daughter from Anhui Province last month.  This was our second adoption trip to China, and an important part for me was meeting the babies that I know so well through my role as Anhui Healing Home (AHH) Coordinator. Read more.

Megan

Since 2005 when she was just a baby, Megan has been a resident of our foster care program. Like any child in our programs, we had dreams for Megan that included seeing her in the arms of her forever family. However, we did not know that her adoption file was available until this past week. We’re so excited that Megan too will have her chance to have a family of her own!

When she was still an infant, Megan was matched with a family.  However, that potential placement was disrupted prior to finalization when clear signs of cerebral palsy were discovered. Now nine years old, we have watched her grow up from her baby days to the beautiful girl that she is now. Read more.

Home Improvement

One big change in any family’s life when they welcome a child is the sheer amount of stuff that comes with that child.

Leo: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Leo arrived to LWB’s Anhui Healing Home (AHH) weighing just 2.9 kg (6.4 lb) at one month old. His heart defect caused him to be weary from simple acts of eating or interacting for short periods of time.

His loving nannies at AHH worked with him by feeding him nutritious formula in smaller, more frequent doses, which contributed to his steady weight gain.

Bravo to Bethel

It always warms our hearts when organizations in China pull together to help kids in need.

Over the past year, three children with vision issues who were previously in LWB programs have moved  to the care of Bethel China. Bethel provides highly specialized care for children with vision issues of all severities in a loving, home-like environment. We shared the stories of these three kids shortly after they moved to Bethel. We recently received an update, so we thought you might like to see how well these kids are doing. Read more.
