Unforgettable Aimee

Aimeegarden
I had the pleasure of meeting Aimee during the Cleft Exchange last April in Kaifeng. Aimee and another child from her orphanage in Guangdong Province, Harley, had such complex cleft lips that flying them to Kaifeng for surgery with our amazing doctors was the best thing for them. Aimee, at five years old, had waited a long time for their chance at surgery, and had seen her friends come back with repaired cleft lips, and then leave with adoptive families.  Aimee is still waiting to be chosen for adoption, and we hope that this unforgettable girl will be able to know the love of a forever family one day soon.

Aaron turns four this month! He is one of the few children we know of who has been a part of each of LWB’s five program areas, and as a result we have quite a few photos and reports on this adorable boy. Since his adoption file is ready and with an agency, we thought it would be the perfect time to highlight Aaron through the years. Read more.

Helping Create New Smiles in Gansu

The opening of a new Believe In Me education program at the Qingyang orphanage in northern Gansu Province also led to us assisting with medical care for some of their children.  This orphanage is home to many children with cleft lip and palate, and we had just recently connected with a physician in Xi’An who specializes in helping kids with this medical need.
