Welcome Back, Alan!

Alan6

Here he comes again!  Previously, Alan had lived with a family in our Shantou foster care program but due to unforeseen circumstances, he had to return to the orphanage for some time.  Now sweet Alan is back in foster care, and we couldn’t be happier! Alan was featured in our LWB blog last winter (“Happy and Handsome Alan“) and since then, he has truly blossomed. Just imagine what he could do in a forever family — something for which four-year-old Alan has been waiting for several years. Read more.

Our Xinzhou foster care program in Jiangxi province has just received four new baby girls! How exciting to see this program growing and taking more little ones into foster care.  These baby girls are so new that we only have one photo of each of them, and they haven’t yet learned to smile for the camera.  But don’t worry — we’re sure that we’ll be seeing smiles and open eyes from them soon enough.

Daisy and Michael, Waiting Still

When there are so many children who are waiting to be matched with families each day, it is not uncommon for a child to be looked over a few times before the perfect family for them finally finds them.  Michael and Daisy are two such children. They have been waiting on the shared list for some time now and are currently in our education program in Chenzhou.  We are so excited to be able to share the news that their orphanage has agreed to WAIVE their orphanage donation fee for any families interested in adopting these children!

Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day

Today, we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. In the past few years, we have cheered as we have seen China submit adoption paperwork for more and more children with Down Syndrome.  These precious children now have the chance to live life as part of a loving family…a family who will help them to realize their true potential and love them for the wonderful people they are.

Luke and David: Brand New Adoption Grant Recipients!

The only way love can last a lifetime is if it’s unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather by the one choosing to love. ~Stephen Kendrick

Luke4

At Love Without Boundaries, we wish for every child to have the unconditional love that they deserve. To make this wish a reality, we offer adoption assistance grants when possible.  Adoption carries a large price tag, and we know that every little bit can help a family’s dreams of adopting a reality.
