Catching Up with the Kids in Sanmenxia Foster Care

Foster care allows orphaned children to live in a family setting as opposed to institutional care. In our foster care program in Sanmenxia, Henan province, these children are integrated into the lives of the families they live with while they wait for permanent families of their own.

Final Day of the Hefei Cardiac Exchange

On their final day in Hefei, the doctors had a wonderful visit and discussion with the cardiac staff of Anhui Children’s Hospital (ACH). LWB has worked with ACH for over 13 years, and two of our cleft surgery exchanges were held here. Anhui Children’s Hospital cares for many of the babies from our Healing Home program, and we always know they will get excellent, compassionate care. Incredibly, this hospital sees over one million patients per year!

A Visit to Lanzhou Foster Care

Lanzhou, my final destination, was more than a hop, skip and a jump away from Guizhou where Cindy and I had visited our two foster care programs in Tongren and Qiandongnan. A long narrow city with the Yellow River running through it, Lanzhou is the capital of Gansu province in the northwest of China. To my surprise, the airport was more than 70 kilometers (40+miles) out of the city center where Cindy and I were staying. As we were driven along the relatively new highway I gazed out at a very different landscape flashing by – dry, brown, sparsely vegetated and hilly. I thought about the fact that we were very close to the Gobi desert, Mongolia, Tibet and Arunachal Pradesh. What would the next few days hold in store?

A Visit to Qiandongnan Foster Care

‘Pack light’. As I ascended the steep steps in my heeled boots to our first foster family home in Qiandongnan, I was beginning to regret my footwear decision. The concrete steps were of uneven height, and no sooner did we get to the top of one flight then there was a corner and another flight of similar steps ascending ever upwards. It was with a sigh of relief that we walked along the front of a small apartment building and I was told that this was where the two families fostering Lewis, Chandler, Hanna and Clyde lived — in fact, all on the same floor. Knowing that we were almost there, the last flights of internal stairs in the building were a breeze. I just wanted to meet the children.

Renewal: Cambodia Foster Care

Spring is here in many parts of the world, and in this season, it’s common to think about new life, new beginnings, and renewing ourselves. I saw a quote for springtime by Bernie Siegel that says, “If you watch how nature deals with adversity, continually renewing itself, you can’t help but learn.” I sat and meditated on the word ‘renew’ and all that means to me, and I couldn’t help but think about LWB and the children in our foster care programs. Each one of them is being renewed or starting over again. The reasons they need a new start all vary, but the commonality is that they all now have a chance to grow and learn from their adversity. I am so glad we can play a part in their transformations by providing them safety, nutrition, education, and love.
