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! Read more.

What? It’s time to graduate already?
That’s right, Andrew! You and your buddies Walter and Henry from our healing homes program have grown and thrived and made us smile. As much as our healing home nannies and sponsors will miss you and your antics, we know that it’s time for you to graduate to the next chapter of your life: living with a foster family. Read more.
Every year in August, I think back to the day that I stood outside the Secretary of State’s office at the Oklahoma state capitol. In my hands were the application papers I had carefully filled out to register Love Without Boundaries as a formal charity. I remember feeling 1/3 parts nervous mixed with 2/3 parts excitement, and I prayed that we would be able to help as many children as possible find healing. Now, thirteen years later, I am still in awe of how it all unfolded, with people all over the world coming together to help orphaned and impoverished children in very real and impactful ways. Thanks to your support, babies and children have been helped both physically and emotionally through foster care, education, nutrition, and our life-saving healing program.
Thirteen years…changing thousands of lives. It never would have happened without you. Read more.

Not even a week after she was born, we first met Chandler.
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.
This photo is the very first one taken of Little Joe.
Many of you might remember that Little Joe was born in late summer of 2014 with his intestines on the outside of his body — a rare condition called gastroschisis. Sadly, before he was found by the police, he was exposed to the elements, and part of his intestine dried out. Read more.
