Reggie

It didn’t take long for little Reggie to capture our hearts. In  March, Reggie came into LWB care when he needed help with his ankle and leg. He had an accident and suffered a broken ankle, but his family was unable to afford the medical care he needed, and he never healed properly.

Morgan’s Eyes

Morgan is 3 ½ years old and is new to our foster care program in Guizhou. When our Foster care team saw Morgan’s photo, they felt that he was in need of urgent medical attention.

We were able to connect Morgan and his foster family with a wonderful eye hospital in Yunnan, and the chief surgeon asked them to travel to the hospital immediately.

Catey: Look At Her Now!

In August 2014, a baby girl was born in Anhui province with a cleft lip and palate and an umbilical hernia. We named her Catey and welcomed her to our Anhui Healing Home.

When she was four months old, Catey had surgery to repair her cleft lip. Soon after, she graduated to our Huainan foster care program. With her palate still open, Catey struggled to feed well, and she wasn’t gaining the weight we were hoping for.

Safe Haven Foster Care in Cambodia

LWB has provided family care to thousands of orphaned children since we first launched our foster care program in China over a decade ago. When we decided to begin working with orphaned and vulnerable children in Cambodia, we knew that foster care would once again be an essential part of our work. What we didn’t know at the time was that we would be called upon to help some of the most vulnerable children in that country:  those who had been victims of child trafficking and severe abuse.

As this week’s blog series by LWB Board member Bob Spires explained, Cambodia remains a prime source country for the trafficking of children. Many are taken across the border and live through things no child should ever experience. Read more

Today Is World Down Syndrome Day

March 21 is World Down Syndrome day, a day set aside to recognize and raise awareness for individuals with Down Syndrome. Over the years we have seen the number of children with Down Syndrome in our foster care program grow, and we are thrilled that they get to grow up as a beloved part of their local communities. Many of the children we featured as waiting for adoption last year are still waiting in 2017, so we want to take a moment today to once again highlight these incredible kids. Read more
