Gabrielle, a beautiful girl who was born with one arm shorter than the other, joined our foster care program in the summer of last year. Initially her foster mother said she was timid and rather clingy, and she used to cry a lot. Over time, Gabrielle learned to trust her foster family more and became more independent. She soon built a strong bond with her foster sister. Read more.

October was a very special time for our Healing program, as a group of LWB volunteers made its way to China. We all agree that it was a wonderful and extremely productive trip, and we hope you will enjoy reading all about it.
First things first: nothing was going to happen until we snuggled some babies, so we headed to Heartbridge on the morning of October 25th. Read more.
At the age of four, Joseph entered our Fuyang foster care program in Anhui in 2007. Over the past six years, it has been our bittersweet privilege to watch Joseph grow up — bittersweet because we would like nothing more than for him to find a forever family of his own. His amazingly sweet and happy demeanor and contagious smile make it a pleasure to be in his company.
New to LWB Community is Dolores, one of the darlings of our Fuyang foster care program!
Two-year-old Dolores has been in LWB foster care since 2012. She has had surgery to repair a cleft lip but will need future surgery for a cleft palate. In addition, Dolores has some developmental delays and digit deformities.
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
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. Read more.
LWB’s Fuyang Foster Care Program is growing by leaps and bounds. Many of the children who enter into our foster care program are graduates of LWB’s healing homes, but we do occasionally get requests from orphanages to take in children who have been recently abandoned. The Fuyang program has recently added four wonderful new children at the request of the Fuyang SWI. Stella is one of those children, and we can’t wait for you to meet her.
Stella is a healthy five-month-old little girl, who is missing the toes on her right foot. Read more
May God give you…For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer. ~ An Irish Blessing
Everything’s is changing now for Betsy! It was a year ago that Betsy joined our foster care program in Fuyang. Abandoned two years ago as a child and not a baby, Betsy has experienced her share of trauma already in life. . Read more.
When I was a little girl, I remember seeing the passport of my friend’s father, and as I turned each page and saw the entry and exit stamps from different countries, I thought inside how wonderful it would be to someday have a little blue book of my own. I didn’t get that first passport until I was 35, when I adopted my first child from China, but I still remember the excitement I felt when the immigration officer firmly put his red stamp in it. I still feel that same excitement every time I land in China – and by the time you read this, I will probably be standing in the immigration line yet again.
Each time I make a trip to check on the children in our programs, I of course reflect back on previous journeys. I always have the same prayer leading up to departure: that any child who truly needs our help will somehow cross my path. Read more.
Last month three LWB program directors visited some of our foster care programs in Anhui, Hunan, and Fujian Provinces. All the children were given individual gifts, and each child was also presented with a warm winter coat. A tremendous outpouring of support for our recent Coats for Kids project provided winter coats for children in all of our foster care programs, which were very much appreciated by the children and their families.
