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


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.

Stella: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

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

Waiting for Betsy’s Smile

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.

Hopes and Plans for Our China Trip

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.

A Visit To Our Foster Care Programs in China

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.

Vicki: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

When our Foster Care Director Arlene Howard was visiting Fuyang this past week, she was expecting to visit with a child named Betsy and her foster family.  However, she was surprised when a tiny five-month-old girl was presented to her wearing a darling pink bonnet.  The local orphanage requested that we take this sweet girl into our foster care program as well, and we agreed.

Tristan: All Boy!

Tristan is a four-year-old boy in our LWB’s Fuyang Education Program who has limb differences in both of his arms and hands. It brings us all such pleasure to say that he is ready to be matched with a family now!

Tristan has been featured on LWB Community (“Tristan: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week“), and we’ve enjoyed watching him thrive as he joined LWB’s Fuyang Foster Care Program and then progressed to preschool.

John, Always Moving Forward

There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still. ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

With the help of his foster grandpa, John has mastered the art of going forward. John formed an immediate connection with his foster grandpa when he joined our Fuyang foster care program at age five. At the time, little John was recovering from spinal surgery and had experienced quite a bit of trauma (see his previous blog, “The Land of Counterpane…and Beyond”). Learning to walk again required braces on his legs, which he still wears and may wear forever. Together John and his grandpa navigated through his recovery and continue to improve his mobility, not letting obstacles like big shoes or uncomfortable leg braces hold them back. Read more.
