Willetha entered LWB’s Sanmenxia Foster Care Program just after her first birthday. She grew by leaps and bounds within a very short time of being with her foster family! Not only did she begin to crawl, but she began climbing on furniture and attempting to stand independently. Living with her loving foster family allowed her to get constant attention and guidance, especially from her foster mother who remains home with her during the day. Read more.

The babies and older children will start their journeys to Kaifeng this Friday as well, most arriving by train but a few coming by plane since they are from provinces far away from Henan. For a lot of them, it will be the first time they have left their orphanage, and our team will be waiting to give them the warmest welcome possible. Read more.

Every month in Daniel’s foster care reports there is one word that is never used: “can’t”. It seems there is nothing that this animated five-year-old boy in our Henan foster care program cannot do!
Diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Daniel is said to be jumping on one foot, standing on one foot for long periods of time, jumping off three stairs, and playing football! Read more.
Creative and imaginative would be two words to describe Bobby, a handsome four-year-old boy in our Henan foster care program.
Bobby loves to participate in imaginative play with or without other children. He will use cars, pictures of animals, and dolls to set up his “house” and his pretend family where he is content to play for hours. Read more.
