Domestic Adoptions in 2017

At LWB, it’s a real celebration each time we hear that one of the orphaned children in our China programs has found a  forever home. Ten years ago, almost every child in LWB care would have had their files prepared for international adoption. Today, when we learn a child has been chosen, our first question now is “Domestic or International?”

Waiting Children of 2017: Ages 5-12

Every year, we do a blog that features all of the children in LWB programs who have been waiting for adoption for a period of several months or more.  Every year, this blog gets more difficult to do put together. Why?  Because so many of the same children wait, year after year after year. Of the 28 children we featured in last year’s Waiting Children blogs, only two boys and two girls were chosen for adoption in 2017. In this blog, we are featuring fourteen children ages 5-12 who are ready for adoption and waiting to be matched with a family. We understand that as children grow older, their chances to find a permanent family grow slimmer. Yet, we hold out hope that there may be a permanent family out there for each and every one of these twelve precious children.

Field Trip!

A field trip is always a memorable experience in the life of a child! At the end of 2016, some of the children from our Believe In Me orphanage school in Huainan went on a fun field trip with their teachers to the big city of Hefei.

The children were taken to a special ‘career center’ where they learned about a wide range of professions such as policeman, fireman, nurse, model, dairy farmer, and chocolate maker. Read more.
