Books, Books, and More Books!

The more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. ~Dr. Seuss

Thanks to the generosity of a foster care sponsor, the children in LWB foster care are going to new and wondrous places through the gift of books! Over 100 children received books this fall, including the children whose adoption files are available and ready to be chosen by families.

We just had to share the wonderful news that since the beginning of 2016, twenty children from our foster care program have been adopted, both internationally and domestically!


We wish a fond farewell to seven boys and thirteen girls who are now precious sons or daughters. 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.

Counting Down Our Top Ten Photos of 2011: Smiley in Foster Care

Coming in at number one for 2011 is this adorable photo of little Alisha, grinning for the camera with her foster mom. Alisha is part of our Loudi foster care program, and every report describes her as social baby who is outgoing and loving.

Alisha goes shopping with her foster mom almost every morning, and she is always so happy to meet neighbors and greet them with a smile. We loved hearing that she is “especially enthusiastic” when she sees other children! We are so happy that sweet Alisha has now been chosen for adoption. Read more.
