Tiny Tessa is a little fighter!
Several weeks ago, an orphanage in Anhui called us about a newborn preemie who had been left on her own. We called her Tessa. Read more.
At the very end of February, on a winter night that dropped to just 24 degrees, a tiny newborn baby was found outside in the cold. Sadly she wasn’t found quickly, and by the time she was taken to a nearby orphanage, she was in respiratory distress which soon led to pneumonia. LWB was happy to help with her emergency hospitalization.
Baby Christine, as she came to be called, was admitted to the NICU. Thankfully with antibiotics, a warm incubator, and lots of care by the hospital nurses and doctors, she was able to be discharged to our Anhui Healing Home yesterday. Although she is still very tiny, we know she is mighty. Read more.
Earlier this month, we introduced you to another preemie who had been found in January and taken to an orphanage in central China. The staff of the orphanage called us right away, and baby Connie was immediately moved to the NICU of the provincial children’s hospital. This photo shows how tiny she was compared to the diapers on the bed with her!
On Christmas Eve, a tiny preemie baby was found in rural Anhui. Baby Stephen, as he came to be called, weighed a little more than two pounds and needed immediate intervention to remain alive.
Thankfully, his orphanage called us right away, and he was moved to the top children’s hospital in his home province where he began a fight for his life.
In the last few weeks, a tiny warrior by the name of Connie has been capturing hearts.
Connie’s orphanage called us in late January after she was abandoned and found by the police. Although the circumstances of her birth were unknown, they felt she was born prematurely. Read more.
The start of a new year is always a great time for reflection, and here at LWB we love the month of January as a time to remember all of the beautiful children who came into our hands the year before. Over the next three days, we want to share some of the highlights from our Medical program, as supporters like you helped so many incredible kids receive life-changing medical care. Let’s go month by month to remember some of the very special children you impacted.
Earlier this year, Love Without Boundaries was contacted by an orphanage in rural Anhui, China, that had just admitted twin baby girls.
The tiny preemies had been found with a note saying their parents were unable to afford their medical care. Even as our hearts filled with sadness over the family’s enormous loss, we knew it was urgent to get the baby girls to the hospital. Thanks to our wonderful supporters, Sydney and Reagan’s journey of healing with LWB had begun. Read more.
Twins Reagan and Sydney are smiling thanks in part to their Prenan formula. These adorable sisters were born prematurely in February, and Prenan is especially formulated for premature infants like them. It helps to increase weight and rapid growth in infants with low birth weight. Don’t these sisters look wonderful?
Sometimes the standard, off-the-grocery shelf formula isn’t able to meet the nutritional needs of a medically fragile child, and a specialized formula is the key to helping them heal. Read more.
