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.

Daniel is a six year old boy who is waiting for a family of his own! At the moment, he is thriving in our foster care program in Henan province. Our team of volunteers who met him last fall fell hard for this little guy and his fun and affectionate personality! Read more.
When we received the photos from our Sanmenxia foster care manager this month, we were tickled to see that the kids there have learned a new hand gesture. Instead of the usual two-fingered “peace” sign so commonly seen in photos these days, three of our children are now telling us that they’re “Number One”!
Geoff is new to our Sanmenxia foster care program. However, he may not be with us too long as we have learned he has been matched to a family — always #1 news! 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.

In October 2013, three LWB volunteers visited foster care programs in Henan and Anhui provinces. Today we want to share a few photos and stories from their visit to Sanmenxia, in Henan province (northern China).
Love Without Boundaries has had a foster care program in Sanmenxia for several years now. However, it was growing smaller as more and more children in our care were adopted (a good problem to have!) Orphanage officials asked us to a meeting to discuss expanding the program to include new children.
We met with the directors of the orphanage and met many children they wished could be considered for LWB foster care. Read more.
Michael, from LWB’s Sanmenxia Foster Care Program, was recently adopted! Throughout his journey with us, he continually amazed us with the amount of progress he made in terms of his health and development. He is truly a fighter and overcame so much in his first two years of life.
Molly is an adorable four-year-old girl who has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Last fall Molly’s orphanage agreed to place her in LWB’s Sanmenxia Foster Care Program. This sweet young girl has truly thrived with the experience of receiving one-on-one attention and being in a family setting.
Molly’s foster mother has worked with her on manners, social skills such as greetings, feeding herself, and being safe by holding hands and not walking in the street. Read more.
