Piper: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

In April, we welcomed four-year-old Piper to our foster care program in Sanmenxia, Henan. After spending her first four years of life in an orphanage, we were so pleased to see that Piper quickly attached to her foster mother.


Piper has Down Syndrome and was able to receive physical therapy in the orphanage. Now in a family environment, Piper has the full attention of her foster mother who spends lots of time with her and is paying close attention to her development. In just a short time in foster care, Piper has already learned to walk a bit more steadily and is willing to try to speak more! Read more.
