The Three Musketeers of Sanmenxia Foster Care

Three little boys in our Sanmenxia foster care program, Bobby, Daniel and Shane are affectionately known as the “Three Musketeers”. Similar to the fictional Three Musketeers, all three boys have very different personalities yet have formed an inseparable friendship while in foster care.

Seeking a Family for Shane


Five year old Shane came into foster care from his orphanage already having an idea what it would be like. He had heard all about having a foster family in school from his two best friends from school, Bobby and Daniel, and it seemed like he couldn’t wait to have a foster family of his own! Read more.

Daniel’s Doings


Six-year-old Daniel continues to amaze us with his interests and his abilities! He most recently has started taking a handicraft class at school where he is learning how to use clay and make origami. He loves this time during school and has been working hard to create new things. Read more.

Wonderful Willetha

Willetha Sanmenxia

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 CAN Do It!

Don’t let what you CANNOT do interfere with what you CAN do.
~ John Wooden (American basketball player and coach)

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.

We’re Number One!

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.

Happy Year of the Horse!


Xin Nián Kuài Lè! Today begins the most important holiday in China — the Lunar New Year. Also known as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, this fifteen-day festival is a special time when families come together to celebrate the coming year ahead, have parades, honor ancestors, and, of course…eat delicious food! This year, we say goodbye to the year of the snake and welcome the year of the horse. Read more.

Bobby, Brimming with Imagination

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.

Our manager made his first visit this month to see this little boy and reports that he has become very attached to his foster mother. Read more.
