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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
