We are huge fans of the boys in our programs, and it breaks our hearts when we see boys who have been waiting for families for entirely too long. It seems like ages now that we have been hearing that the shared list of waiting child files has consisted of 75% boys and 25% girls. (The shared list is accessible to all agencies with a China Waiting Child adoption program.) No one seems to be able explain why families wanting to adopt are primarily interested in bringing girls into their families, but the fact remains that approximately 3/4 of the children from China who wait for adoption are boys.

Grace is a little girl full of life!
As a part of our Education program in Hunan since 2012, Grace is known to be very polite and neat at school. Her teachers have seen two years of her enthusiasm and cheerfulness. Now, the hope is that she will bring that to a family through adoption! Read more.
Since entering our Believe in Me school in Liupanshui in 2012, Elaine has made great progress. At the beginning what was most noticeable was her desire to help and understand her new surroundings. Everything was new and different to her, so it took her some time to warm up. She obviously paid close attention and her teachers saw that she was making strides to interact more with others, learn how to verbalize herself and play with the other children. Read more.
When there are so many children who are waiting to be matched with families each day, it is not uncommon for a child to be looked over a few times before the perfect family for them finally finds them. Michael and Daisy are two such children. They have been waiting on the shared list for some time now and are currently in our education program in Chenzhou. We are so excited to be able to share the news that their orphanage has agreed to WAIVE their orphanage donation fee for any families interested in adopting these children!
Daisy is nine years old. This little flower is full of self-esteem and independence. Her confidence radiates as she performs, and she immediately volunteers herself to be chosen to be in activities or performances at her special needs school. Read more.
Pearl is, like her namesake, beautiful, rare, and precious.
And very much like a pearl, she is a hidden treasure of the Waiting Children Program. Six years old, Pearl is living with a loving foster care family in Guizhou, but she is still waiting patiently for a family to call her own. Read more.
Today, we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. In the past few years, we have cheered as we have seen China submit adoption paperwork for more and more children with Down Syndrome. These precious children now have the chance to live life as part of a loving family…a family who will help them to realize their true potential and love them for the wonderful people they are.
On this day of celebration and awareness, we are featuring some of the gorgeous waiting children in LWB programs who just so happen to have that extra special chromosome: Martin, Alan, Joseph, Niamh, and Luke! Read more.
New to LWB Community is Dolores, one of the darlings of our Fuyang foster care program!
Two-year-old Dolores has been in LWB foster care since 2012. She has had surgery to repair a cleft lip but will need future surgery for a cleft palate. In addition, Dolores has some developmental delays and digit deformities.
The only way love can last a lifetime is if it’s unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather by the one choosing to love. ~Stephen Kendrick
At Love Without Boundaries, we wish for every child to have the unconditional love that they deserve. To make this wish a reality, we offer adoption assistance grants when possible. Adoption carries a large price tag, and we know that every little bit can help a family’s dreams of adopting a reality. Read more.
