Celebrating World Down Syndrome Day

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.

Luke and David: Brand New Adoption Grant Recipients!

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.

Adopting a Child with Cerebral Palsy: Henry’s Story

March is National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, and we think it’s a perfect time to catch up with Patrick, a child with cerebral palsy who was adopted nearly two years ago.

Patrick Strikes A Pose

We had already gone down the special needs adoption road, and I had been advocating for Patrick for months. Patrick was a nine-year-old boy with a somewhat obvious special need, and no one was stepping forward for him. For some reason my heart would pound when I looked at him. Read more.

Matched (Or Home) in 2013!

One of the highlights of our year at Love Without Boundaries might be putting together this annual piece.  It brings us so much cheer to see the faces of all the children for whom we advocated on this blog who have been matched with forever families!  Some of these children have already joined their forever families, while others have that joy ahead of them.  Please join us in wishing these children all the best in their lives ahead!

Blossoming at Bethel

Many of our supporters might have heard of a wonderful charity called Bethel China.   Bethel is located outside of Beijing and is dedicated to helping orphaned children who have vision issues.  They are based on a small farm, with foster homes and a school on the same property. It is surrounded by countryside, where they grow their own vegetables and have chickens, goats, dogs, and horses.

Recently, Bethel contacted us to see if any of the children in our programs had vision issues who might benefit from their education and life skills opportunities.  We are very excited to report that three LWB children were accepted into their program! Read more.
