A Closer Look at Our Top Photos of 2009…Number Nine!
Coming in at ninth place in our Top Ten Photos of 2009 is this joyful picture from our foster care program. This little boy absolutely adores his grandmother. He loves spending time with her each day, and we think it is obvious how much she loves him right back. We had to laugh when we heard that he likes pomegranate fruit so much that the moment he sees one ripen on the tree, he begs his grandma to take him to pick it immediately!
Our goal with the LWB Foster Care program is for the kids in it to not even realize they are orphaned. Many babies in institutions spend all of their time in one room in their cribs. Foster care allows these wonderful children to be part of a family and a community, expanding their world and allowing them to develop on target.
