Adorable Drew


When he arrived at the orphanage, adorable Drew was six months old. An echocardiogram revealed this chubby-cheeked cutie was born with multiple heart defects: extrocardia, endocardia cushion defect, and pulmonary stenosis.

Within a week he was in Shanghai for life-saving surgery. Drew recovered so well from his surgery that he was discharged less than two weeks later!


Drew continued his recovery at LWB’s Anhui Healing Home, where he captured hearts and started growing bigger and stronger.

He quickly started to meet all of his milestones and became a typical little boy. It wasn’t long before Drew was ready to graduate from the healing home and joined a loving foster family in LWB’s Foster Care Program.

Now three years old, Drew has become a bit camera-shy!  He should be ready for the next stage of his heart repair in September, but our hope is that this precious boy will be with his forever family by then. His adoption file is currently with an agency, and he is ready and waiting to capture the hearts of his future family.


Please contact our adoption advocacy team if you may be interested in being Drew’s forever family!

Love Without Boundaries proudly advocates for adoption but is not an adoption agency. We invite you to contact adoption@lwbmail.com with questions about a child we have featured and encourage you to contact your adoption agency for more information about China’s Waiting Child Program.

  • I have four children from China–two sons and two daughters, all born with varying forms of heart disease. Our baby girl, who just turned 4, is an LWB graduate. Her heart defects are very similar to Drew’s special heart. She also received life-saving surgery in Shanghai thanks to LWB!!! She is doing wonderfully!

    If anyone reading would like to ask any questions about parenting a child born with complex heart disease, please don’t hesitate. LWB has my email and I’m glad for them to pass it on to anyone who might need to ask a parent some questions.

    I will be hoping and praying Drew’s family can find him very soon! He is precious!
