An Adoption Assistance Grant for Robert

We are happy to announce our newest recipient of an LWB Adoption Assistance Grant — Robert!

Robert is eight years old and attends school at our Believe in Me orphanage school in Lanzhou. He has been diagnosed with EV, or Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis. While his condition is not life-threatening, it is very unusual. EV is a rare inherited condition that is characterized by the development of skin lesions which can be very sensitive to the touch.

Robert seems to often be cheerful and to enjoy school and being around his classmates. His teachers describe him as a cooperative child who chooses his own friends and engages in cooperative play with his friends.  His favorite activity is to build with blocks, and he can build a very big castle!

Teachers also say that he has a good attention span in class and follows instructions well.

Lately he has been working hard on his academics and can count to ten, listen closely to a story, and recite back what he is told.

Robert has the sweetest singing voice as you can hear in this recent video.

While Robert is still fairly young, it is difficult to imagine how his challenging his life would be living as an adult in China with his condition. Just think how much this sweet boy could truly benefit from regular medical attention as well as the attention, care, and love of a forever family!

In addition to a $3,000 Adoption Assistance grant from LWB, Robert also has a grant of over $2,100 from Reece’s Rainbow where he is known as “Aslan”. We hope that this available grant money will get the attention of a family who will fall in love with Robert and dedicate themselves to bringing this darling boy home.
