Beep, Beep…Here Comes Peng!

Peng, a two-year-old little boy who has a very special place in the hearts of many LWB volunteers and supporters, is on the move and has found his way back to the shared list! With his ready smile, inquisitive and clever nature and lively sense of humor, Peng has also become a favorite of the aunties and other children in his orphanage. So many people are pulling for Peng to drive off into the sunset with a loving family.

Last summer, Amy Eldridge, LWB’s Executive Director, met Peng and was moved to write about him in a blog entitled “Peng’s Chance”. The twinkle in his eyes and sparkle in his heart shine through in each photo we have of him. We can only imagine how he must light up the room in person!

Peng was born with a very serious heart defect, and his best chance for a healthy life lies in an operation that is quite risky to perform in China. If he is adopted overseas, then he would have a much greater chance for having the life-saving surgery…as well as a chance to speed into a family’s heart and light it up with his ability to live life to the fullest.

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

    Oh! I’m so glad to see him again! My four year old son and I have been praying for him for many months now. I wish my husband and I were in the financial shape we need to be to adopt him. I’d fly out tomorrow to get him! 🙂

    I only wish I could adopt him, but I am too old, on antidepressants, and my husband wouldn’t hear of adopting when we were younger and our bio kids had just left home. As for western pediatric hospitals, all the good ones aren’t in the States. Our Toronto Sick Kids (officially the Hospital for Sick Children) is top-notch, and I knew a baby boy who was born with an “incurable” heart ailment, who was completely cured by a surgeon at Sick Kids. I certainly hope someone adopts Peng and find a hospital, in the States or elsewhere, that can fix his heart.
