Carlos: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Carlos was born late last year with unilateral cleft lip and palate, as well as syphilis. He entered LWB’s Starbridge Healing Home soon after and was immediately placed in the hospital for treatment of his syphilis.


Weighing 5.5 pounds when he came into our care, Carlos has already gained nearly five pounds…thanks to the loving, patient care of our wonderful healing home nannies. Carlos has a very wide palate and feeding takes a great deal of time, but his nannies have carefully and patiently helped sweet Carlos to grow in preparation for having his lip surgery.


Carlos is now ready to have his lip repaired. We anticipate he will have his surgery in April during LWB’s 2014 Cleft Exchange.

Carlos is in need of additional sponsors to help fund his nurturing care in preparation for his upcoming cleft lip repair surgery. We welcome your one-time donation or monthly sponsorship. All sponsors will receive monthly photos and updates on his progress. Please consider being a part of Carlos’ story of hope and healing.
