Roberta, Young Trailblazer

For most of her four years of life, Roberta has been living in the orphanage in Xiaoxian.  Just a few months ago, her orphanage felt that she was ready to experience life in a family, and we were so pleased to be able to offer her that opportunity. Roberta is the very first child with Down Syndrome to be placed with a foster family in her village!

Joseph: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Joseph is ten years old and lives with his foster family. He often plays sports with his friends after school. Joseph wants to learn to play ping pong and has been practicing his exercises to enter a gymnastics competition. Joseph’s interest and progress in physical activities and sports is remarkable considering that he had spinal surgery for a meningoencephalocele. He hasn’t let this challenge slow him down one bit.

Rob: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Rob is a new arrival to LWB’s Anhui Healing Home (AHH), but he is not new to LWB. Rob just arrived from LWB’s Starbridge Healing Home, where he put on his first five pounds in just a couple of short months. Sometimes our healing home bed planning involves moving babies to the home that is nearest to the best medical care for their needs. Rob swapped with another baby for exactly that reason, and we are all delighted to welcome him at AHH. Read more.

Creatively Making a Difference

Sometimes we are surprised and delighted at the creative fundraising efforts undertaken on behalf of the children helped by Love Without Boundaries.

Incubator Faith

Recently we heard about a daughter and father team who dreamt up a very “fun” fundraiser.  For Father’s Day this father asked his daughter Emma to donate money to a charity instead of giving him a gift. She decided she wanted to honor him with something different, and she wanted it to be BIG.   Read more

Jana: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Sweet Jana was born with aortic valve stenosis, which makes her little heart work harder and will eventually weaken her heart muscle. She also has patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), a persistent opening between two major blood vessels leading from the heart. Jana frequently becomes ill and often needs to be hospitalized for treatment. She needs surgery as soon as possible to have the best chance at a full recovery. Jana Read more

Darling Dominic

Look at sweet baby Dominic.  Dominic has been in the care of our Starbridge Healing Home for one month now and we are very concerned about him.  He is 3 months old and has a serious heart defect, causing him to struggle to get enough oxygen into his little body.  This gives his skin a bluish appearance and has us very worried.

When Dominic first came to SBHH he was a very fussy little boy and very somber. Read more

One Tough Peanut

In early June, LWB opened our newest project in Henan province: the Starbridge Healing Home.  One of the first babies who came into our hands there was a tiny little girl who had truly struggled during the first five months of her life.  When she arrived at our center, she weighed just 2 kg.  In addition, she had a cervical meningocele which appeared to have broken open.

Peanut 1

We nicknamed her “Peanut,” and we realized that the odds were definitely not in her favor. However, we were grateful we could love her and hold her and try our best to get her the medical care she needed. Read more

This stoic-looking fellow, Kirk, has the honor of being one of last year’s “auction babies” who received his gift of surgery with help from our Born In My Heart art auction.
