Catey: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Catey was in dire need of medical care when her orphanage contacted Love Without Boundaries for help. She was found with a significant hernia needing immediate surgery and was also born with a cleft lip and palate. After a successful surgical hernia repair, she was released from the hospital into the arms of loving nannies at LWB’s Anhui Healing Home (AHH).


At two weeks old and weighing just over six pounds, Catey did not know how to cry in order to make her needs known. Her expert nannies carefully fed her on a strict schedule, knowing that she would not let them know if she was hungry. Babies born affected by cleft issues need more time to ingest nutritious formula. Using a specialized squeezable bottle with a special cleft nipple, Catey’s nanny takes as much time as Catey needs to fill her little belly.

Catey has quickly learned what she needs to do at AHH: Eat, sleep, and grow! She is doing those things well.


Catey is in need of sponsors to support her placement at AHH. Your sponsorship of $50 per month, or $25 per month for a shared sponsorship, will allow you to join Catey’s team and celebrate her growth and developmental milestones yet to come. Sponsors will receive monthly updates and photos.
