Grants for Adam and Song!
LWB is thrilled to announce that we are offering $1500 grants towards the adoption of two wonderful little boys who are awaiting families.
Adam is a four-year old from Loudi in Hunan province who has faced a number of medical challenges in his short life. He had a heart defect which has closed on its own and clubbed feet which are correcting nicely (with close attention to his bracing and skin care by his foster family). He has had surgery on his spinal cord, and CT scans are showing decreased swelling of his brain. Such a strong little boy!
Through it all, Adam is learning to count in both Chinese and English. His gross motor skills are progressing all the time, he is walking since club foot treatment, and best of all, he has a delightful personality which shines through all the time!
Currently, Adam is the Featured Child with Families Thru International Adoption. You can read more about him through the link above. FTIA is waiving agency fees towards his adoption as well.
Now meet our second grant recipient — Song, from Nanping, Fujian province! He is a beautiful little boy who had retinoblastoma of his eyes. Some of you might remember him from the blog, Song’s Story, from last summer. When we introduced you to Song, we had an incredible outpouring of love and support for him. In just a few short days, he was sponsored for a total of $5000!
Now, 2 years old Song is smart and vocal. Since losing his sight to retinoblastoma, his other senses seem to have become increasingly sharp and through it all his personality has really come alive! Treatment has improved Song’s potential to live a long and healthy life; his most recent CT scan continues to show positive results.
Both Adam and Song have medical needs that make life for them a little extra difficult. Their needs may cast a shadow over their many capabilities and endless future possibilities. However, these strong little boys have come so far, making progress all the time. We believe these children would benefit from a full-time, permanent, loving family to help them fight their battles. To make this a reality for them, we want to help their family by offering $1500 towards their adoption expenses.
Please feel free to share the story’s of Adam and Song and the great news of their grant!
