This marks Landon’s first appearance on the LWB Community, so we want to make sure he is properly introduced. Landon is four and a half years old and lives in foster care in Hefei, Anhui province. His Chinese name means “outstanding.” Needless to say, we would agree! We chose “Landon” as his English name which can mean “long hill,” a name which seems fitting when you read about his energy and the long hill he has had to climb to be the healthy, lively boy he is today.
Since Landon arrived at the orphanage in Hefei as a little tyke, Love Without Boundaries and other organizations have been able to help him to get the care that he needs. Landon has lived both in the orphanage as well as with a foster family. From what we know, foster care has truly helped him to blossom — something we love to see and hope continues.
Landon goes to school regularly and really likes to play with other children. He especially loves any outdoor activities, playing sports and doing physical exercise.
From what we have heard, Landon is a VERY busy young man. He reportedly bounces around from one activity to the next. His teachers are most likely exhausted at trying to get him to sit in his chair to finish his school work!
After hearing how active this little boy is, it might be surprising to learn that Landon was born with a congenital heart defect. Landon also had surgery for a hernia in 2008 through Love Without Boundaries. We do not have information on his heart condition or any surgery he may have had for it was likely completed prior to his coming into the orphanage.
We hope you agree that this is one outstanding little boy. Please feel free to share his blog so that an outstanding family can bring him home!
