Piper: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

In April, we welcomed four-year-old Piper to our foster care program in Sanmenxia, Henan. After spending her first four years of life in an orphanage, we were so pleased to see that Piper quickly attached to her foster mother.


Piper has Down Syndrome and was able to receive physical therapy in the orphanage. Now in a family environment, Piper has the full attention of her foster mother who spends lots of time with her and is paying close attention to her development. In just a short time in foster care, Piper has already learned to walk a bit more steadily and is willing to try to speak more!


Piper is a happy little girl who knows exactly what she wants. Although she only says a few words, Piper keeps a close eye on her surroundings and likes to know what is going on. Her foster parents are very experienced parents and have big plans for her, including walking for longer periods of time! They think she is a lovely girl and are so happy to have her as part of their family.


The physical therapy that Piper received at the Social Welfare Institute has helped her increase her strength and walking skills. She loves to play games such as hide and seek and also loves to play with her toys. One of Piper’s favorite things is to play with her one-year-old foster brother, Quentin!


Piper is in need of monthly sponsors to support their care while in foster care. Sponsors will receive detailed reports of her monthly progress documenting their growth and development. Please join us in watching her grow!

Piper is also waiting to be chosen for adoption! She has an adoption assistance grant of $4,600 through Reece’s Rainbow where she is known as “Shari.” Please feel free to email our Adoption Advocacy Team if you have any questions about her adoption.

Love Without Boundaries proudly advocates for adoption but is not an adoption agency. We invite you to contact adoption@lwbmail.com with questions about a child we have featured and encourage you to contact your adoption agency for more information about China’s Waiting Child Program.
