A $20,000 Adoption Assistance Grant for Ifan

Thanks to the amazing generosity of someone who really wants Ifan to finally be chosen and have a family of his own, we can announce that this wonderful 12-year-old now has a $20,000 Adoption Assistance grant towards his adoption expenses! For families in the U.S. who can claim the adoption tax credit, this means there should be no financial barriers for a loving and committed family to make Ifan their son.

Eight-year-old Luke in our Kaifeng foster care program has been singing and dancing his way into our hearts since we first met him as a tiny baby in need of heart surgery.We have been advocating for this little guy to be adopted for so long and have many blogs about him. We hold onto our wish for Luke that he will make his way into the hearts of a forever family soon!

Advocate, Adopt, Sponsor, Share: Celebrate National Adoption Month

Nearly all of us here at Love Without Boundaries have been touched by adoption in some way, and so we love honoring and celebrating ADOPTION in the month of November!  One of our core beliefs is that all children deserve to know the love of a family, regardless of the country in which they were born. We have so much respect for the foster care system in the United States and celebrate when we hear that a child in need of a forever family here in our own country has been adopted!  However, our focus is China, and we want to use this month to highlight the thousands of orphaned children living in China, waiting for families to love them.

John’s Only Hope

At LWB, we always try to be as respectful as possible to the children in our programs. We always want to treat them with dignity, and because of that we are hesitant to ever publicly discuss certain medical conditions, as we believe they should remain private. Today I am writing about a little boy in rural foster care, however, who absolutely needs a permanent home to survive. And since he has waited over two years on China’s shared adoption list without being chosen, I am going to break our rule and discuss his condition openly – because I feel like saving his life is the most important thing right now. This eight-year-old boy is just too special to not get the long-term care he deserves.


When we first met John, he was only five years old. We learned that he was abandoned following a failed meningocele surgery, which left him with weak legs and feet that turned out to the sides. Read more.

John Waits

John is a child whom many of us have watched grow up.  Part of our foster care program in Anhui since 2008, we have seen monthly reports on him for many years, and LWB volunteers have met with him on numerous occasions when they visited his village.  He has truly grown into a boy who is full of fun!  John has been on the shared list for several years now, and he also is the recipient of an adoption assistance grant.  Boys are typically chosen for adoption less frequently than girls (see Amy Eldridge’s blog post, “The Adoption of Boys“).  Despite this, and despite the fact that with each passing year John’s chances of being adopted become slimmer, we hold onto hope that an incredible family is out there for this special boy.

Wishing for Fynn a Forever Family

Somersaults, building with blocks, riding bikes, playing in the sand, and learning how to make new friends:  precisely what childhood should be filled with.  But what is missing from this picture? A permanent family.

Some orphaned children like Fynn are fortunate to be placed with a foster family. They get to experience life in a family environment, which is a great second to having a permanent family. Read more.
