Meeting Ifan

While traveling in China recently, I took the opportunity to take a side trip to meet a very special boy. Ifan had been part of the Love Without Boundaries foster care program since he was a baby. He lived with a wonderful foster family and was particularly close to his foster father. They would work in the courtyard garden and look at cars together. Ifan really loved visiting the neighbors in the small community in which they lived.  Then one year ago, his orphanage recalled all the children back to the institution, and Ifan lost the security of living with the family he loved.

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.

Around the world, people are proudly wearing crazy socks and celebrating the joy that people with Down Syndrome bring to the world. Today we would like to shine the spotlight on ten children with Down Syndrome in our programs who are waiting to be chosen for adoption.  Here they are from oldest to youngest:

Waiting Children of 2017: Ages 5 and Under

Our deepest wish for the children in our programs is to have the love and support of a family. This blog features seventeen younger waiting children in our programs. Many of these little ones were not featured last year and are new to our list. We are so happy that their orphanages filed their adoption paperwork and hope that in 2018 some of these incredibly special children will find permanent families of their very own.

Waiting Children of 2017: Ages 5-12

Every year, we do a blog that features all of the children in LWB programs who have been waiting for adoption for a period of several months or more.  Every year, this blog gets more difficult to do put together. Why?  Because so many of the same children wait, year after year after year. Of the 28 children we featured in last year’s Waiting Children blogs, only two boys and two girls were chosen for adoption in 2017. In this blog, we are featuring fourteen children ages 5-12 who are ready for adoption and waiting to be matched with a family. We understand that as children grow older, their chances to find a permanent family grow slimmer. Yet, we hold out hope that there may be a permanent family out there for each and every one of these twelve precious children.
