Amazing Amanda

This beautiful little girl joined our Heartbridge Healing Home in December, just two months before her third birthday. She had just had surgery for a complex heart defect and needed extra nurturing care to help her heal and catch up on the many developmental milestones that had been delayed by her illness.

Upon arrival, a very somber Amanda did not speak or walk, and barely held her head up on her own. Her new nannies were very concerned about this melancholy little girl; would they be able to bring her out of her shell?

Vivienne: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Coined by 16th century poet John Donne, the expression “No man is an island entire of itself” can well refer to foster care, or any one of our programs. Though distinct entities, our programs are tightly connected and work closely together to achieve the best possible outcomes for each and every child that we care for.

Not yet one year old, Vivienne is a wonderful example of not two but three programs connecting and communicating to care, nurture and love her. Born prematurely, Vivienne was a tiny, fragile baby when our Medical team facilitated necessary hospitalization. Read more.
