Born in the late fall of 2014 in northern Anhui, Benjamin soon joined our Heartbridge Healing Home for extra love and care to prepare for cleft surgery. He was a beautiful baby with the crabbiest set of eyebrows, and LWB volunteers loved to see new pictures of “Grumpy Benjamin” in our email inboxes each week.

Healing Home Hero of the Week: Erin

Right before Christmas in 2015, baby Erin came into this world. Born with Down Syndrome and a heart defect, she found herself in an orphanage in central China.
