Help Us Keep Elgin and Ryder Safe

This winter, we were called by orphanages asking for help with two tiny boys, both of whom were orphaned at birth: Elgin and Ryder. Both Elgin and Ryder were hospitalized and have made great progress in their healing. Under normal circumstances, they would be ready to discharge to the specialized care of our China Healing Home. Unfortunately, the Coronavirus outbreak has caused both the PT center where our healing home is located and their home orphanages to be sealed and quarantined. No one has permission to leave or enter the facilities at the moment, so for now, the safest option for these two fragile babies is to stay right where they are — in the hospital.

Baby Christine and Baby Tessa

At the very end of February, on a winter night that dropped to just 24 degrees, a tiny newborn baby was found outside in the cold. Sadly she wasn’t found quickly, and by the time she was taken to a nearby orphanage, she was in respiratory distress which soon led to pneumonia. LWB was happy to help with her emergency hospitalization.

Baby Christine, as she came to be called, was admitted to the NICU. Thankfully with antibiotics, a warm incubator, and lots of care by the hospital nurses and doctors, she was able to be discharged to our Anhui Healing Home yesterday. Although she is still very tiny, we know she is mighty. Read more.
