If you read our blog regularly, you probably remember Amy Eldridge’s recent post, “On My Own,” which gave us all insight into the hearts of older orphans who have no families of their own. Sadly, there are too many children who either never become eligible for adoption or who “age out” when they turn 14. Too many children in China never have a true chance to find a permanent home.
With all of this in mind, we want to introduce you to Peter, a 13-year-old boy from Taiyuan in Shaanxi Province. He is not in a Love Without Boundaries Program; however we want to feature him to increase his chances to find a family. Peter’s file has just been released and he is now eligible for adoption! However, he turns 14 in May 2011, so he only has a few short months to find his family before his birthday. We hope to make these months count by spreading the word that he is waiting and available for adoption right now. LWB is accepting donations to make an adoption assistance grant available for Peter’s adoption.
