Nate’s Mischievous Side

Nate is a happy little boy from Shunde in Guangdong Province. Often described as curious and helpful, Nate’s nannies have revealed that there is a playful side to this well-mannered child. He and a friend recently devised a sneaky plot to get into a high cabinet containing snacks. Together the two children cooperated to get into the cabinet, which included Nate climbing onto the other boy’s back to make him tall enough to reach into the cabinet and get the snacks out! We know Nate is good at sharing; so we can imagine the two shared their pinched treats. Nate’s ability to get along well with other children is apparent, and he certainly seems to understand the concept of teamwork!

Nate’s Wait

Last fall we blogged on three irresistible boys from Foshun Shunde orphanage in Guangdong: Perry, Jared and Nate: Boys Will Be Boys! We’re pleased to report that Perry was recently chosen by a family, which just warms our hearts. The very cool Jared was featured in our blog just last week. We didn’t want Nate to feel left out, so we thought we’d share some new photos of him that we just received since he’s still waiting on the shared list. Is he not adorable?

Jared: Peace Out!

Jared is one cool dude!  In every photo we see of him, he confidently gives us the “peace” sign.  In the last blog we ran on him, we reported that Jared might be the next Justin Bieber…with his upbeat, polite attitude and his love for singing and performing, not to mention his obvious sense of self-assurance.  Jared is quite friendly to everyone in his orphanage in Shunde.

Winnie’s New Coat for the New Year

In China, many people believe it’s important to welcome the new year with new clothes.  Eight-year-old Winnie is so proud of her new coat and is ready to bring in the Year of the Rabbit!

Winnie is a very sweet girl who lives at the Shunde orphanage in Guangdong, where LWB has done orphanage assistance projects.   This girl is always smiling and is very outgoing.  The nannies love her because she is an excellent helper!   Cleaning the table, mopping the floor, making beds, folding clothes and feeding babies are all fun and games for Winnie.   She has a little humpback (a frontward curving of the spine that causes a bowing of the back), but it is said to not be too serious.  Winnie walks very well, although occasionally she is a little unsteady.  She expresses herself well but has difficulty articulating some of her words.

Shunde Feeding Time

I was happy to get these pictures this week that showed different babies, different ages, different expressions with their bottles. Formula is such a basic need for these babies. I want to thank those who help these vulnerable children with such a basic need.

Itty Bitties

We recently received an update from the Foshan Shunde orphanage, and I couldn’t believe all the new, TINY little babies there! Out of about 20 babies that we received reports on, nine were under two months of age.
