It Takes a Community: Rh Negative Blood in China

Pearl2.15

Last week, precious baby Pearl was found at just four days old with a hospital note explaining she had a meningocele, a large “spinal tumor” which is actually a protrusion of the membranes which cover the spine.  Although we do not know for sure, there is a chance that Pearl’s birthparents were unable to afford the surgery and treatment that she would need.  We made arrangements with her orphanage to move her immediately to a hospital in Shanghai.

Aaron turns four this month! He is one of the few children we know of who has been a part of each of LWB’s five program areas, and as a result we have quite a few photos and reports on this adorable boy. Since his adoption file is ready and with an agency, we thought it would be the perfect time to highlight Aaron through the years. Read more.

The nurses gave her a warm bath, applied lotion, and she fell fast asleep in the warm incubator. Read more.

One Tough Peanut

In early June, LWB opened our newest project in Henan province: the Starbridge Healing Home.  One of the first babies who came into our hands there was a tiny little girl who had truly struggled during the first five months of her life.  When she arrived at our center, she weighed just 2 kg.  In addition, she had a cervical meningocele which appeared to have broken open.

Peanut 1

We nicknamed her “Peanut,” and we realized that the odds were definitely not in her favor. However, we were grateful we could love her and hold her and try our best to get her the medical care she needed. Read more
