Meeting Ifan

While traveling in China recently, I took the opportunity to take a side trip to meet a very special boy. Ifan had been part of the Love Without Boundaries foster care program since he was a baby. He lived with a wonderful foster family and was particularly close to his foster father. They would work in the courtyard garden and look at cars together. Ifan really loved visiting the neighbors in the small community in which they lived.  Then one year ago, his orphanage recalled all the children back to the institution, and Ifan lost the security of living with the family he loved.

Waiting Children of 2017: Ages 5 and Under

Our deepest wish for the children in our programs is to have the love and support of a family. This blog features seventeen younger waiting children in our programs. Many of these little ones were not featured last year and are new to our list. We are so happy that their orphanages filed their adoption paperwork and hope that in 2018 some of these incredibly special children will find permanent families of their very own.

Waiting Children of 2017: Ages 5-12

Every year, we do a blog that features all of the children in LWB programs who have been waiting for adoption for a period of several months or more.  Every year, this blog gets more difficult to do put together. Why?  Because so many of the same children wait, year after year after year. Of the 28 children we featured in last year’s Waiting Children blogs, only two boys and two girls were chosen for adoption in 2017. In this blog, we are featuring fourteen children ages 5-12 who are ready for adoption and waiting to be matched with a family. We understand that as children grow older, their chances to find a permanent family grow slimmer. Yet, we hold out hope that there may be a permanent family out there for each and every one of these twelve precious children.

Love Without Boundaries has had the privilege of knowing Beatrice since she was five months old. Born with spina bifida, she does not currently have feeling in her lower limbs. However, Beatrice’s smile and personality are evident, and at a year and a half old, her abilities are shining through.

The more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. ~Dr. Seuss

Beautiful Beatrice: Waiting For Adoption

Beautiful Beatrice entered our foster care program when she was just five months old. Beatrice was born with spina bifida, which occurs in utero as the spinal column develops and fails to completely seal. Often, a sac protrudes from a hole in the vertebrae containing spinal fluid, tissue, nerves, and part of the spinal cord. Despite surgery to close the opening, children with spina bifida may experience some degree of paralysis and loss of sensation below the damaged vertebrae. This is what happened in Beatrice’s case. Shortly after she was born, she was taken to an orphanage whose staff arranged for her to have the surgery she needed to survive. Following that operation, it was discovered that Beatrice had lost feeling in her lower body. That certainly didn’t stop this beautiful little girl from embracing her babyhood, however.
