A Visit to Xinxiang

The foster care team had a great visit to the Xinxiang orphanage and the foster care families today. It was a beautiful fall day, and all the children were excited to have visitors. Our volunteers were so happy  to visit with three of our Henan Cleft Healing Home graduates. Many of you might remember Neil, Isaiah, and Eoin. All three boys are doing beautifully in foster care and have bonded great with their new foster moms. Eoin wins the “Mr. Moose” award as he was quite heavy to hold!

Baby Joseph: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Joseph is a precious 3 month old baby boy from Xinxiang, Henan Province. Joseph was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate and he came to the Henan Cleft Healing Home (HCHH) when he was one month old. After only a short stay at HCHH, he had to be hospitalized for a week for pneumonia and anemia. Finally, he was discharged to HCHH for his further recovery. However, after a few weeks, he had to be readmitted to the hospital due to bleeding in his mouth and nose. He has spent two weeks in the hospital to receive tests, blood transfusions and IV fluids. We are relieved to tell you that the bleeding has stopped and Joseph was able to begin formula again. He was discharged to the loving care of the nannies at HCHH.

One LWB volunteer, Diana Cheng, recently made time during a vacation to visit the program she coordinates, and we asked her to share some of this experience with LWB Community.

Nanny Love

When a thing is scarce, it is precious — Chinese proverb

When Meigan arrived at the Anhui Cleft Healing Home (ACHH) at one month old, she was very serious baby with unilateral cleft lip and palate. Her first few months at ACHH were quite uneventful, and she remained healthy. However, the caregivers could not get Meigan to interact much with them or even to attempt so much as a smile.
