While LWB is not an adoption agency, we are passionate about helping every orphaned child possible find a permanent home. We believe that when it comes to adoption, EVERY child deserves a closer look.
Adopt Special Needs
LWB has created an educational website designed specifically to help more children with special needs find permanent homes. With videos and information on a wide variety of pediatric medical needs, this website is a great resource for anyone considering adoption.
LWB strongly advocates for both domestic and international adoption. Our volunteers are available to help with basic Adoption Questions. Additionally, when funding is available, LWB offers Adoption Grants to children in our programs waiting to be adopted and needing extra assistance to receive loving families of their very own.
Adoption from LWB Countries
We have put together a FAQ Page regarding the countries where we work and their current adoption status.
LWB's blog series "Realistic Expectations" was written to help families preparing to adopt from China and covers some important issues to be considered before travel. Another blog series, "The Changing Face of China's Orphans," examines changes in orphanages and Chinese adoptions.
Request for Child Information
LWB is unable to assist with the pre-identification of children for potential adoption. If you adopted a child who may have been in an LWB program, we are happy to check and send you progress reports and photos we have in our files after you have brought your child home. Please complete and submit our Request for Child Information form.
Waiting Child Videos
LWB has created a series of Waiting Child Videos to encourage families to take a closer look at children waiting to be adopted.
