20 Years of Hope: Hayden

In early 2017, tiny Hayden came into the care of our former healing home in Uganda needing considerable TLC. He was sickly, weighing a scant 5 kilograms (11 pounds) at 13 months of age, and his parents were nowhere to be found. The nannies in the home got right to work loving on this precious […]

20 Years of Hope: Ruth

A beautiful little girl came into this world in the summer of 2017 in a rural community in eastern China. Sadly, at just a few weeks old, she was abandoned into orphanage care — most likely because she had been born with a cleft lip and palate. Thankfully, the director at this baby’s orphanage had […]

20 Years of Hope: Bekah

In late 2012, LWB was contacted about a toddler girl with a complex set of heart issues. Her orphanage in China had originally hoped she could be adopted and that surgery could be delayed until that time, but her low oxygen levels and repeated bouts of pneumonia let them know that she couldn’t wait any […]

20 Years of Hope: Twins Max and Matthew

In early September of 2010, a rural orphanage in Henan province called us about a tiny, five-pound baby who had recently been abandoned. Max, as he came to be called, had been found with a life-threatening intestinal condition that often requires surgery within the first 48 hours of life. We knew there was no way […]

Little Ian came into our care under difficult circumstances. He was born in Uganda in the spring of 2015, and sadly, his mother left when he was just four months old. Ian continued living with his father in a rented home, but around the time of his first birthday, Ian’s father disappeared from his life. […]

20 Years of Hope: Yong

A little over ten years ago, the director of an orphanage in rural China reached out to LWB for assistance. A boy in their care was suffering from a fast-growing facial tumor that was affecting his ability to swallow, chew, and breathe. His name was Yong. Yong underwent a battery of tests, and much to […]

20 Years of Hope: Liane

Born in 2013, Liane came to the attention of our China staff when she was one year old. She was living in a rural area of China with her grandparents while her parents sought work far away in a city. Liane had been born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate which greatly hampered her […]

20 Years of Hope: Tobias

Tobias was born in 2018 with a medical condition called anal atresia. With this condition, the anal opening is either blocked or missing altogether, making it terribly difficult (or even impossible) to expel any food that is taken in. Sadly, this led to Tobias’ abandonment and early life in an orphanage setting. Although anal atresia […]
