LWB Foster Care Program
Our foster care program
We have dedicated staff in every location who work directly with foster families and visit each child monthly to assess overall health and development. These monthly visits allow us to quickly identify when a child has additional needs, such as supplemental nutrition or medical issues.
- China Foster Care Program
In China, LWB works collaboratively with orphanages to transition children into caring and supportive families living in specially remodeled apartments within the orphanage, providing the children with the individual care needed to reach their full potential.
- Uganda Foster Care Program
In Uganda, LWB is one of the first charities in the region to implement home-based care for orphaned and abandoned children.
Featured success story:
Kenley from China
Because we believe so strongly that no child should grow up in an institution, LWB remains fully committed to providing family-based care for orphaned children like Kenley. Born prematurely, Kenley was critically ill before entering our foster care program in China. With her very own mom and dad to watch over her, Kenley truly bloomed. Rather than spending her days in a crib, like far too many orphaned children, Kenley took daily walks with her mother, charmed the shopkeepers at the local market, and began playing each day with the neighborhood children. Even more importantly, she formed a deep and secure attachment to her foster family. The emotional connections formed in foster care can impact a child for a lifetime. When Kenley was chosen in the fall of 2017 for domestic adoption, her early childhood bonds helped ease her transition to her permanent, forever home.
