It’s been a rough week for us, but boy did this smile brighten our day! #smiles #meltyourheart
What a difference love has made in Herakles! The nannies at LWB’s True Children’s Healing Home have been doing an amazing job!
Etan LOVES to go on walks around town with his foster grandpa. Looks like grandpa enjoys these walks, too!
Charlie and Santiago from LWB’s Starbridge Healing Home are working on their motor skills while playing footsie!
Jasmine (formerly Lauren with LWB) is working hard to bring in funds to support the nutrition program at her orphanage. As excited as she is to have a forever family, she cannot forget the friends she left behind, like the ones she is pictured with here. She remembers what it was like to be lonely. She remembers clearly what it was like to be hungry. This is why she committed to raising $1,200 to help support the nutrition program at Liupanshui Believe in Me School. In just a couple short weeks, Jasmine has raised double her goal! We would love for you to join us in helping Jasmine’s dream grow even bigger on this #GivingTuesday. Would you please consider making a donation in Jasmine’s honor to help her give back to the friends she loves so deeply? http://www.lovewithoutboundaries.com/jasmine
We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the hospital at Fudan University. Their medical team has offered LWB the opportunity to give five children cleft surgeries at no cost. We only have to cover travel and nanny expenses, so this is a wonderful opportunity! Four of the children will be coming from Guangdong province, including this little beautiful, three year old boy.
Herakles and all of us at LWB want to thank everyone who bought a shirt for National Adoption Month. We sold over 400 t-shirts, with an $11 profit per shirt after printing! That means $4675 will be split between Dave Thomas Foundation and LWB to help even more children find families. WOOHOO! To everyone who bought a shirt – they will be shipped to you around November 15th. Thanks so much!

Herakles was born in rural Guizhou Province with a heart defect and an intestinal obstruction. Through LWB’s Medical Program, he received life-saving surgery for both conditions.
In August Herakles arrived at LWB’s True Children’s Healing Home (TCHH) in Fujian, where he is receiving one-on-one care from experienced nannies and an on-site medical team.
Life in rural China is hard on medically fragile babies. Healing and growing are tall orders for little bodies, and these tasks are much harder when coupled with post-operative challenges. Babies healing from surgery need not only one-on-one care, but optimal environmental conditions, including Featured Childair conditioning, central heat, and a bit of “floor time” to exercise their muscles, play, and learn.
After a few weeks at TCHH, Herakles is settling in well. At nine months old, he can now sit independently, which is important when there are so many toys to explore. He is gaining weight and interacts well with his nannies. He likes to show that he is happy and content by singing, which makes everyone smile. Herakles is definitely on the road to cuteness and health. This young boy is in need of a few additional monthly sponsors at $50 per month, or $25 per month for a shared sponsorship. Sponsors will receive monthly updates and photos.
Wouldn’t you like to be part of Herakles’ story of hope and healing?
