Love Without Boundaries is a charity that makes a real difference in the lives of children every day. I have seen this first hand because LWB funded critical medical and foster care that my daughter received in China. I have photos of my daughter in the hospital grinning from ear to ear because LWB not only funded her surgery but brought her a giant teddy bear to cheer her up! LWB is an organization with great heart that delivers vital services to children in need. I will be forever grateful for what they have done.

I have been volunteering with LWB for three months now. I have followed their work for about a year and finally decided that I wanted to be a part of something that was actually making a differnce in the world and in these children's lives. I am the coordinator for the Secondary and HIgher Education Program in Hunan and I have seen the difference that this program is making in these students lives. I have seen the pictures, read the reports and seen hope sustain these kids through some very difficult situtaions. These kids are given an opportunity to change their lives and the lives of the families through the money that people donate to them. Education is a vital part of all out lives and these kids are working so hard to make their dreams come true. LWB is helping them to do that and it is awesome to watch!

I have volunteered for LWB for coming up on 6 years, in various capacities, currently as the Director of Nutrition and Orphanage Assistance. No way would I still be volunteering for a charity I didn't believe in. So much amazing work is done. The donors are wonderful. The volunteers give so much. Children's lives are truly affexted, one child at a time.

Our daughter was part of the LWB program in Loudi. She came to us on-track developmentally, healthy, well-adjusted, and was clearly used to being in a family setting. Foster care is so important and LWB not only provides sponsors for foster care, but also keeps monthly records for each child. After our adoption was complete, we received numerous pictures and reports of our daughter's early life. Precious pieces of her history that we all will treasure forever.

My child was served by medical (cleft repair) , education, and foster care. She was five when we met this spring and was on target developmentally and obviously was well loved and cared for. What could have been a challenging adoption was relatively easy. My daughter's care prepared her for accepting the love of a family and attending school at grade level. We are blessed and lucky that our daughter was cared for by Love Without Boundaries.

Our daughter received exceptional nutritional assistance through this organization as an infant. We were SO grateful once we met her and got her home that she was healthy and well nourished. This made such a difference in her development. I can't thank them enough!

Our family has been personally affected by LWB's amazing educational program. We were blessed to adopt our 4 year old son from Jinjiang, China in Sept. 2010. His orphanage is part of the LWB nutritional, educational, & medical program. Our was son was a student in the phenomenal preschool that was offered by LWB to his orphanage. He was given the opportunity to attend daily class and I know he truly enjoyed that time with his classmates and teachers. LWB gave our son a precious gift...the gift to be noticed and cared for...the gift to be part of a structured environment where he was loved as an individual and encouraged to excel and have fun.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my son's amazing love to learn and ability to bond with us because of the bonds he had with his teachers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

love to see more children be able to be part of this wonderful program.

Love Without Boundaries is an awesome organization that helps children with medical needs as well as provide foster care for institutionalized children in China. Working in adoptions from China, I will sometimes come across a child that might not be adopted and is in dire need of help just to survive. I know I can contact LWB and they will immediately do everything they can to help the child. Whether it's through their medical, educational, or foster care program, LWB has saved or greatly improved the lives of hundreds of children in China.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my role as an adoption coordinator. They have helped many of the children I have helped find families for and many of the children that are left behind.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to multiple the organization so that it could help even more children!

I found this organisaztion through friends. For quite a while I have been reading a the news letters and the stories on facebook but not yet contributing more than spreading the word. However some time ago I read about a young lady from an orphange who manage to pass an univesity test but could not afford the tution fee. We have for some years lived in China and our children is getting a great education. Education is so important and for many children and youth here in China it is their only way to a bettter life. But without many there is no way. So we gave a litlle and talked a lot and spread the word to friends. The our children decided to give their allowance and slowly the tution fee of 1500 dollar was raised. The day when I got the meassage that the girl could sign up for her courses I was so happy. I am so grateful for the work Love without boundaries is doing. I am proud to be able to be a part of a organization that helps children and young people to reach their potential and dreams!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping this young lady to be able to go to the university.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make more people discovered this organization and that will hopefully make more children in China found their forever families and/or get a better life.

Our daughter was in the Love Without Boundaries foster care program in Loudi, China in 2006 prior to her adoption. We are forever grateful for the program. Our daughter had a family that gave her love, affection, and attention that she might not have received had she been one of many in an orphanage. She adjusted very well to her forever family because of that individualized care. Everyone at Love Without Boundaries are heroes to so many children and their families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daughter's life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I have no suggestions for change. Love Without Boundaries is an exemplary non-profit organization.
