LOVE WITHOUT BOUNDARIES FOUNDATION
October 8, 2009

I first came across LWB right after we adopted our first son from China. I subscribed to "LWB NEWS". Shortly after there was a post about a need for sponsors for a young man who was wheelchairbound because his bones in his legs broke when he walked. He needed surgery to put rods in his legs so he could work. He was an orphan who had "aged out" and so he would have to support himself. My heart went out to him. Fixing his legs seemed like his only hope. Not being an outgoing person, I somehow asked people around me to help sponsor his surgery. When I collected all the funds for his surgery, I sent it thinking tht was it. I knew a young man would have surgery and, Lord willing, would be able to walk one day. To my surprise I received photos of him and updates on his rehabilitation after surgery. Many months later I got additional photos of him walking! i was so thankful for these updates and my only connection to him. The days I got these updates always made the day brighter. Currently he has a job and he is doing well in society. Praise God for Love Without Boundaries.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

receiving updates on the children I sponsored.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very friendly and always willing to help.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

heal more children so they could find a family to love and be loved.
