Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.

Synopsis of next three children

These profiles will be for the second group (3 children) that I posted. I will go from top picture to bottom.

6. Clever John was born on Sept 17, 2006. He has been diagnosed with postoperative recessive rachischisis. I am trying to get updates on the severity of his condition , but he looks to be doing great in his pictures. John may also have Hep B, we are going to have further testing done.
Here is one definition I found on...rachischisis - a not uncommon congenital defect in which a vertebra is malformed; unless several vertebrae are affected or there is myelomeningocele there are few symptoms

7.Charlie was born on August 11, 20006, with lower limb discrepency. We can see the "shoe lift" that has been made for him in some of his pictures. Here is the latest report I have on him from his caregivers. "Wei Congzhong entered the foster family on Apr.3 2007, he has been in it for over a year so far, during which under the careful care and rehabilitative training of foster parents, little Zhongzhong who has unequal length of both legs has become a healthy and energetic little boy who can run and walk."

8. Samuel is a super handsome little guy. This picture doesn't do him justice. He was born on Feb. 15, 2008 with congenital left cleft lip and palate degree 3. I am awaiting more information on him, but we do have more pictures. As you can see, at least his lip repair has been done, and perhaps his palate by now as well.

Thanks for looking at these beautiful children with us. I would encourage you to click on the love without boundaries link and watch their 10 minute video on adopting a "special needs" child. It is TERRIFIC!
