Families Needed Immediately: 13 & 14 Month Old Boys with Repaired Cleft Lip

This week we have two urgent referrals and four more coming this month that we need to match with families who have their paperwork already in China. Two young boys, 13 & 14 months old, with repaired cleft lip and unrepaired palate who just had their surgeries and are in a Love Without Boundaries healing home & are available for immediate adoption. We have less than 3 weeks to place them, so the time to act is now!

We are currently waiving all AWAA transfer fees as well.

Both boys are Log in Date only files and need a family who has a dossier already logged in China. Both children have recently been visited by an AWAA Storyteller medical team and doctor so additional information is also available, and we can connect families with our team who met these adorable children. Both boys are currently in a Love Without Boundaries healing home while they recuperate from their recent cleft lip surgery and are receiving incredible care right now.

Below is some general information on the boys, but extensive information on these and other children available can be found by clicking HERE.

Chisholm  |  13 months old  |  Repaired cleft lip, unrepaired palate

Chisholm entered the healing home in early December. He isn’t anxious in his new environment at all and is quick to smile. Chisholm is playful and active. When a toy is offered to another child, he will scoot quickly in his walker and get to the toy before anyone else can. Chisholm really enjoys playing with all the other kids in the home. He received his cleft lip repair surgery in late December and is healing well.

Robbie   |  14 months old  |  Repaired cleft lip, unrepaired palate

Robbie joined the Love Without Boundaries healing home in December. Not your typical underweight child with cleft, 14-month-old Robbie is one of the chubbiest and happiest little guys we’ve ever seen!  Don’t smile TOO big, Robbie, we can’t have you popping your stitches!

Due to having received a large number of files recently and having matched all families in our program who have a dossier in China and are open to boys, there is no wait time currently in our program for a boy with minor needs commonly seen in China, as we are also due to receive 40 boy files in the upcoming months!!

To request to review one of these boys, please contact us at or by phone at 800-429-3369. A family who is currently approved for a girl can amend their home study and immigration form and consider adopting one of these sweet children and a family currently with a dossier in China can switch their dossier to be matched with one of these adorable boys.

We are also expecting another 4 new young boy files that are LID only to arrive this month and will again need more families with dossiers already in China ready to be matched with them when they arrive.

Male | 14 months old | cleft lip/palate

Male 1


Male | 18 months old | congenital heart defect

Male 2


Male | 23 months old | ear abnormality

Male 3


Male | 37  months old | congenital heart defect

Male 4

As you can see, we have a great need for more new families with dossiers already in China, who are ready to be matched with these referrals, too, in the weeks to come!  If you are interested in one of the above four boys coming this month, please contact us at or 800-429-3369 to discuss your next steps.

Thank you for helping us advocate through your social networks for these boys to find their forever families. We trust and know that God has a wonderful plan for each of their lives.
