Water -> Lithium (in a Fusion reactor)

Pulling my brains out here. And I simply cannot get it to work. Picture the following:

You have a fusion reactor and your only input is a bonded H2O:


O-H
.|
H

I can split it to Hydrogen and Oxygen, of course. That much is simple. And I can also manage to fusion it in a way that most or all output is Helium.

But I want want step further: How can I get Lithium out of it? If anyone has a design idea, please let me know!

Well, youre going to have to deal with the fact that water has 10 protons, and lithium only has three. You're going to have waste each pass, so you'll need to deal with that.

Actually, if you allow the use of a fission laser, this is how you do it:
