Several babies in an Eastern European country are in need of international adoptive parents. Time frame for the total adoption from start of homestudy until the child is in the home is about 10-11 months. Total adoption costs exceed $40K. The babies have a confirmed HIV-positive diagnosis. They are in a decent (specialized) baby home and have access to excellent medical care. Several children have come home from this orphanage and are doing well. Their photos and date of birth can be shared with a serious adoptive family. Single mothers may apply and will be accepted on a case by case basis. It may be possible for unrelated children to be adopted simultaneously (case by case) and many other children with HIV in this region other than the ones listed here are in need of immediate placement. These particular children are all Caucasian and under one year of age. Please use the contact form for additional info.

This little girl was born June 2011 to an HIV+ birthmother. The children in her region are monitored for 18 months before a diagnosis is given to the child, so we are unsure at this time if Paloma is positive or not. If she is not, she will most likely be adopted by a citizen of her country or by a foreign family who has been on the waiting list for a healthy child referral. If she ends up being + she will go on RR. She does not have any siblings. She was born early, but has not had any problems associated with premature birth. Her nannies say that she is a calm girl. Baby photo also available. Multiple unrelated children can be adopted simultaneously from her region and there are some adorable little boys waiting. Married couples and Single Mothers can adopt. No more than 6 children in the home. Applicants should be no more than 45 years older than the child. Three trips are required. Total program fees about $35K.

I tried to fix the red-eye in this image but it didn’t work very well – the baby’s eyes are normal.
This boy “V” above will be registered for international adoption in June 2011. I think he is positive but will need to confirm.
This is the same baby girl above and below. I think she is positive.
These babies are all in the same HIV/AIDS orphanage with the 1-2 year olds and the 3-4 year olds. Multiple unrelated children can be adopted from this orphanage. The babies in this orphanage are not released for international adoption until they are 18 months old. The children above were all born to HIV-positive birthmothers, although not all of the children are living with HIV. I can inquire about specific children as this orphanage does have PCR test. These babies are not yet registered for international adoption although it may be possible to start your adoption paperwork before the child is registered so you are ready to travel when he/she becomes available. The HIV-negative babies will be adopted by local families. If you start your paperwork in advance, you may be able to adopt one of the HIV-positive babies close to the 18 month age. The first 8 pictures were taken in October 2010. Only married couples can adopt from this country and one of the parents must be within 45 years of the age of the child. I am happy to answer any questions I can about the general adoption process from this country.
