‘Siri’ was born July 2010. She does not have any siblings. Her description was written in August 2012: She is an affectionate, attentive and sociable girl. She loves to play with her favorite toys and she takes very good care of them making sure nothing gets broken, then she puts them away when she is done playing. She takes an active part in the games and activities at the baby house. She shows a keen interest and she likes to look at books, pictures and cartoons. She understands adult requests and can carry out simple instructions. There are four different colors, like chalk on a blackboard. She is beginning to speak and willingly repeats syllables for adults, telling tales, poems and songs. Her motor skills and well developed; she walks, runs, jumps and climbs. Her developments of movement are normal. She likes playing outdoor games and doing exercises using a drum. Her cultural and hygiene skills are well formed: she can partially dress and undress herself, uses a towel and the potty. She likes to get dressed up in dresses and wear pigtails and braids and when asked, she always chooses a bow. She eats selectively but gently, uses a napkin, gestures and says ‘thank you’. She sleeps peacefully. Her memory, attention and thinking is correct and she perseveres in the classroom. Siri is living with HIV.
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.

10mo boy, brown eyes, brown hair
He often ran up to the door,
he heard steps … – he is waiting.
The boy firmly believes -
Once MAMA looking for, then find.
In bed, eyes closing,
to dispel any worries of the day,
as he repeats the prayer:
-Mamulechka, find me …
in the pockets of hidden candy,
flowers for mom collected.
But left unanswered
prayer children in the night.
And yet, with hope and stubborn,
quietly sitting on the window,
The boy draws the word MAMA
Prints finger on … when you look at him, once you see how he is growing into a handsome and tall man. The children in children’s homes grow up too fast – they have no children’s problems… but he is still very young, only 6 years! And he is clever, detailed, beautiful eyes, and just a nice kid with which you can not remain indifferent. He’s intelligent, fairly well developed (no mental delays) and smart. He really needs a mom. His biological mother was deprived of parental rights and the biological father is unknown. He has been in the system for a long time, from infancy. He has an older sister, born in 2004 who is currently residing with an aunt (who refused the boy). He has status for international adoption.
Many additional photos available.
Alyona is described as a “well and happy child.” Time is running out for Alyona to get a family! She is 15 years old and HIV+. In less than a year she will age out of the system and not be eligible for adoption. Futures are very bleak for orphans who “age out”. Most choose suicide, crime, or prostitution. The good news is that she has a full grant to cover all adoption expenses! What is so special about this case is that the grant is donated by the adoptive father of her biological sister, already here in the states. Rich, the adoptive father, promised his daughter that he would get her biological sister and two brothers adopted. A daddy cannot break a promise to his daughter. If you are interested in adopting Alyona and/or possibly their two brothers (ages 8 and 10), please contact Project HOPEFUL. Please help all of their dreams come true!
Alyona was enrolled into the boarding school on March 21, 2012. At first sight, it was obvious that the child had a difficult life experience and an old head on young shoulders: Alyona had her own opinion and views for life and interaction with the adults and children. It was obvious that the girl didn’t trust people, however, she had open and outgoing personality, thus it was easy to communicate with her, and she was able to establish rapport. The girl still hopes to maintain contact with her brother and sister (she constantly talks about them in a positive way, which is very good).
The adjustment process was smooth, without conflicts with her peers or younger children. Alyona is peaceful and not rough. She easily connected with the group of children. She was able to immediately attract their attention by her interesting stories about India (she’s got a very vivid imagination)! She shares her room with her friend. She is independent and can keep her room clean and tidy, she can wash her clothes. However, the educators note that the girl requires constant control of an adult person to fulfill the above mentioned tasks in timely manner and organized.
Talking to this girl, it was noted, though Alyona missed lots of school program, since she was constantly moving with her relatives, grandmother and aunts through the different countries of CIS (Commonwealth of Independent Countries), such as Moldova, Russia and Ukraine, the girl has a very good natural intellectual potential. She has a very well developed memory, speech and logical thinking, she can find a way out from a difficult life situation, she is not afraid of the challenges, thus the girl has a very high stamina – the only thing that should be done is to guide all these qualities to the positive target.
From the first days, the teachers assessed her educational level and skills and provided Alyona with the individual school program (curriculum) for her math and writing. The girl works diligently. She has a very beautiful handwriting, she reads good and academics goes easy to her, she only needs to make efforts and to refine herself.
At this point, Alyona has achieved the progress: she became a very good looking child, neat and tidy. School administration, educators and medical staff constantly supervise her. Sometimes the girl can rebel the rules set in the boarding school: she wants to go for a walk in the city and talk to the strangers (it’s typical for her to easily find the common ground with the strangers, and then she considers them her friends). In the result of such misbehavior the girl has conflicts with the educators and serious conversations with the school administration. Besides all of these problems, she has positive qualities: Alyona is honest; she can listen to and hear the reasoning of adults, to analyze and to admit her mistake. The girl understands that she is cared for, and that the people available to her, care about her. With every passing day it becomes obvious that Alyona wants to correct her behavior, she refines herself, however, the child requires constant care, and this care should be directed to her personally. She is constantly waiting for a call from her sister Anya, she gets very happy about this and shows her photos, as well as reads her letters. Along with this, she hopes that she will have future and parents.
Lately, Alyona is a little bit downcast with the sad events that happened in school, and it was noted that the girl feels stressed and scared. She somewhat lost her faith in her better future. Alyona is constantly involved in conversations which help her to understand that she is not abandoned, that she is loved and cared for.

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.
