Little Boy with HIV – Photolisting

Vadim was born in 2001. He lives in an orphanage in Ukraine. He is HIV-positive. He was living with a single mother in a foster-care situation with the intention of becoming an adoptive family but the foster-mother got married and had a baby and decided not to adopt Vadim even though he was expecting it. Obviously he was very hurt by this. He did not adjust well to the new situation and began acting aggressively for more attention so now he is living in an orphanage. He also has some learning issues (probably ADD). He would do best in a home where he is an only child or the youngest child. Costs to adopt Vadim are in the $22K-$25K range which includes in-country fees, travel, lodging, passport, visa.
