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.

“Hope” was born in November 2005. She has dark eyes and she is an amazing little girl. She gets along well with other children. She is very smart. When an adult explains something to her, she listens carefully and makes her findings. When she is interested in something, she asks questions. She is inquisitive, curious and communicative. She is also described as being charming and affectionate. This child really needs a loving family. It is believed that whatever developmental delays she may have from institutional life can be overcome. She is a cheerful girl and she likes helping take care of the younger children. She is a truly beautiful girl. She was transferred to the older child orphanage toward the end of 2008. She is so gentle and waits patiently for someone to show her attention or affection. She has a confirmed HIV-positive diagnosis. The chances of a child this age with HIV being adopted by a local family in this particular region are almost zero. The most recent photos were taken in summer 2009.
There are occasionally children in China with HIV who are in need of international adoptive families. The placing agencies who have advocated for orphans with HIV in China include Adoption Advocates International, Lifeline, Wasatch and Great Wall. Exceptions can sometimes be made to China’s eligibility requirements when adopting a child with HIV.
These children were on the photolisting website http://waitingchildren.wordpress.com/ . Email me if you need contact info.
This little boy is 4 years old (August 2006). He is living with HIV. He also has CP but he walks and runs. He is happy, outgoing and always has a smile on his face. He was transferred to the older child internat in August 2011. A recent adoptive family that met him says he is a “total sweetheart”. He is loved by the caregivers and he is always, always smiling. Additional photos available.
The baby house provides very good medical care and the children have access to ARVs. It is an easy adoption-friendly region. The children are able to play outside. Nutrition is basic although the children get fresh fruit for a snack. The children appear to be healthy and the nannies are caring.
This little boy is waiting for a family. He was born August 2007 and is at risk of being transferred away from the baby house. He is living with HIV. Not only is he handsome, but he is calm, curious and friendly. He speaks in sentences. When playing, he can complete a series of successive operations, matches objects, knows the different colors, builds a compound with a house, gate and bench. His self-care skills are fully developed: he eats carefully using the correct utensils, brushes his own teeth, and he dresses himself although he needs help with buttons and shoelaces. Photos available.
