Pretty and Smart Girl Needs a Family ~ Waiting Child Photolisting

“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.

Eastern Europe Waiting Child – Boy

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.

Urgent Plea for Little Girl w/ HIV & CP

It is believed this photo is of a little girl named Irina taken in 2006 when she was nearly 3 years old. We think she was born in December 2003.
An article from December 1, 2006 states: “Now urgent problem with one of our patients Irina who is nearly 3 years old. She is HIV-positive but she does not need special treatment; the virus can sleep in her body for many years (this may mean she is a slow-progressor). It was disturbing her underlying disease – cerebral palsy and she needs a qualified neurological treatment which we cannot provide in our hospital. The children with this pathology go to the orphanage for children with central nervous system damage and mental disturbances (“the mental institute”). We are working in this direction but it’s hard to say how long the girl will be in our center. Frankly, we are scared to send the child to people suffering from phobias about HIV. It is excusable for an uneducated man, but should never be in health care workers. A year ago, she held her head badly, could not sit there and just not realized was smiling, but now she crawls, stands, leans on the barrier and is beginning to talk. The children at the hospital are loved, they are neatly dressed and well-trimmed” (see younger picture).
The hospital she was in at the time of the article seems to be a decent place, but it looks like she has been transferred to the mental institute. It is our hope to find a special family very soon who can help her with HIV and CP, and also with any emotional help she may need.
According to the article, there are other children in this region with HIV who are also in need of adoptive parents. The other HIV+ child specifically mentioned in the article is a boy named Sergey who we believe to be younger than Irina, but born before December 1, 2006. There is also a boy born May 2008 in this region.
Please feel free to copy and paste this information in to any of your groups, social media, blogs, etc to help find a family for this little girl. This is her only chance.
