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.
