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.
