Waiting Children

On this page you will find a list of children in Asia currently waiting for their families. Please contact the agency listed  for each child for more information on adopting these children. We are not affiliated with any specific agencies but work to help advocate for these children to find their forever families. If you know of a child with HIV that could use some help finding their forever family please contact us at: lilyprojectblog@gmail.com



There are currently very few children with HIV listed and waiting to be adopted from China. If you are at all interested in adopting children with HIV, please talk with your agencies and let them know. The agencies can push the orphanages to start doing the paperwork of children with HIV. Many orphanages consider children with HIV to be “unadoptable” but that is absolutely not the case! This is a very manageable special need to care for and it is no longer a death sentence.

Josh (age 13) – URGENT! Josh will age out in January! He has a $3000 Special Blessings Grant with Holt International. He is an active boy and enjoys drawing.

Frankie (age 6) – Frankie is 6 years old and has HIV and Cerebral Palsy. He is a special kid who would thrive in a family to love and encourage him! (DOB 8/2010) He is on the SHARED LIST at this time, but Holt still has a $3000 grant available for him.

Lydia (age 12) – Lydia is longing for a family of her own. She is extroverted and active and gets along well with other children. She has less than a year and half for a family to choose her before she ages out.

Bethany (age 13) – Bethany will age out in May 2018 so she urgently needs a family to choose her. She has seen other children from her group home be adopted and she hopes she will one day be adopted too!

Sadie (age 6) – Sadie is an active child who likes singing, dancing, painting and especially roller skating.

Maya (age 4) – Maya likes exploring and playing outside!

Waiting Kids in India


If you are looking for a child that used to be listed on this page and their link is no longer here, hopefully that means the child now has a family coming for them. For a few of the children, it means they aged out before a family chose them.

To those of you who are helping advocate for these kids by sharing their link – thank you!
