On this page you will find a list of children in China 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. And for the protection of the children, because of the stigma associated with HIV in their culture, many agencies do not share all identifying information about the children.

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.


Bethany (age 13) – AGING OUT – 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!

Christopher (age 13) – AGING OUT – NEWLY LISTED – Christopher ages out in August 2018. He likes to paint (especially pictures of dogs), play basketball and ride a bike.

Frankie (age 7) –  SHARED LIST – Frankie has HIV and Cerebral Palsy. He is a special kid who would thrive in a family to love and encourage him! He is on the shared list at this time, but Holt still has a $3000 grant available for him.

Jeremiah (age 6) – FILE RECENTLY PREPARED – Jeremiah will soon turn 7 and hopes to be adopted into a family where he will have brothers and sisters and pets.

Lee (age 9) and Logan (age 7) – FILES RECENTLY PREPARED – Lee and Logan are biological siblings and need to be adopted together. They have been in a group home since 2014.

Paige (age 10) – FILE RECENTLY PREPARED – Paige enjoys dancing, skating and reading. She has been in the care of a group home since 2013.

Sadie (age 6) – FAMILY FOUND!

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!
