Vanya needs a family

Okay. Another sweet boy needs a forever family. Please, if you or anyone you know is considering adopting a little boy — HIV+ — Vanya wants to meet YOU!

Eli Project recently featured him and I pray that a family will soon respond.

Just look at this face:



  1. Hi. I have been following your blog awhile now. We adopted two kids from Ukraine in 2008. I just met a couple who would like to adopt a special needs baby from Ukraine. Do you have information on young children with special needs? I know they have been looking on Reece’s Rainbow. I was also wondering if the one year registration waiting period was waived for special needs kids? Any information you can provide would be helpful.

  2. Kari – I hope you don’t mind if I respond. I’ve been researching this topic for a while since my husband and I were hoping to adopt a baby from Eastern Europe as young as possible with special needs. I’m finding the youngest is about 18+ months for Ukraine and 12+ months for Russia. I’m about to advocate for a gorgeous baby girl who is under 6 months right now so a family who starts paperwork now should be able to adopt her when she is about 10-14 months old if they do everything quickly. I also know of a gorgeous baby girl with HIV in Ukraine who will be registered for international adoption soon.

    Marianna – I will advocate for Vanya. Thank you for posting his info. He is such a beautiful boy and I will do everything I can to try to find his family.
