Project HOPEFUL is not an adoption agency. Project HOPEFUL assists adoption agencies in advocating for particular waiting children from around the world. If you are interested in joining our efforts by becoming a Child Sponsor or if you are seeking to adopt a child living with HIV or other special needs, you may email us at Waiting Children.

If you are an agency representative and would like for Project HOPEFUL to advocate for a particular child, please email us here for more information.

For more information on the adoption journey, click here.

Blessings on the journey!

The children listed below have been waiting for a family to find them and commit to bringing them home. These children are truly overlooked. Each child has a FIG Fund that will help offset adoption costs for his or her forever-family once they are officially matched.  Funds donated to a child will stay with that child and will be released as expense reimbursements once a family is officially matched with the child.  If, for some reason, the funds can not be used by that child, Project HOPEFUL will re-allocate the funds to another waiting child.

Please help us identify a home and a forever family for these children or consider making a tax-deductible gift to help get them home.  To protect their privacy, we have changed their names on this site.

Note:  these children are being advocated for by the agency listed under their name.  Project HOPEFUL does not have independent information about any of these children.
