Africa Waiting Children
As an individual considering becoming a parent to one of these special needs children, I recognize the need to keep confidential any photographs, videos, or any other identifying information I may receive while inquiring about a child’s individual file.
I will not publicly “share” any child’s photograph, video, or child information with anyone or at any time engage in such activity. I will not speak negatively about these children nor post any negative comments on blogs, websites, or other media outlets that would in any way be seen as derogatory.
I understand that there is no identifying information (ie. Birth Name, Complete Date of Birth, Country of Origin, etc) available on this site for any child. This will be provided at time of referral.
In the event I breach any of these terms, I understand that Children’s House International may, in its discretion, discontinue its relationship with me resulting in my adoption being stopped, and I also understand any fees paid to that point will not be refundable. Children’s House International may, in its discretion, also file a court suit against me for breach of this confidentiality statement.
After submitting this confidentiality agreement, you will be redirected to a webpage with information on each waiting child currently available for adoption through Children’s House International along with video links if available.
Submitting this statement of confidentiality does not necessarily indicate that your family meets all of the requirements to adopt. We will review the specific parent requirements with a CHI case manager, and contact us if you have any questions by calling 360-383-0623.

Africa Waiting Children
Ali is 8 years old and he loves to play with his friends and smiles often. He has been diagnosed with closed lip Schizencephaly and mild elbow joint limitation on his left side. I see so much potential with this young man that I have named him after the Greatest!
Ethan is a year and a half old (the doctor reports he may be younger) and is a little behind were he should be developmentally; with this he also has failure to thrive. He was found abandoned at one month old in a hospital.
Hana is just 8 years old and is taking on a leader role at her orphanage. She loves to play with the other children, is very active, social and “smiley” as the nannies say. She has tested positive for Hepatitis B and is having follow up tests completed for liver function and viral load.
Luke is only 8 months old. His medicals show that he has hydrocephalus and limb differences/ malformation. His legs are shorter and he only has two toes and two fingers on his left side. Luke is said to be a happy baby and smiles at the nannies. He is otherwise on track developmentally and will bring joy to a loving family.
Mr Takio! I chose this name for him because it means “strong as bamboo” in Japanese, and this guy is strong!! He was found in a trash can when he was just 1 day old and has been diagnosed with mild hydrocephalus, the doctor also reports that he is stunted due to malnourishment. He is now 2.5 years old. He enjoys playing with the other children so much so that some days he skips his nap to play.
TILAHUN and BRUCK
Tilahun is 10 years old and his brother Bruck is just 4 years old now. They have had a rough start at life, the loss of their father, living on the street with their mother until her passing and they are both HIV positive. They give the best dimple smiles!
Workneh has had a tough go at life. He lost his mother almost 2 years ago to HIV and had been living with his uncle after her death. His uncle is no longer able to care for him and his father is unknown. He is 8 years old and is beginning to speak with the help of his nannies; he loves playing with sand, is sometimes shy and has a best friend at the orphanage. Currently there is an Ethnic war taking place in his region so all the children are unable to go to school. He is developmentally delayed and HIV positive.
Special need: Down Syndrome
Zeya has Down syndrome, but is otherwise healthy she likes smiling and playing with the other children and she listens well. While at her new orphanage she has learned self-care activities such as using the restroom and to walk.
