It all began in the United States when one mother felt led through prayer to consider adopting a sibling set of three children, one of whom was HIV+, from Ethiopia. You can read our Founder’s Story HERE.
Project HOPEFUL’s work expanded throughout the US and the organization was at the forefront of a movement in orphan care to provide homes for some of the most vulnerable and needy orphans around the world. Today, Project HOPEFUL has helped hundreds of orphaned kids with HIV+ come home to loving families through our education and support efforts. Project HOPEFUL continues to educate Americans about the “do-ability”of HIV+ adoptions. (www.projecthopeful.org)
In Winter of 2011, concerned Canadians with a heart to see adoptions in our country expand so that more orphans with HIV/AIDS and other special needs could find families contacted Project HOPEFUL to partner with them to create Project HOPEFUL Canada after reading about the Twietmeyer family in People magazine and seeing some interviews on television. (part 1 & part 2)
This blog was created to help meet the needs of Canadians for current education and information about Canadians adoption resources.
Project HOPEFUL believes that through education social stigma can be eradicated, and that the TRUTH about HIV/AIDS will knock down the fear-based barriers which keep some of the most vulnerable orphans waiting outside of families.
We believe that giving our ALL for even just ONE child is well worth the effort. We’ve seen that it really is possible to change the world ONE life at a time. And in doing this what we have discovered is that one by one our impact adds up. The effects of positive change are GREAT!

ALL for ONE,
