take the p1raw from the v$session_wait for waiting session and this is your hladdr in the query you are looking for.
You should find the hottest child latch yourself, and swap the value of ADDR on line 12 with the value of hladdr of the child latch.
if you execute this query, no rows should come up, because the chance of having an hladdr = 'ADDR' in x$bh is fairly low.
