That sweet little girl is here again! Sveta is from Eastern Europe and is HIV positive.
I’m trying to learn more and more about HIV so I can help people who want to adopt this beautiful pixie!!
I will be perfectly honest, the idea of adopting an HIV positive child with HIV negative children in our home scares the daylights out of me. And its stigma and stigma alone that is causing the scare.
This link below educates you on how hiv is and his not spread. In 25 years absolutely NO casual transmissions of HIV have occured.
In fact, I’m going to copy and paste directly from the website…I’ll also be adding the link to the page on the blogs I’m following…the work they do with HIV children in orphanages is amazing.
HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease, even easier to manage than diabetes. With treatment, people who are HIV positive can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. Positive couples and individuals can now give birth to healthy HIV negative babies.
– People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with the same love, respect, support and acceptance that all people do. HIV is now in every community. The chance that you know somebody with HIV is very likely, yet people are afraid to talk about it due to fear that they will be treated with ignorance.
I too, plan to gain as much knowledge as I can to help Sveta and children like her, to move into loving homes!
Please continue to pray with me for Sweet Sveta, the Lord WILL provide her with a home.
