HIV+, 6-9

HIV is a virus that claims many innocent lives when children do not have access to antiretroviral medications. Fortunately, it is treatable and the children who have access to medication and adhere to their treatment can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease, even easier to treat than pediatric diabetes.

HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and intravenously (such as used needles and blood transfusions).

Children born to women with the virus have a chance of becoming HIV positive due to mother-to-child-transmission. These children are innocent carriers of the virus. The children you see below are currently living in institutions. Sadly, if they end up aging out of institutional life, there is a high likelihood they will be ill on the streets in a life of crime.

Recent laws in the US and Canada allow for these children to be adopted. Being in a loving family helps them access medical care and gives them the opportunity to have a normal, healthy, productive life. They can go to college, get married, give birth to healthy babies and live long enough to meet their grandchildren.

Here is an overview of the medical aspects of living with a child with HIV.

Eriq

Eriq 2

Boy, born 2008
P-OD
HIV Positive/Perinatal Infection

 

Eriq’s health is stable and asymptomatic with favorable progress. Viral charge is undetectable and his lymphocytes CD4 are elevated. He has good adherence to TARGA treatment. His medical prognosis is favorable and he doesn’t have any other illness.

Eriq is a loving, helpful, and smiley child well adapted to his surroundings. He does independent activities according to his age. He is a participative and a cheerful child who likes to get the attention from adults, being able to show affection for people that he had known for a short time. He likes to kiss and being caressed. He is a playful and polite child with a manageable behavior.  He has a sister who was adopted in 2012.

His overall development is adequate for his age; however, it is important to strengthen his attention. He has adequate self-esteem for his age and he is emotionally stable. He has a tendency of emotional lability with low tolerance to frustration. This will be improved with the attention of loving and assertive parents that provide the affection and the education that he needs.

Because of his health condition it is important that he gets integrated to a family that has the personal sources, emphasizing the empathy, assertiveness, patience, tolerance and love. The family that adopts this boy must have sample knowledge of his background and his current health condition to understand his needs and provide the child the love and time that he requires and to be involved in his medical care.

Eriq is currently available for adoption and waiting for his forever family! The central authority in the children’s country of origin are the legal custodians and guardians of the children and Open Door has been given the privilege to assist in finding permanent homes for these children. Agency has photos and videos and will be happy to share them with an interested family.
