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.

The dynamic duo – here come Rowan and Reisen. Their smile can light up a room and they are certain to win you over with their little boy charm. Both love cars and chocolate. Rowan has been hosted before last summer; Reisen just recently arrived at the orphanage. Both boys have some developmental delays, but are teacher’s favorites. Rowan has grown leaps and bounds since he was last hosted in the US, in every way possible.

Rowan: Loves cars, Happy & Playful, Speech delays; Reisen: Outoging lil bro, Artistic explorer, Friendly

From Dec 2016:
They appeared to be very hyper, having serious behavioral issues and mental delays. They changed families during hosting program because first hosting family couldn’t handle them.

Their sister can be adopted separately from them but adoptive family needs to have approval for three children in order for us to be able to separate them. She lives in a different orphanage from them.

$31.50 has been donated towards the cost of my adoption!
