More on HIV+ Adoption

There are many great things going on in the world of HIV+ adoption and although I mentioned this in my World AIDS Day post, I want to highlight two things today.

First, take a moment to read this article in the current issue of People magazine about my friend, Carolyn, and her family.

Second, take a look at this short video done by Carolyn and the folks at Project Hopeful.  Make sure you have the facts about HIV.

If you are considering adoption, please take a moment to think about a child living with HIV. If you have questions, please check out:

Positively Adopted

You can change a life by supporting families adopting children with HIV, or by adopting a child yourself.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    I don't mean to put you on the spot but I recall you used to be involved in "A-Hope" which (I think) was also involved in HIV orphan care. Does it still exist?

      You're not putting me on the spot at all. Yes, AHOPE serves HIV+ children in Ethiopia. You can find them on the web at: http://ahopeforchildren.org/
