  1. Oh my goodness!!!! This gave me a HUGE smile and chills!!! And, Tom stood here the whole time and watched it, which is quite remarkable since he usually doesn't care much for things that I show him! ;)

    Nance, HIV care has made such strides and is so "normal" that I'm almost embarrassed to call it special needs adoption!!! I mean, we are shocked by the easiness of caring for an HIV child (but of course there are different stages and complications can arise, which I know you're aware of!), and it really only means an extra 2-4 bloodtests per year, medications given at the SAME times every day, simply being careful around the child's blood, and keeping them well/warm/healthy since their immune system is lower. We already discussed adopting an HIV+ older girl from Russia sometime next year, but I don't know if we can go through that awful dossier and the terrible expense of a Russian adoption so soon after this one! But, there are some gorgeous and otherwise healthy children waiting in Eastern Europe. Victor needs to be in a good place emotionally, physically, etc. before we start any process again! :)

    Thanks for always supporting us!!!! You're the best!


About Me

I married my high school sweetheart 26 years ago. Ken and I and have ten of the greatest kids from different parts of the world. We are hoping to bring a few more kiddos home! Throughout the years in our adoption journeys it has made us want to bring some kind of hope to these kids. This blog will hopefully allow us the opportunity to advocate for some of the orphans in the world. Join us in our journeys and the day to day happenings in raising 10 kids.....and counting.
