      #206685 - 09/10/06 07:12 PM

I am hiv+ and my husband of 4 years is negative. I was dignoised hiv+ when I went for physcials for adoption. This just shattered my dreams when my doctor told me it is not possible for us to adopt because I am hiv+. I have read a couple of postings here with Hiv+ parents and have managed to adopt. Can anyone of you people who have managed to adopt help me with this. I really want to adopt because we have raised this kids expectations and she really need parents. she is a total ophan from a third world country. I dont know how to deal with this please help anyone with the answer can email at prvsmusonda@yahoo.com. I will appreicate.

I am not HIV+ but I went through the whole adoption process with the state and adopted, and there is NO RULE that says peoples' medical statuses prevent adoption!!!!!!!!!!! In fact the literature I have read just says that you just have to have a back up plan laid out if both parents are HIV+, in case both parents get sick and are hospitilized the same time for awhile.. Since your husband is not HIV+, it shouldn't even be an issue.

Now, that's with the state. I don't know how foreign adoptions work, but it should be no more of a show stopper than any other chronic manageable disorder. DEFINITELY PUSH FORWARD!!! THE KIDS NEED YOU!!!!!!

Always beware when unregistered people ask for responses by email. There is a lot of identity theft and fraud out there and noone deserves to be a victim of that because it is easily prevented.

On tablets how many are harmful to growing thin?
I hate myself for the sizes.
Whether it is valid, what they can cause irreversible damage to health?
Now show on TV much as people become invalids as a result of treatment.
