Maria
 

 

Here is Maria! Always in the background while her baby is being cared for.  At 39 Maria got good news and bad news. She had tested positive for two things -- pregnancy and HIV.  She had already raised two sons to adulthood.  She had had an interim period of needle drug use.  Raised a Catholic, she knew that there was only one choice -- to keep her new baby and do everything to keep her virus from infecting the developing fetus.

Now, three years later, her health stays good and miracle of miracles, her beautiful new baby "Milagro" stays HIV negative.
