Pinkrose- they are both special needs. Both are HIV+, from their mother. It will be a while till we see if they have it or if it i just antibodies from her.
I have had it in my heart for a very long time to adopt an HIV+ child, now I am getting 2!!
Ukraine does not allow photolisting for "healthy" children, just SN ones. I do not consider this SN, I believe they are special children, made JUST for me! :)
PS- for anyone who is going to ask..no, I am NOT afraid of them dying, HIV+ is no longer a death sentence at all. Most live well into their 70's.
I am more likely to die of insanity in the next few years :p
And no, I am NOT afraid the others will "catch" HIV. There are universal precautions which we will all follow. HIV is quite hard to catch unless you are sharing needles...and if my kids are doing that, trust me, THEY better be afraid LOL
