Matching Mondays - Love helps overcome our challenges!

Sometimes as I am looking over waiting children websites I see things that make me so sad.  Today was one of those times.   Please search your heart and remember no matter what challenge a child may have to live with they will always do better meeting that challenge with a family who loves them and wants them to have success and happiness!

Esther age 16.

Darling sibling group!

Children 0-5 age group who have HIV.
A Note from Reece's Rainbow about children with HIV:  
"HIV is a virus that claims many innocent lives when children do not have access to antiretroviral medications. Fortunately, it is treatable and the children who have access to meds and adhere to their treatment have good long-term prognosis.

Children born to women with the virus have a chance of becoming HIV positive due to mother-to-child-transmission. These children are innocent carriers of the virus. 

The children you see below are currently living in institutions. Sadly, if they end up aging out of institutional life, there is a high likelihood they will be ill on the streets in a life of crime. 

New laws in the US and Canada allow for these children to be adopted. Being in a loving family helps them access medical care and gives them the opportunity to have a normal, healthy, productive life. They can go to college, get married, give birth to healthy babies and live long enough to meet their grandchildren.
