Children and AIDS
Parents all over the world have lost children of all ages to AIDS. Generations of families have been destroyed in Africa due to this disease. Newspapers report the statistics but children and those who care for them, are the most articulate about the impact of AIDS on their lives.
Nasdijj says it best when asked why anyone would adopt a child with AIDS in his memoir The Boy and the Dog are Sleeping: "Because one comes to you. Because you can."
