HIV Positive Adoption
Sunrise has been approached by several countries to find parents for children who are HIV positive.
There are many children with this disease who may be adopted. Several families have completed adoptions of HIV positive children and more families are in the adoption process.
With modern medical approaches to the treatment of HIV (especially if started early in life) children have a good chance to lead long lives. Obviously, this is not a step anyone should take lightly, or without extensive research. There is a growing number of parents in the US and Canada who are adopting HIV positive children. We are building a library of resources for our clients who choose this path.
If you would like more information please contact one of our Managing Directors.
There are an increasing number of resources in British Columbia for children with HIV. One of these is Camp Moomba a summer camp for children with HIV or Hep C.
