I was recently talking to a mom who was considering the adoption of an HIV+ child. I was talking about how we are totally open about Kendi's HIV. She very politely inquired about how we decided to come out like that. Hadn't we thought about how she might feel when she is older? What if she is angry with us about sharing something so private? For a second it really stumped me. How HAD we come up with that decision. It seemed like a lifetime ago. HIV is so NOT an everyday topic around here. Then I remembered. DUH! It's because we're raising her to believe that there's absolutely nothing to be quiet or secretive about. When we talk to people about it we act as if THEY are totally not with it if they don't realize that HIV is a wimpy has-been virus that has very little power in the U.S. (with meds). I smiled all they way through this video tonight. I hope you do too. Spread truth!!
