HIV N AIDS INFECTED AND AFFECTED FAMILIES
The church must see that the story of AIDS is not about epidemiology, economics, or statistics. Rather it is the story of pain, anguish, fear, and neglect.
Counseling is the second area of opportunity for the church to work with those infected with the HIV virus and AIDS. They and their families are in serious need.
The stigma against HIV is alive and well in the US and the world, and no where does this play out more poignantly than in the thousands of orphans with HIV. Adoptive parents are often afraid of adopting a child with HIV. How sick will these children be? What is their life expectancy? How much risk do they pose to other family members? Our guest are Dr. Jan Piatt, Medical Director at the Bill Holt Pediatric HIV Clinic at Phoenix Children's Hospital , Kate Foley, Social Worker and Associate Director of Outreach at Spence-Chapin Adoption Agency, and Traci Heim a Director for Project HOPEFUL, a nonprofit bringing education and encouragement for those adopting children with HIV. She is also a parent to 10 children through adoption, including a child with HIV.

Anthony Johnson is a community advocate, a volunteer with a number of organizations, creator and organizer of an HIV social/support group, and 18 year survivor of HIV. A few years ago I was ready to end my life because of the health issues I was facing and the isolation I was dealing with. I have fought that and am now in the best health I have ever been in (physically, emotionally, and spiritually). One of the things I have done is to publicize my life living with HIV and the obstacles I have overcome though different local and national campaigns and media interviews. The reason for this is to reduce stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and help people understand that though this is now a manageable disease in many ways, there are still issues that many of us face. We should not live in fear and shame for having a very HUMAN condition. I am also a fulltime student earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology and only have a few more weeks to go. I am excited because I know that the next part of my journey will be just as AMAZING as the last.
