Positively Orphaned

It’s hard to imagine what it must be like to be an orphaned child, but add an HIV diagnosis to that and things get even gloomier.

Enter Positively Orphaned.  This inspirational blog gives readers opportunities to help these children, from small (children post what they’d love to have, such as roller skates or a guitar) to large (profiles of children who are awaiting adoption).

The site offers a wealth of information like:

  • Grants and funding available for adoptive families
  • HIV medical information
  • Children in need of homes
  • Foster families looking for sponsorship
  • Summer camps for HIV kids
  • Foster and adoption web sites
  • Family blogs of others who have adopted HIV kids
  • Fact sheets
  • Lists of books, films and organizations with more info
  • Health resources
  • A list of HIV orphanages
  • Links to humanitarian organizations
  • Videos
  • Information about supplementing health care costs
  • Sites to sponsor an HIV child
  • Articles and personal stories about adopting HIV orphans

All children deserve a magical childhood.  Thanks to this wonderful blog for helping that happen for more children around the world.

  1. Thank you for keeping this in the minds of those in the country who have forgotten.

  2. I might add that there are many, many children infected and affected by HIV in the U.S. still today, please take a look at our organization, located in the DC/Baltimore metro area and consider an in-kind, financial, or donation of your time. Thank you.
