Its hard to see someone from anything. But watching a child die is the hardest thing anyone could probly bear. I read how some parents give birth to a child while HIV positive. Then their child has it and doesn't live a long life. My heart goes out to these children.

I to think watching a child die is really hard to do. As you know that child has had the chance to really experience life. I think it is sad when parent scratch HIV. I think it is even sadder when they know they have HIV and continue to do things, than get pregnant. To me that is just wrong. I know not all in all countries. But in some there is medicine a pregnant mother can take while having HIV that prevents the baby from getting it. I am not sure how that works as they share the same blood. Any clues?

Am I blaming the parents? NO. I said I think it is even sadder when they KNOW they have HIV and continue to do things, than get pregnant. There is a big difference. I also stated I know not all countries. But in some there is medicine a pregnant mother can take while having HIV that prevents the baby from getting it. I am not sure how that works as they share the same blood. I have not once blamed anyone.
