HIV Disclosure Article

24 Aug

This article was posted on HIV Adopt Yahoo Group.  It is very interesting and informative.  It was helpful to me as I continue to sort through our own disclosure issues. 

Here is one of its key points –
“Disclosure of HIV status is not a one-time event, but rather a process, involving ongoing discussions about the disease as the child matures cognitively, emotionally, and sexually.”
