  1. Looking forward to the rest of your series! I hope it helps open hearts and minds to HIV adoption. As the parent of an amazing girl with HIV, it is barely on our scope of "issues." Thanks!

  2. Hi Rachel — This is great! I've been reading your blog for a while and I'm just so completely honored that you stopped by on Good to Be Crazy today. Can't wait for the rest of the series!

  3. Rachel, just LOVING this series, by the way. You have nailed it with exactly how we were so afraid, then we became more educated, and now we realize that the HIV stigma is nothing but a big fat lie. And like you, it was Sampson and Josie Love who taught us just that. And though our sweet girl isn't HIV+ either, this statement resonated with me:
    "Because we are not the parents to a child with HIV, we have the freedom to speak out for those who are."

    Thank you so much for this series!

  5. Rachel, Thank you so much for writing about this. It is such an important thing and something that God has forced us to think about and consider. Thank you for being a voice to speak on this. Your information will literally save children's lives. Thank you! Can't wait to see precious Amelia in your arms!

  6. rachel. this is crazy. i just read your latest post and then clicked on your HIV tag on the side bar.

    JUST today, i was searching for a particular e-mail and came across an email from the lady from Sampson's agency. i had written her that we would pray for him & for more information on adopting him. God totally used Sampson to open our eyes to HIV+ kiddos, too. Wow. So much hurt in this world, but Sampson's little life was seriously BIG. amazing.
