HIV Adoption Toolkit Developed by Christian Agency
Adoption agency Bethany Christian Services (BCS) has developed an HIV adoption toolkit for prospective parents who want to adopt HIV-positive children; the toolkit informs the families about the virus, Baptist Press (BP) reports. BCS created the kit in collaboration with a medical and social professional team. The $75 kit provides three webinars and a PDF collection featuring an overview of the HIV pandemic, medical issues and challenges families may face, and the psychosocial issues families should consider, such as stigma and disclosure.
