In an article I read in the Star Tribune on adopting children with HIV, they discussed a couple who was intentionally adopting someone from Ethiopia with HIV. They talked about what they might need to teach him and what he may already know.
Amy, an Eritrean sophomore at the University of Minnesota-
There aren't any stereotypes that she saw in the article. Ethiopia and Eritrea have millions of people with aids and articles like this continue to bring awareness to the issue in that area, Amy said. The fact that the couple was willing to help out and adopt says a lot of good things about them. It is important that Ethiopia is not forgotten. The lack of knowledge on medication and the difficulty finding resources in Ethiopia justifies the couple questioning how much the boy knew about his disease.
