New look

I have finally got around to updating the look of our blog. Victoria has been home for 8 months, so I guess the blog was not really about our journey to bring home our daughter from Ukraine anymore. I am leaving our adoption time line in the side because I know that can be helpful for other families adopting. I still want to promote adoption and advocate for the adoption of children with HIV, so I want everyone to know that I am still more than happy to answer questions about adoption. If we are ever lucky enough to be able to adopt again in the future, our blog will be used to journal that journey again.

I mainly want our blog to be used to show how normal our life is living with HIV. We do the same things as other families and Victoria is just like any other 4 year old.

Bad blogger

I have been very bad at keeping the blog updated and I'm sorry! My desktop has some kind of virus and I haven't had a chance to take it over to get fixed yet. I have been using my laptop, which is really just a net book, so it is slow and frustrating to do much more than check emails.

I want to give the blog a new look, so that will be coming soon I hope. I also have a few posts I have wanted to do about things like school, what it means for Victoria living with HIV at this point, Victoria's first trip to the beach and some other news I have to share. So, hopefully in the next few days or so I will be able to get some of that accomplished.

To the anonymous poster that left a comment on my last post - I did leave a comment back, but I'm not sure if you saw it. You did not leave a name or any contact information, but I would be happy to speak with you about adopting a child with HIV if you want to email me at
