August 2018: Hope

We had to wait quite a long time for the lab results from Nairobi. Unfortunately, they confirmed that Hope is infected with HIV. (It is not possible to detect the virus in children who are younger than 2.)

Nevertheless we don't lose courage. Nowadays there is effective medication available in Kenya und Hope is doing remarkably well. She is already as tall as Natalie (although Natalie is almost a year older).

It must be stressed that there is no danger of infection for the other children. The latest findings essentially rule out the risk that children infect each other while playing, even when they have open wounds.
