His name is Porter.
Isn't he a doll? He is an orphan and was recently moved out of the only home he's ever known, his babyhouse, into a mental institution. His crime? Being HIV+.
A family who met him while adopting another child says that he's a delightful 6 year old. He deserves so much better than a life of monotony and neglect.
Could you be his family? I know HIV still scares us here sometimes, but it is a much more managable disease than it used to be. All Porter needs is a chance. For more info and parent support on adopting and raising a child with HIV, please visit http://www.
