World AIDS Orphan Day...

I know every Wednesday I post a funny (sometimes) picture. Well, here's a not so funny picture...

Today is World Aids Orphan Day. I feel like when I mention something like this I am "Preaching to the Choir." Most of the people that read this blog are adoptive moms. So, no soapboxing, but I didn't feel right just posting one picture today.

"World AIDS Orphans Day will occur on 7 May. More than 25 million children worldwide have lost one or both parents to AIDS – equivalent to the number of people living in New York, Paris, Rome and Bangkok combined. In sub-Saharan Africa alone, 12 million children have been orphaned by the pandemic."


  1. Thanks for the post. Glad that the flu is no longer a resident at your house.


  2. Thank you for reminding us about the greater needs in the world...It is truly heart breaking.
