Free text Through a number of accounts of people's lives, with sometimes tragic circumstances, within the theme of the AIDS epidemic in America, this book presents the need of society to care for children left parent-less by this disease. These children often present special needs on account of substance abuse and neglect by their mothers during pregnancy or possible abuse suffered after birth from drug addicted parents or parents suffering from AIDS. The theme of gay parenting for these children is discussed through accounts of cases of gay adoption.
