Once diagnosed, the child will need to be monitored for the amount of virus in the blood (viral load) and the strength of his/her immune system (CD9 count, also called helper T cells). There are more than 75 medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of HIV. These medications decrease the amount of the virus in the body with a goal of undetectable virus in the bloodstream. This treatment will be lifelong and is usually called HAART (Highly Active Antiretroviral Treatment). The most important part of the treatment is to ensure that the doses are taken on time and without missing any doses which helps to prevent resistance by HIV to the medication. The goal of treatment is for the viral load to be undetectable and for the immune system to be strong. Follow-up appointments to check CD9 counts and viral loads will be every three to four months after that point.
One of our amazing powers as humans is the naming of things. Names convey more than just the literal meaning of the words we choose to use. They convey emotions, hierarchy, negativity, positivity, wantedness, unwantedness… Language is a powerful force, and making small changes to your language used when describing adoption can have a profound effect on the people who are most affected by adoption- birth parents, adoptees, and adoptive parents.
If you stop and think about what you’re saying, positive adoption language is just common sense. For example, consider the terms, “real parent” and “real family.” These terms imply that an adopted child is not a real part of their adoptive family.
In the past, adoption was largely treated as a secret that needed to be kept, and the language used to described the people and events involved in adoption was usually negative. In the last few decades, adoptions have become largely open and more honest. They are increasingly treated as a perfectly normal way to build a family, and adoptees are rarely in the dark about their origin story. Adoption has come a long, long way from the secretive ways of the past. The language the public uses to describe the people and events involved in adoption, however, still has some catching up to do. Many words and terms people commonly use are unintentionally hurtful, negative and imprecise and can serve to stigmatize and undervalue the experience and life story of birth parents, adoptees and their families.
6. Kung Fu Panda 7.
Po, a panda, is adopted by Mr. Ping, a goose. In the second movie, Mr. Ping shares Po's adoption story with him. Mr. Ping supports Po as Po pursues his own destiny, both a proud son of a goose and a proud panda.

Instead of this: Kept the baby
Say this: Chose to parent/decided to parent
Here 8767 s why: A human being is not an object that can be 8775 kept or 8775 given away. When parents decide not to place a baby for adoption, they 8767 re not 8775 keeping the child, they 8767 re choosing to parent him or her.
There is still no cure for HIV or AIDS, but there are medicines that can help slow down the virus. Children with HIV should be closely followed by a doctor.
A child that was placed for adoption is that family's child. They are their son, daughter, brother, sister, niece, nephew, granddaughter, grandson, cousin, etc. They are not an "adopted child" nor do you need to differentiate them from biological children by using terms such as "your own child."
Instead of this: Can 8767 t have children of their own
Say this: Are infertile / Cannot have biological children
Here 8767 s why: When someone adopts a child, that child becomes their 8775 own.
Now, you might be wondering why we are always so mindful of the words we choose, and the reason is that we want to ensure that we honor every person involved in the adoption process. Using language such as “real parent” takes away from the adoptive family and their critical role in the adoption triad. We don’t want to dismiss the fact that they are parents too. Saying that a birth parent will “give a baby away” is also a less positive way of saying that a birth parent has decided to “place a baby for adoption.” It is necessary to acknowledge that adoption is never an easy decision, so using such words as “give away” makes it appear that a birth parent didn’t struggle with their decision, because in reality they certainly did.
