Nothing in life, I'm told
by those who know, is as hard as losing a child. And every caregiver at
Connor's who loves a child with AIDS is setting out, consciously, to endure
that pain. The illness isn't a surprising discovery made against their
own will, like that heard by parents whose children go from robust health
to leukemia fevers. Caregivers here know, from the moment they lift the
first child to their breast, where the road will lead. And,
one after another, time after time, they choose to love.
