Abstract: Most South Africans have experienced HIV and AIDS in one way or another – through knowing people living with the disease, through knowing people who have died, or through living with the disease oneself. Throughout these experiences there is seldom time to reflect on what HIV/AIDS means to our lives, or to come to terms with experiences of how the disease is lived from day to day. Living with HIV/AIDS is glossed over in statistics, in reports and in statements. Seldom do we hear, see, or understand AIDS in the words of those whom it touches most intimately. This book tells the stories of families living with HIV in words and photographs. What we learn is that in each devastating, painful and heartbreaking aspect of AIDS, there is also an equally heartfelt, caring, compassionate, courageous and life-giving aspect.
