Recently Bayo attended the funeral of a woman who died of AIDS complications. She and her husband have two sons, one has HIV and one doesn't. The husband has disowned the HIV+ son to the point of changing the boy's last name and refusing to care for him. This boy not even up to 10 years old.

The dad has HIV himself although he doesn't want people to know. The son has HIV because of his parents. How can his dad just send him away? I cannot justify this man's behavior in any way, but I just wonder if perhaps he feels too guilty and sad when he sees his son.

It moves my heart when people take their guilt out on their children, particularly when it's probably a subconscious motivation. Sure makes for an interesting prayer request!!
