Children affected by HIV/AIDS are at high risk for multiple placements as the adults in their lives are often too incapacitated to provide stable, consistent care for them. This article provides a historical overview of child caregiving, describes the complex needs of HIV/AIDS affected children and their relative caregivers, usually grandparents, and suggests that with necessary supports, placement with relatives can be a thoughtful, realistic option for permanency.
