Hopes, Wishes and Dreams Hopes,Wishes and Dreams: A Book of Art and Writing by Children Living with HIV/AIDS in their Family
The Teresa Group (2005) - 20cm x 27cm; 40 pages
Price: $14.95

In Hopes, Wishes and Dreams, we are invited into the emotional world of children affected by HIV/AIDS. Through art, poetry and writings, their innermost thoughts and feeling are released and expressed. In the colours, lines, imagery and words, we see the trauma that many of the children experience, but we also see the hope and resiliency that they are able to maintain, despite the odds against them.
Hopes, Wishes and Dreams can be used by parents, health-care workers and educators to illuminate the emotional impact that HIV/AIDS has on the lives of children. It is a moving collection of work that honours the voices and spirit of all children affected by HIV/AIDS everywhere.

Bye-Bye Secrets Bye-Bye Secrets: A Book About Children Living With HIV or AIDS in their Family
The Teresa Group (2002) - 20cm x 27cm; 36 pages
Price: $14.95

What is it like when HIV or AIDS takes over a child's world? In Bye-Bye Secrets, five girls, ranging in age from 8 to 12 tell us about their experience - and about the secrets and stigmatization - that has made them wise beyond their years.
It is their hope that this book will be used in health-care facilities to educate and support families; and in classrooms to decrease the stigma and to sensitize children and educators to the impact of HIV and AIDS on families. They also hope that this book will help families living in areas where professional supports are limited.
Above all they want all children with HIV and AIDS in the family to know that they are not alone.

How Do I Tell My Kids? A Disclosure Booklet about HIV/AIDS in the Family How Do I Tell My Kids? A Disclosure Booklet about HIV/AIDS in the Family
The Teresa Group (1999) - 14cm x 21cm; 48 pages
Price: $7.00 (to cover the cost of reprinting and shipping)

Many adults believe HIV does not affect children. The truth is, children live in families where one or more family member may be living with HIV. If an adult is living with HIV, there is probably a child in his or her life who is affected by HIV/AIDS.
This booklet is for adults who are thinking about telling their children that a family member has HIV.
Phil, an HIV positive dad, states: "The ragged truth is better than a dressed up lie".
A child remembers: "I knew by the tone of her voice... She said it was positive. Time stood still for as long as I can imagine".
