An Argentinian gay couple have adopted an HIV positive baby girl who had previously been rejected by 10 other families. The child, named Olivia, was born with the virus. Earlier attempts to adopt out the girl had not been successful, with prospective parents apparently being wary of the child’s HIV status. That all changed after married couple Damian Pighin and Ariel Vijarra agreed to adopt the girl when she was only 28 days old. They said that they knew the adoption was right when they instantly felt affection towards the child. “As soon as I saw her, I felt she was part of my life,” Vijarra told local media. “The connection was immediate. We held her in our arms, we gave her the bottle and she looked at us with her eyes wide open, without crying.”
