For most of these children, no option is as good as living with healthy parents; where this is not possible (given the realities of the HIV/AIDS epidemic), family- and community-based sources of care are the most child-centered – and the only practical – means of responding to the scale of the problem.
In situations where legal adoption is either not available or is difficult and expensive to access, the notion of long-term fostering can be similar to a form of de facto adoption. It may, for example, involve a change in the child’s name (in practice rather than through any legal means) and an arrangement similar in all respects to legal adoption except that it is not formalized in law. From the point of view of agencies involved in facilitating the placement of children in long-term fostering, the key issues are probably less the child’s legal status and more the nature of the commitment.
Gillian Mann’s (2003) research in Malawi, documenting the views of children affected by HIV/AIDS, revealed a startling picture of what many children regarded as discrimination and abuse within the extended family. Moreover, these children reported that they had little opportunity to express their concerns. They also expressed clear and informed preferences about the most appropriate caregivers, opinions that often were at variance with those of the adults who made the decisions. While these findings are important, they do not override the central importance of care within the extended family and community.
