Janet and Kurt's Story

Kurt and Janet had tried to adopt for 5 years when they received a placement of a baby whose mother was hepatitis B positive. Unsure of what that meant for them and the baby they hoped to adopt, they contacted the Hepatitis B Foundation. Through the Foundation, they learned how their daughter could be protected from the disease with a birth dose of the hepatitis B vaccine.
