Maureen's Story

Maureen did not learn that her soon-to-be adoptive daughter, Libby, has hepatitis B until she went to China to pick her up. She and her husband made the decision to go through with the adoption. Libby and her adopted sister, also hepatitis B positive, have led happy, healthy lives. Maureen has always been open with the girls about risks of transmission, but now that her daughters are entering adolescence, Maureen struggles with how best to talk to them about what living with hepatitis B means for any intimate relationships they may form.
