Dear Debbygloser,
Your story is incredible. So many twists and turns to get to God's happy result. Yes, Glory be to God. You have had a difficult road in just ordinary living and going about your days. We never know what is coming our way. It really makes me wonder if life is nothing but chances, even when you make thought out decisions. Thank you so much for sharing and please continue to do so. Please feel welcome to World Pulse. It is a safe place for you to express yourself. I hope I will be reading more of your stories soon.
Take care...JoMarie

Dear Debbygloser,
Welcome to World Pulse.
I'm sorry to hear of all the misfortunes you have encountered, together with your late wife and how life forced her into a corner until she eventually passed away. I'm glad to hear that God has given you another chance at having a family and spared your children HIV infection.
May you continue to heal, both physically and spiritually. I am glad that you can share your story here, and with it spell the reality that a HIV diagnosis is not a death sentence and push against the stigma and fear that surrounds HIV/AIDs especially in Africa due to ignorance and superstitions. Good on you, and Love to your family and God keep you and shelter you through this year.

Hello, Debbygloser,

Welcome to World Pulse! I'm glad that a new voice from Nigeria is rising!

Thank you for your bravery to share your story. I commend you for forgiving your late wife and for restoring your marriage. You are a good man. I hope this new partner of yours will stay by your side just as you stayed with your wife at her last breath. Please keep on sharing your stories, especially on raising awareness of HIV/AIDS.

Happy New Year!
