She was doing well in the initial days of her pregnancy but after a month suddenly at a routine checkup she found that she was suffering from HIV positive. Hearing this her in – laws and husband abandoned her. After all this she went to her mother’s house to stay but they also refused to accept her and to give her shelter.
