Miguel cries out as nurses try to find a vein for a blood test.

Lorie, a nurse, adopted the two sons: Miguel, who was born with AIDS, came to live with her at 10 months of age, and Ma, a crack addict from birth, was just six weeks old when he joined the family. They live life one day at a time, and though Miguel's battle with AIDS is never quite forgotten, they have their daily routine like any other family.
