“Soledad is a 38-year-old single woman, determined to become an adoptive mother. She tells the whole process to achieve it through the National System for the Integral Development of the Family (DIF). She attended the School for Parents, responded to the psychological examination and underwent a socioeconomic study. It was all worth it to get the adoption of Victor, a 7-year-old boy with HIV. She has been a mother for three years already, and shares the experience of having a special child who has memories of violence from his biological parents, but to whom she has given all the care, education, protection and love to help him build his self-esteem and likewise she has created her own happiness.
