Born with HIV, Life at Age 29
(NEW YORK) -- When Lamont Valentin was a kid, no one had to tell him to keep his HIV status quiet. He just knew. "It was something that was a secret, that you couldn't' share," said Valentin. "Even if they didn't tell you, you could feel it." Valentin was born HIV positive in 1984, his mother died six years later and Valentin entered the foster care system. As Valentin grew up, the adults in his life warned him he probably would never live to adulthood.
