Making the News: A Mother Adopts Her Ninth, an AIDS Orphan of Ethiopia and a US Citizen on the 4th of July

Margaret Fleming is the mother of twelve children, nine of whom were adopted. Her last five children were born HIV-positive.

“Margaret takes in hard case kids and makes diamonds out of them,” says Mary House, Director of Outreach in Children’s Hope Chicago branch. “She’s one of those people that steps out in faith, and when a reasonable person would say ‘It will not work’, they step forward and, you know what, does work.”

Margaret is the mother of two children adopted from Vietnam through Children’s Hope; her daughter Lanh, brought home in April 2006 is also HIV-positive. Watch ABC7's video as she brings home her ninth adopted child from Ethiopia on the 4th of July and find out what motivates this inspirational mom.
