She was married, in college and pregnant with the first of what she hoped would be a large brood of children. She and her husband ordered a crib, decided on baby names and started planning Little League baseball for their unborn child. Then doctors discovered that she has AIDS--a result, they determined, of a relationship with an intravenous drug user seven years before.
