Purpose: The purpose of the study was to describe the processes by which mothers living with HIV disease experience and manage mothering. Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: Grounded theory principles were used to guide participant selection, data collection, and analysis and development of a substantive theory on managing mothering with HIV disease. Method/Subjects: A semi-structured guide was used to facilitate discussion from a convenience sample of 15 mothers in the Midwest living with HIV disease. The interviews were audiotaped, transcribed verbatim and coded. Constant comparison method, open axial, and selective coding techniques were used to analyze the data. Results: The core category was the process of living for my children. Living for my children was a five-stage process of knowing my diagnosis, living with HIV, taking care of myself, seeking support, and being there for my child. A major aspect of taking care of myself was spirituality, specifically, leaning on God. Conclusions: Leaning on God was an important strategy in managing mothering and self care. Health care providers can enhance this strategy by being aware of their own values and beliefs, integrating spiritual practices in nursing care and offering to support mothers living with HIV disease without any biases or prejudice.
