My young adult daughter got JRA when she was 12. Do you see a pediatric rheumatologist? We have an excellent one now that really tries to help. We have also gone to a few conferences and met other families - wonderful experiences! I'd also check out the resources at the Juvenile Arthritis Alliance http://www.arthritis.org/ja-resources.php and join this support group http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/jra-list/ You'll meet tons of other helpful moms in the group!
