How did you decide to have another child after knowing you had a Special Needs child?
I am new to this group and thought it would be a great place to post a question that I have been thinking about. I have 2 little boys, one 7 and the other 4. My oldest son has Autism, and my youngest is typically developing. I got pregnant with my youngest without realizing my situation with my oldest. Even with all the challenges, I love both of them unconditionally, and can't imagine my life without them. I always wanted 3 babies, but the thought of having a 2nd Special Needs child scared me a bit. I was wondering how other parents decided on having another child after knowing one of their children had a disability. Are you happy with the decision (either way)? I am curious to hear what others have to say, as I am increasingly feeling I would like to have another baby, but at times feel torned about the decision.
