I was raised catholic. Never felt comfortable with it. When i had willy he was born healthy, and than when he stopped breathing, i did blame God for a while. I was actually more angry with the world and people in it to be totally honest. Along with myself. We went to a special needs thing we have here and it was in a baptist church and i felt calmer than when i had first entered the church. We now attend a baptist church and they accepted willy and help him make goals and let him do things in the church with the other kids. Willy had i were baptized 3 years ago this past june.
Quoting LivinDeadGurl:I am Pagan. I don't think having a special needs child really changed my beliefs any.

Love seeing the variety on here! I'm in seeker mode, but definitely on the spiritual journey. I don't think having my son affected it; I was already questioning my beliefs and have never felt like a deity "gave" me my son on purpose.
I'm a Christian...my faith has gotten me through the past 4+ years of finding out that I would have a SN child to where we are today. God has made Brady exactly the way He wants him to be and we find him to be perfect. I've never once been mad at God for the way He made Brady. My husband and I feel honored that God chose US to be Brady's parents and to love and care for him.
