Hello, My name is Ivy....

I have 2 boys ages 9- he'll be 0 next month and 7 1/2.... and I have a baby on the way, but don't know what we are having yet.....

My oldestson has PTSD, and bad anxity, we are working on finding out more..... he is currently in a treatment center..... he has delt with a lot in his life.... His father took him from me when he was 18 months, so he got speration anxity early on..... including having an abusive father who is currently on wife 4 due to his abusive behavior..... and they are about to have a baby..... and he is signing his rights over to his ex wife # 3 so her new husband can adopt him..... My son also has an IEP cause he's way behind in school..... he's been in treatment centers and therapudic foster care for the most part of the last 3 years.... he also has a bad anger problem.... we are currently fighting in court for him to get placed with me, and not his father so I can better care for him....

My younger son has son fidgety problems and is currently trying a trial period of meds for ADHD.... the teachers say they see a big change already in the last week f the upped dose..... He has had seperation problems due to his brother being ripped away so many times due to my ex husband.....

Currently I am on high risk with this pregnancy again... due to having a rare uterus and one overy.... but they also have me on high risk for down syndrome, the last tests came back abnormal.... I go in tomorrow for an amneo with a specialist.....

I am glad I found this group and hope to get to know all you lovely ladies :)

I posted this on my own post but I'll put it here also.
Hey I'm 22 from Australia. I have 2 year old twins and a 4 month old.
I hope you all don't mind but I don't actually have a special needs child myself. I have a brother who has fragile x. He's 18 but has the mind set of a young child. I have helped raise him since we were younger due to my mother being in and out of hospital and then after her death Christmas Day 3 years ago. I help dad with every aspect of he's life. He's come along way. But still has a long way to go. Any questions just as :)
I am here to how advice with my experiences and maybe even ask for some advice :)
