Im putting dd up for adoption, she was just diagnosed, i knew something was wrong with her. She has violent outbursts, claws at her face and pulls out her hair, punches, spits, throws anything she can get her hands on,attacks our dogs, and her siblings.
This is just the tip of the iiceberg and its too much for me to handle. I always thought it was a faze, she would grow out of it, spankings would help, time out would help. But nope. My worst fear has been realized and SO and i both agree we cant handle it. I have normal children, and my sanity to think about.
I dont know much about autism. My.mom thinks shes more likely to end up a criminal with her behavior, but according to her doctor, she'll more than likely need someone to care for her her entire life, so thats ridiculous. My MIL is livid. she thinks we should keep her but i just CAN NOT DO IT ANYMORE. we cant go out to eat, to the store, we can barely sit home without her screaming and groaning and hurting someone.

You know what you can and can't handle. You have other children to think about. Atleast you did something right, let someone adopt her before treating her like an animal or hurting her.

Probably best you do that way she will get the help she needs.  I'm sure it's a tough decision for you, but if you think it's the best thing for your daughter them I'm all for it.

I couldn't do it and I would probably do the same thing. At least they can be cared for and someone can give them the love they need.

Get ready for an ass chewing from the other moms

Oh shut the hell up.  This is a mama who is sinking, not one who deserves bitchy comments.

Perfect baby? It isnt about that AT ALL. I cant handle it. Someone else can.
