Hello,

My name is Melissa and I am new to cafeMom (and have never joined an online group or made a post of anykind before - so I am very new to this).  I have a wonderful 2 1/2 year old son with special needs and a great stepson who just turned 8.  I work full time and have very few supports in the parenting area as my family lives out of state.  I look forward to hearing other Mom stories and StepMom stories.  I am also hopeing this becomes a comfortable place to talk about some of the more challanging situations I find myself in.

Hi Melissa! Welcome! I have a 6-yr-old son. There are good conversations here with lots of ideas and sharing. My family all lives out of state, as well.

My 2 1/2 year old son has significant language impairment. He has been getting speech, OT, and early intervention services for a year now. We are seeing some progress in receptive language but his working vocab is still 5-10 words. He is getting an eval for autism but I think it is mainly a speech/language delay with some processing deficits.

I have not lived near family since I left for college. It wasn't until I had my son 2 1/2 years ago that I realized how much I was missing.

 It would be nice to have the kind of family I would miss. I don't mean to sound negative, but my family was never close or supportive of each other. That's part of the reason I moved away. It was a small town, and jobs were scarce.

Another good place to meet other moms would be at the library. I don't know what hours you work, but they have reading circles for toddlers most mornings, and there is usually a play area in the corner somewhere.

Another good place is at the local playgrounds or parks. It sounds like you are married because you said you had stepchildren, but single people can meet other parents and children in Parents Without Partners groups.

Keep looking...    Good luck!   :-)
