I am a 49 year old mom of 5 adult children and adopting a five year old boy (we have had him since he was 4 months), we also recently added our 2 1/2 year grandson to our household to raise. They are both special needs, the 5 year old has ADHD and our grandson may be Autistic (we are in the beginning of the process to get him assessed). I work full time plus and my husband ( age 52) now works part time to help with the kids at home. Some days seem just so long but still there doesnt seem to be enough hours in the day to get it all done and have regular one on one time with each boy. It's hard to share with my friends, as their children are grown and hard to socialize with woman with children of the same age a sour youngsters because they are so young (in their 20's, I have chidlren that age). When people hear about how we got our five year old and our grandson they think we are sooo amazing. I want to be amazing for them, but I dont always feel that I am amazing.
