30 Something Moms 30 Something Moms

I have three children, two of which have special needs. Just want to make new friends and talk about our children.

Posted by   + Show Post

hello,

 Like I said in the title, I have three children. Jordan is 11 and he has Down Syndrome and bi polar disorder. Dannie is 4 and she is starting kindergarten this coming school year, we are really excited about that. Julie is two and a half and has the metabolic condition known as PKU.

  I just want another mother to talk to. It kind of gets stressful having only the little ones to have conversation with most of the time. It will just be a welcome reprieve to be able to talk to another mom.

                                                sincerely, Jenn

Thank you so much. Everyone has been so nice in here. It is very comforting to be able to talk to other parents that know what I am going through. I live in a little country town with very limited resources so it really makes me feel very alone because there are not alot of people that know what it is like to raise a special needs child. OMG and do not even let me get started about the school grrrrrr.

 Hi Jenn!

I have 3 kids. My 8 year old struggles with an anxiety disorder.  My 7 year old has recently overcome a language processing disorder but now struggles with chronic pain and a functional GI disease.  There are a couple of special needs groups here; I would definately check them out.  It's been a big help for me.

Thank you everyone for so much support. Does anyone have a child or know of anyone that has the metabolic condition PKU ? I would really like to ahve someone to talk to that is familiar with this because I am having alot of issues with my two year old that has this condition. It would be so helpful to have someone to talk to to get ideas and suggestions from.
