my name is shannon and my garrett is 10yrs old..he has aspergers, adhd, bipolar, odd, and panic disorder...i am a single mother of 3 other nerotypical kids also, all younger that garrett. right now he is very stable, and doing well, lets get together and help each other out...there are many challeges that we face every day...we can laugh, hope, and cry together on all that...we need each other...my whole purpose for setting up this group, even though there alot of them out there on cafemom, is because i was feeling very alone even being memebers of those other groups....i got blasted for my opnions a few times for what i said... all i was looking for was a friend....I wanted to create a more personal group a more personal way of getting to know each other and our child/ childrens needs. together i know we can help each other...i don't know all the answers and i'm sure there are moms out there that can really help me as well...so if you want a fun place to vent, cry, hope, and feel a part...this is the group for u.... no subject is thrown out....but please no personal attacks of any kind and i would really be dispondent if that happened...if u disagree with a post or responce feel free to state you opnion as well, but lets be adults and speak with love...all of us are hurting and we all show it in different ways..some times the most hurt person also seems the most angry...the Bible says a soft answer turns away wrath...so lets try that instead of bashing each other when we don't agree on a topic...please practise tolerance..the only post i will delete is if someone attacks anothers mothering skills...that hurts to the core and none of us need that right now....COOL?
make sure to only introduce urself in this post...please post your family story by adding ur our post so people will see it and reply to u in ur post....thanks shannon/admin
