Hello! We twin moms of one autistic-one not are hard to find. At least, I think so. My boys are 6 year old fraternal twins. Luke is high-functioning autistic-PDD and ADHD. It certainly makes parenting twins more challenging to have them so completely different. They are my 4th and 5th children. We were going for #4 and got an extra blessing!

My older children are 21, 20, and 14 years old. The 20 year old is fighting in Iraq right now, so that adds to the stress, too.

I have found my normal functioning twin, Scott, is very protective of Luke. Luke is verbal and that helps, but he has alot of issues with social aspects, education needs, speech problems, etc. It could be so much worse for us. BUT, that doesn't always make today's challenges any easier.

Write anytime. I don't know how often I'll be able to get on here. You have to know what I mean.  Smile  I'm going to try to get on each evening. So, I'll check back regularly to see if you want to talk.
