    I am a married stay at home Mom. I have 3 bio kids; 20, 17 and 13. I have an adopted son; 5, who has been diagnosed with a receptive and expressive language disorder, verbal apraxia and mental retardation. I have a 3 year old who we are legal guardians for, who has multiple medical issues and CP. I have another 3 year old who we are in the process of adopting, she has Down's. I also have one foster child, also with multiple medical issues. My life is very busy with my kids and I love it.

    Wow, I wrote that a long time ago! I thought I would update it. I'm still a stay at home mom. My kids are now 25, 22, 18, 10, 8, 8, and 7. The 3 oldest are bio and typical. The 4 youngest are all adopted and special needs. My 10 year old has a PDD-NOS diagnosis as well as Anxiety and ADHD. One 8 year old has CP and multiple medical issues. She's tried to die on us a couple times in the last few years but is doing better and chugging along. My other 8 year old has Down Syndrome and sever Sensory Processing Disorder. She presents like an Autistic child but they have not given her that diagnosis. Our newest addition is 7 and was adopted the beginning of this month although she has lived with us for 2 years as a foster child. She has Autism. She's fairly high functioning. That's my life!
