Theresa - I am so sorry you lost access to your step son. I hope one day you are able to reconnect with him. I can't believe that his birth mother did not care for him and that your ex would be so spiteful to keep him from someone he must love and miss dearly (((HUGS))) to you.

this is the last picture I got of him before his Dad took him. Yes I love him a lot, He was my son. I lost two sons that same year, my son I gave birth to his name was Shawn and Bobby few months later.

Theresa I am so sorry ypu lost your boys. I don't know if I could cope losing one of my children, you must be a very strong woman!

Bobby looks so happy in that photo and he is just gorgeous. A friend of mine has a 5 year old daughter with downs syndrome and she is just the most gorgeous & cheeky little thing alive


We had a check up with Jesse's Neurosurgeon on Thursday and she is not entirely happy with his head size as it is trending slightly upwards on the growth charts So we are off for another MRI as soon as a space opens up for him. I hate this because it means going under GA again and that is always a struggle as Jesse does not like waking in a strange place and becomes extremely hard to comfort afterwards. Here's hoping they will call me before he wakes this time and that the Dr's are happy with his scans.....

I just wanted to comment in this thread because I am currently in my senior year of college, majoring in both Special Education and Elementary Education. Over the last four years I have received tons of training on many different disabilities, including almost all of the ones that were named above. I am currently pre student-teaching in a public high school to receive more hands on experiences through their Special Education department. I really enjoy talking to other people, especially parents/guardians, that have had/are having experiences with children with special needs, because I think learning from you all can only help me become the best teacher I can be for my future students.

On another note... it really saddens me when I hear that some people cannot get the services in school for their children that they deserve. If you have a school aged child and are having problems seeking the services you want, please keep fighting for them. Just make sure you are making reasonable requests and also try your best to stay informed about what your school district must legally do for you and your child. Without seeking the information on your own, there may be a lot of things you aren't aware of.
Some school districts truly try to cheat the system, and it's so sad.

I'm not exactly sure how it works out of the states in places like Ireland or Australia, or where others of you are from, but as a soon to be teacher, I truly commend all of you for being such great parents/guardians/siblings, etc. for your children. They really deserve all that we can give to them!

Thanks for commenting Rachel, it's great to hear from someone interested in your field. As a special needs mum I can assure you that you will have a sometimes frustrating but totally rewarding life working in this field

If I were to give you any advice it would be this - look out for the parent/carer too and give them as much information and reassurance as possible. I am always thankful for Jesse's kinder teachers Grace & Cathy who often give me more information about our rights than our support team or case manager from "Scope" (this is a support group for families with pre school special needs kids). They also remind me to look after myself and take time out to do things for me which is something I often forget I need.

If you get a chance try and talk to anyone who does respite care for special needs kids too. I know my respite carer Karen is a wealth of information and ideas on activities etc for special needs kids.

Good luck with your schooling!
