    Default How many of us are there???

    Ok, just got me thinking, how many of us bubhubbers have children with special needs?

    *puts hand up!*

    My DD1, Emily, has Down syndrome.

    So... who are you and what is your child's disability/ special needs?

    I'm kind of 1/2 putting my hand up! As most of you know Maia (dd2) has the label "Undiagnosed Condition" or "Suspected Syndrome"



    Lunar - Emily has a beautiful name

    My Ds1 has ADHD, ODD (oppositional defiant disorder) and suspected SID (Sensory Intergration dysfunction). One Dr also believes he may possibly have Aspergers

    Our children may have different levels of disabilities, whether it be a crippling disease or a minor ailment, but they are all children with Special Needs . So yes, you fit in here
    When dd2 was younger I wouldn't have wanted to be in here (no offence!!) but I've come to accept and realise that we do belong here, I do have a special daughter, but it's not necessarily a bad thing. While all kids are special, I just have an extra special one! And the help and support I've received from the other BHer's has guided and uplifted me throughout my BH life.
