Maybe this isnt the right place for this? I'm just wondering if there are any families out there that are raising kids with special/extra needs. I have 4 kids, 2 are dx'd with autism (they are 16 yo twins). One twin has a heart defect and some learning disabilities, probably due to extreme prematurity. They were born weighing 1.8-2.5 lbs. The other twin has had lyme disease for a year. It's been really rough on him. My third son has debilitating anxiety. It's been a REALLY bad couple of years trying to help them through some rough times. Any other parents here face extra challenges with your precious ones?
