Thank you for visiting my community. I am the mother of two daughters. My 20 year old is Developmentally Delayed with PDD-NOS (Autism Spectrum) and ADHD. The special needs families go through so many emotions both good and bad. We often hide our accomplishments and stresses because no one else completely understands if you don't walk the walk. I often wonder why have I been given this great challenge and there are days that I don't know if I can be the complete advocate I need to be. This community was formed as a sounding board for others like me. Please feel free to pat yourself on the back and share your accomplishments (or your special needs person's accomplishments) and of course feel free to vent on those tough days.
