Parents of Special needs children

I thought I would start an offical group for us. Sometimes, we might need a shoulder, or just advice, but here will be one place we can come to in a time of need.

Hey, Stacey.  :) Super idea lady.  I hope you're doing well.  I've had a super-hectic, demanding sort of year, but hopefully, I can pop on here on and off during quiet spells.  I've missed you - keep up the great work, though.  You make a difference.  Hugs ~

I haven't lost a child and won't even pretend to understand what your family is going through, but I used to work with special needs kids and have lost more than I care to think about. I know some of the families had said hospice was a great help - maybe they could help? Your family is on my mind and in my prayers.

She has been in pain and has alot of anxiety. We are trying to keep it under control. Last night was bad. Very bad. I thought we were going to lose her. I can't even begin to express how heavy and sad my heart is. I just wish I knew some way to help her. I tried holding her today and it hurt her. So I put her in her bed and tried laying next to her but that just seemed to make it worse. Is there anyone here who has lost their child due to there disorder or illness. Kylie has a rare blood enzyme disorder called GM1 gangliosidosis stage 2. It is terminal but we thought and hoped we would have a little while longer with her.

Alicia- she loves to paint. It's one of the few things she was able to do. But she has become unable to do that anymore.

As for everyone else I truely appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Just knowing that people care that are total strangers makes a huge difference.

April I am so sorry that you and your family are having to go through this very diffucult situation. I am hoping that she is not in any pain and they are making her as confortable as they can. If there was anything I could say to make this any easier I would, but I know the loss of a child is the hardest thing you will ever go through. I am truly sorry.

April, you can count on my prayers for your daughter and your family. I am SO SORRY you are going through this. As a fellow mom this rips my heart out- I can no way pretend to know how you feel, but I feel deep sadness for you. Feel free to come to PolkMoms for support at anytime! My thoughts are with you. : (
