| | new mom of baby girl with DS
I'm a new mom, again. My baby girl of 1 1/2 mos. has DS. I also have two boys, ages 3yr and 1 1/2yr. I've been a stay at home mom now for almost a year. I'm looking for support, encouragement, words or wisdom from people who've been there - people who care. Ironically, I worked in the area of special needs for years, coming in contact with people with DS on a daily basis. My friend of 20+ years has a brother with DS. I'm no stranger to DS, but I continue to ride an 'emotional roller coaster' on a daily basis. Overall, I think I'm doing okay (sometimes, I don't think so). Fortunately, everytime I make a contact (i.e. area mothers' support group has been helpful, early intervention intake staff is encouraging), I feel a bit better. So, anyway you can offer support will be appreciated.
