Raising a child with Cerebral Palsy

WELCOME! I set this group up to connect with parents that have children with Cerebral Palsy; however I welcome anyone that has a child with a disability...we can all learn from each other! My son Ethan will be 4 in April and was diagnosed with CP when he was 9mos. old, he has been through so much already but is such an amazing little boy. I would love to be able to learn from parents that have gone through some of same things and to hopefully help anyone that may be just getting adjusted. Our children are our life and all we want is to love and protect them!! :)
