I have a 2.5 yr old little boy (who is the light of my life), he was born at 25 weeks gestation and spent 3 months in the hospital. His prematurity ultimately cause him to have some brain bleeds which lead to his mild cerebral palsy. He has not started walking yet, but with physical therapy we hope he is able to achieve that goal someday. He is also a bright and very observant little boy. He has been able to learn his abc's, colors, numbers, and shapes.
I am about 2 weeks away from delivering my 2nd child (another little boy). I opted to not have any of the chromosomal test done because I felt a false positive would stress me out even more. SO....now that I am hitting 37 weeks, I am trying to wrap my head around being able to contribute time and energy to my son with special needs as well as my new born.
Is there any parents out there with an older child with special needs and who have decided to have another child. Please share your stories.
