my names is keri,im 22 will be 23 on the 25th.i am a single mother. I have a 3yr old daughter she will be 4 on the 13th. im so excited. Her name is alexis nicole.she is my only child. alexis was born with septo-optic dysplasia. she started having seizures 12 hours after birth,she's a trooper. she is legally blind and has hypertension on the left side of her body, she walks with a limp and it is difficult for her to run and climb and jump,but with alexis nothing is impossible. she is the light of my life and everything i live for. but here lately ive been feeling overwhelmed by all the needs she has,getting her into a special pre-school,having to work all the time. and getting the feeling that im not doing all that i can,when deep down i know i am.she is so smart and wonderul.i am so proud to call her my child. but the feeling of the weight of the world on my shoulders sometimes jusmat wants to make me cry. im turning here because hopefully i can get some support,her father is not around and i dont want to feel alone anymore.
