We’re Expecting………… SNOW this week! Hooray!
In all seriousness…….. we conceived the twins through IVF. They are our only children and they both have special needs. So of course, the question is…. will we have more children. Would we like to experience parenting a neurotypical child? For the next 3 years or so, the answer is DEFINITELY no. We don’t have health insurance. We’re completely overwhelmed. We’ve hit a rough spot because I just don’t have the time to work enough hours to pull us up from the financial rough spot. In 3 years I’ll be 42 years old and that will be my last chance in my opinion. I’m not giving up on the frozen embryos just yet just in case a transfer is in our future. But it’s at least three years away.
I just wanted to note this post from my blogging friend.… it’s beautifully written and the undercurrent in everyone’s thoughts as our special needs children get older, even when they don’t say a word is ……”is she done? why? why not?”
What about you? IF you choose to share….. if you’re a special needs mommy, are you planning for more children? Why? Why not? It’s an invasive question—- ignore it unless you WANT to share.
