Hello, I am so happy I found a place were there are other parents living with children with LD's. My husband and I have a 13 year old daughter who loves Patrick Dempsey and Hannah Montana but she cannot do simply math by herself or get the shampoo out of her hair alone.
She is in a special needs school that is very good but I would like it if they would help her more with her speech. I do worry about her future, and when she is around mainstream kids I can see how different she is and I get angry "why my child"
My husband and I were told we couldn't have children but after 13 years we had my daughter. She is our life, I just wish life would be easier for her.
I hate when my husbands family looks at us with those pity eyes. I am raising my child to be an independent women as best as can. I expose her to the arts which both her father and I work in.
Thank you, Janet
