An online community for Jewish moms
I was recently talking with one of Caila's therapists. I was feeling frustrated over problems we are having with Caily. She asked me if it is possible that I have unresolved issues about having a special needs child.
When Gavin and I stood under the chuppah we did not pray or wish for a special needs child. During my pregnancy I, like all expecting mothers, implored G-d to give me a healthy baby. Yes we were shocked when Caily was born and we received the diagnoses of Down syndrome. In fact, the moment that the pediatrician said "Mrs. Samuels, did you do prenatal genetic testing?” often replays in my mind. That question that forever changed our reality.
