Motherhood is something that many women dream of, even from an early age. We dream of having children, what we will name them, and how we will raise them. What no one plans for is a special needs child; how would you even plan for one?
I do the usual things, such as putting up baby gates to block off sections of the house to keep my child safe, play with them and engage them in activities, and I care for them when they’re sick.
The only difference between our kids is that my child needs more attention and requires specialized knowledge about them and their condition.
