Message length 300 characters recommended

Jaina has a severe case of Downs. She is verbal. but people have a difficult time understanding her (and even we do at times). She is eleven and is just beginning to read. She has the mind of a 4-5 year old but, in some things, her mind is that of a 7-8 year old. Jaina may never be able to live on her own, and we are prepared for that.


.Some of the greatest people I have known have had mild retardation! There were many adults and teens I worked with that also had mild retardation and were such great people! I truly miss them and going out on outings! ... Children grow up and change but do not fret they will turn out to be OUTSTANDING adults regardless of their mental capacity!

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
