Hey Lauren what a great idea to create this thread. I am such a creature of habit, I just realize you started it!
Hi everyone!I have posted on 30something for a while I just realize this thread was here!
My son is now 7 yrs. Old. Hubby and I adopted him when he was 5 weeks old, he was a great baby, no problems, he was a drug baby meth was the drug of choice for our birthmother, he started showing troublesome sings at about 18 months old. Right before he was 2 he was diagnosed ADHD, lots of troubles, I didnít believe it was just ADHD there was something else. Between 4 and 5 yrs old he was diagnosed bipolar, it has not been easy. Lots and lots of behavioral problems both at home, at school, with neighbors all around us, it has not been an easy thing. Doctors and school are suggesting and recommending residential treatment, he can be very aggressive and out of control. We are not sure we want to put him in residential treatment he is much to young. We are working around the clock to find the right help for him and keep him at home.
it sounds to me like you raised a pretty good boy!
And very tall! Sorry you only get to see him 1/7 of the time
! Your kids are adorable!
your daughter looks like a doll, she is very pretty! I can imagine how easy it would be to spoiled her!
Sounds to me like you are a great mommy!
you are a strong woman! I know what its like to have a bipolar child and ainít easy.
I admire teachers, I have no idea where do they find the energy and paciance. You have very smart kids, most have very good genes!
Wow you have your hands full, I never heard of precocious puberty, must be very difficult to deal with, how do explain that to a little girl her age????
I wish I had my child (adopted) when I was younger, I probably would had more energy than I do now.
My hat goes off to single parents, I have no idea how you guys manage, it is hard raising kids this days with a 2 parent home, let alone a single parent.
your kids are sooo cute! You should be so proud of them! They are very smart!!! I am so sorry about the situation with this girl, I think she shouldíve been punished, I canít understand the school the teachers, the principals, it is ridiculous. The pictures are beautiful! Thanks for sharing
he is a cuttie!

you have your hands full! Your story with the markers made me laugh and remember things Sean did when he was younger, at the time they are happening they donít look funny at all, but later we do laugh! It is great you are homeschooling, I agree there is too much crap going on in our public schools. I hear the stories about the school even teaching kids sex ed including how to have oral sex.
, I like Laurenís idea for dating, if you eve allow it, I think she is too young. She is a beautiful girl. NO DATING!!!
your kids are very cute, my youngest sister now 34 (in Mexico City) is down syndrome, they are the sweetest people!
in response to the dating thing I am right there with you gal, my son is only 7 who know what is in store for us!!! LOL, donít want to even think about it.
Wow your step daughter is very smart, that is great! Sorry you canít be there when she gets home from school. The pictures of your daughters walking is too cute!!! And the picture of your step daughter is just great!
Children with down syndrome are very special. My youngest sister is downs.
Thanks for sharing.
I agree with you 100% do agree with you on saying that it all comes down to the individual child. Parents provide direction but there are no guarantees, thatís right there are none!
I am so happy for you and the new school, I hope your kids just blossom! It sounds like there is no way they couldnít
