Good Morning
I've just come across this community and wish I had found you sooner!
I'm a mum of 4. 3 boys and 1 girl. My oldest boy is 12 and has ADHD, Genetic disorder & moderate learning difficulties. My Middle boy is 6 and at age 3 was diagnosed with Epilepsy & a large brain Tumour. He has since had a partial resection to debulk the tumour but full removal is not possible.  Since surgery he has been diagnosed with Autism, learning difficulties, His eyes both wonder and has face has dropped on one side due to damage. But we don't dwell on the situation, there is no point crying over something you can not change, so we smile and make the most of very day. Laughter and jokes make life a lot easier :sweat_smile:
Sorry to ramble on, xxx

    There's no need to apologise @GBrooks thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself and your lovely family :) I'm pleased to hear you're so glad to join the community. 

    Do ask if there's anything we can lend a hand with, and feel free to explore as and when. Do you have much planned this weekend?
