Hi All from a group newbie

Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I'm generally not a talker on group chats but decided it's time to make a change. I'm 46 and mum to 3 children aged 10, 9 and 7. (Boy, girl boy) . My youngest son was diagnosed with autism and tourette's. We live in Glasgow. I was so happy to stumble upon this group. Just feel it would be good to share my experiences and learn from those of others in a similar situation.  Look forward to getting to know lots of you lovely people.  Stay blessed! ♥️
