I am a 30-something wife, mother and Christian living in Scotland.
I am raising twins, both of whom have special needs. My son has classic autism, severe learning difficulties, global developmental delay, pica and neurofibromatosis type 1. He is non-verbal. His twin sister has selective mutism, gross motor delay and will be assessed for autism later this year.
I have a strong faith. It took 10 years to have the children and they were born as a result of IVF after a very long journey of infertility. I have been married almost 15 years and the children are aged 4.
The children currently attend nursery but will be starting school in August 2013. They are a huge blessing to me.
I am currently a full time carer for my son but have done many jobs over the years and trained as a teacher many years ago. Life is now full of nappy changes, hospital appointments, meetings and reports but I believe I still have a voice and can use it to encourage, make you smile and share with you the story of my family. I hope you enjoy reading my blogs.
Love and blessings,
