Today has been one of those off days. What do I expect. This pregnacy has been pretty good so far, I guess I am going to have these days. I am just really tired and having some aches and pains.
I have to get something off my chest so here it goes. We had a comment to us about how could we be so selfish after having a special needs child to have more children. And they hope we dont live off their tax paying dollars. I am taking away from my other children and that is just selfish.
First of all I cant believe someone would actually state such harsh words. I am sooo sorry you feel that away. One of the main reasons we decided to think about having another child is because of my son with Down syndrome. I want to make sure if something happens to us (me or my husband) he will have plenty of help. Also I thought it would be great because he is mentally behind and he would try to keep up with another child and be more successful. Plus we just didnt feel like we were done.
The first thoughts that went thru my head when I found out, is how is this going to affect my kids. If I knew this was going to happen I would have thought twice but I didnt. God has a plan for my kids and I did not have a choice of how many babies I conceived. PLease dont think this has been easy or I am looking for fame. If I was going to try to be famous it wouldnt be because of this! I am just trying to make the best of the situation and pray that I am making the best decisions.
