    Hello,

    I am 29 and a mother of 3 (2 stepdaughters ages 13 and 10, 1 bio daughter age 2 from a previous relationship). My husband is in the military (13 years Army). His late wife died in 2011. We all three went to high school together.

    Our middle child (AM) is 10 and suffers from PTSD stemming from things she saw while her mother was alive (C was an alcoholic), being moved frequently by her mother from their home to her grandmothers home while their father was deployed (5 times), and from her mother's sudden

    She also has a dissociative disorder and possible bipolar. She is not currently medicated, but is in behavioral therapy and EMDR.

    Hello! Not sure if I am in the right place or not but here it goes.

    I'm a 32 year old, engaged mother of 2 (soon to be 3) and am raising/parenting my 28 year old disabled sister. She was born with a condition called Cornelia de Lange Syndrome which is a genetic disorder present from birth, but not always diagnosed at birth. It causes a range of physical, cognitive and medical challenges and affects both genders equally. The occurrence of CdLS is estimated to be 1 in 10,000 live births. Which makes it rare enough that most doctors have never heard of it. Accompaning the CdLS she also has Epilepsy, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Rage Disorder. She is completely deaf and aslo had problems comunicating (even though she is fluent in sign).
