My name is Hailey, I am 43 years old, and my husband is Jim, 47. We have 5 kids, 1 is in Heaven. Aaden is 18 and Alec is 10, and both boys are neurotypical. My first daughter Alessia is 7, and she has asperger syndrome and anxiety. Next is Abigail, she is 3 years old and has down syndrome, low muscle tone and SPD. Aaron would have been 1 on the 24. Aaron was born at 27 weeks. He was born blue and not breathing, but the doctors were sure they could save him. He came home a month later, and he got severly sick at 4 months. He lived with severe meidcal issues until 9 months, when he went to be with Jesus.

    I am sorry to hear that you are dealing with so much. And losing a child is awful and never easy. I lost my big sister Dani when I was only 12. She was 18 and I was about 12 years old. I pray that you will have strength to get thru things and be the rock that your babies need. You deserve a huge hug for everything you do. I know I could not handle all of this like I am sure you are doing.
