2. What was your experience being a first-time (Amazing) Mom to a child with special needs?
I had no gauge, so nothing to compare it to. Plus, I had been married to David for 5 years and we had just had a miscarriage a month after Esteban came to live with us. So I was completely open for loving a child, and it was totally healing for me to focus on his needs.
I must say, I focused so hard on Esteban that I forgot about my own needs of having my own child until he was 18 years old and no longer had programs or the focus of academics. He was pretty much independent when the idea of having a child even crossed my mind again.
