Yes I’m a special needs mum, but in my case it’s by choice as we adopted our special girl in our family.
There’s a lot of truth in what you say, but we are and feel all different.
One sentence in your article struck me and I don’t think I agree with it. One can never say about another that our lives are a ‘bit’ harder than ‘normal’ mums. We don’t know what’s in the heart or life of another, there can be abuse, trauma, conflict, terminal illnesses, sickness, pain, depression, addiction, psychosis and the list goes on.
