The story they told us………….
Here are 3 very pretty girls that will take a few months to settle with you but you’ll all be fine and we will support you every step of the way.
What they should have told us……………….
Here are 3 very pretty girls that all have special needs
Your eldest daughter will be diagnosed with ASD, she will be difficult to parent.
Your middle daughter has serious resentment towards her younger sister and really shouldnt share a room with her. She also has life long auditory processing issues and will need lots of support with this.
Your younger daughter has control issues and some behavioural difficulties that will possibly result in a diagnosis of ADD or something similar.
Life will be very hard, your daughters may never attach to you and we wont be supporting you. You will have to fight a constant battle to get the help you will need for your family. Your marriage will suffer, your friendships will suffer, your mental health will suffer and you will cry a lot.
