Marc29, 2008
My very first grandbaby will be 7 years old tomorrow. I don't know where the time has gone....he's a beautiful little boy named Jairus. Jairus was born with Pierre Robin Sequence ,....this caused him to have breathing and feeding difficulties. Today Jairus still doesn't speak very well, they used to call it non-verbal but he's learned a few words, some of them are hard to understand but he's a sweet little boy and we love him very much. Happy Birthday, Jairus!

This is my very first post.....I do it in fear and trepidation. The blogs I've been reading the last few weeks are very witty, chatty and entertaining....I fear that I am none of those things and my posts will be boring!
Well, here goes......As a mother of nine, I have a lot of parenting a foster mother for twenty years (now retired) I have a lot of experience with special needs kids,.....Seven of our nine children are adopted, so I have some experience with a nana of four gorgeous grandchildren and another one due in five weeks I have some experience with grandchildren but for all this vast experience,...sometimes I feel very it's all a facade and somebody, someday will discover the real, true me....someday my acting job will fail and my mask will fall off....
People say "you're amazing!"......will they still think that I'm amazing?
I think not......
