Physical disabilities, learning disabilities, Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, OCD, and Developmental Trauma are parenting game changers.

Have faith in your abilities as parents to make the best decision for your child. Having differently abled should not be considered as a great tragedy; instead one should look at the many success stories.
