Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.
Twins and Childhood Disabilities
Twins bring many unique and wonderful experiences to their families as well as greater responsibilities for care as newborns and in early childhood. Some face greater challenges due to prematurity, traumatic birth, or other multiple births; and one or both twins may have Down syndrome or other developmental challenges.
I am wishing you the kind of Mothers Day that would bring you the greatest joy ~ and recognizing you for being a wonderful mom week by week.
