Welcome to the GreatSchools community! Tell us about yourself to start building your profile.
I have 11 year old twin boys. They are what keeps me going every day even when I want to give up and think I can't do anymore. I am a single parent with a former husband that is a great father but not quite on the same page with my one son who has special needs. He can be a challenge just on his own but I also have to deal with the typical sibling rivalry. I have been fighting for my son with the school for almost 5 years. Last year I had no choice but to hire a special ed attorney to help my son get the accomodations he needs. After many, many thousands of dollars my son now has his IEP reinstated. Both my boys will be starting middle school this fall which will present a whole new set of challenges for all of us. I am excited, scared, happy, sad, filled with all kinds of emotions. Where did my little boys go? Where is my life going? I AM MY SON'S ADVOCATE!
