Working Mumma. Blogger. Passionate about raising awareness for special needs & disabilities
My little boy was born in 2016. He has numerous medical problems and complex conditions which have altered our parenting journey considerably.
I hope that by sharing our life experiences people going through similar ordeals may find comfort in knowing that they are not alone. Ultimately, my goal is to raise awareness of the daily struggles that families face with medically complex and special needs children.
Honestly, I say I wouldn't change Oliver for the world. It's something all parents say isn't it? Regardless of whether your child has additional needs or not. But I would change him. I'd change him in a heartbeat. Does that make me a bad mum? Does it make me selfish? Quite possibly. <em>Most definitely.
I spent so long getting excited about what life was going to be like with my new little sproglet. Oh the adventures we were going to have and memories we were going to make. But, it didn't go to plan and there's absolutely nothing I could do about it. I realised, that what I had spent months and months planning, was in fact, nothing but an attractive infatuation.

The only way I can describe having an unhealthy baby is soul destroying, heartbreaking and eye opening. When I say unhealthy I mean constantly unwell. There is a problem, or sometimes multiple problems or conditions that they may never be able to overcome.
