One of my friends has an austistic son, he's 8 I think. My nephew has Asberger's and he's 15. so nobody in our age group.

our PT & OT keep trying to get us in touch with their other therapy kids. Now all the permissions have been given (bc they have to ask each family and get permission, then go to the other family and get permission . . . we see the PT& OT twice per month so this has been a work in progress . . . one mom is supposed to be calling me but she just had a baby so I don't expect anything anytime soon.

That's neat that your therapists are willing to hook you guys up! I've tried to be hooked up a few times through our deaf school, but it always falls through for one reason or another. One of them was actually the family of a radio personality I've listened to, and the wife got as far as visiting my blog and leaving me her email address, but they were moving and just getting their daughter's CI surgery at the time so it just never worked out. I'm really looking forward to when Danny starts attending the deaf school so I can actually meet some families!

I network a lot online though, which has kind of been my saving grace for not feeling so alone. One of the CMV moms I know and have talked to on the phone a few times was actually in town this weekend, so we got together and did lunch with our families. It was a lot of fun to see her kids that she's told me so much about, and just talk with someone who "gets it."

Just his EI class on Mondays. I really like being able to connect to the families there who are going through some of the same processes, and have the same questions I do etc. It makes me feel not as alone.

In our playgroup, there is a mother who has a son in preschool who has downs. They are such a busy family though, that they hardly ever go to any of the activities. Sometimes she'll come to the Mom's Night Out with us, where all the moms leave the kids with Daddy and we go out for drinks and appetizers etc. I enjoy that because she is very familiar with a lot of the doctors we go to and the therapists etc. So even though our situation is different, we can relate. We try not to talk about our kids during Mom's Night Out, but sometimes we can't help it. She's also my "buddy" for the group, so we often email eachother or call eachother for support or if one of us has info about a program etc

No not really. Luke is the only child in our county with Ds under the age of 3. I don;t know of any mothers in my area with a SN child.

well we used too lol. I had 2 friends that both had SN kids but they have outgrown them. Both are my older DDs friends though they are 4. One was Sensory baby with GI issues, she had a tube in the belly button, my brain is not functioning lol. The other was also sensory with OCD and the only thing she has now is speech delay. Didn't seem to stop the girls from playing though
