I think I've probably introduced myself before, but things have changed in our case and I'd like to be a more permanent member on this board.

I'm Beth, mommy to 4 kids. My DD, Sarah Beth who is 5. She was born 3 months early and has very little issues. She does have a few breathing problems, but nothing major. My first DS, Bryan Luke was stillborn at 33 weeks in August 2007. Then my DH and I decided to become foster parents. Our sweet soon to be adopted foster son (who we called Lil Buddy online) came into our lives at 16months old in July 2008. He is 4 years old and my special needs kid. He is severely autistic and developmentally delayed. He just started walking in March of this year and does not really speak yet. He is not potty trained and showing no signs of potty training anytime soon. He does not eat with utensils at all. He sleeps fairly well if all his needs are met. He is super snuggly with me and smiling most of the time. I just adore him. I've always felt he would one day be my son and soon that will be true officially and legally!! We also have one more bio son who just turned one named Daniel. He was born at 35 weeks and is my completely typical kid.

Lil Buddy is on a special GFCF diet which has helped a LOT with his digestion issues. He is still tiny and doesn't eat well. He is 41inches tall and weighs 20lbs. When he came to us at 16 months old he only weighed 14lbs. He was typical in his length though, so he was SUPER neglected and skin and bones. We've come a long way, but eating has always been a big issue with us. When I switched him to the GFCF diet he started gaining weight more, but it is still a snail's pace.

I guess that is our major story. I look forward to getting to know you all better.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
