I have 2 fantastic daughters aged 9 and 7. My eldest has special needs currently diagnosed with mental retardation in order to receive services. I am 37 this year and my husband and I have been on the fence about having a third child for a coupe of years. My 9 year old stil requires so much of my time, although she excels in some areas I would say that she functions at the level of a 3 year old; she's still in diapers and needs help feeding, washing etc). I feel a third would sometimes take me over the edge yet also here is a part of me that would love another. Yes, I am scared. Does anyone have the same kind of story and took that giant leap of faith? I would love to know how it went for you, the ups and the downs. I worry about my 7 year old as she is so independent and I feel would feel neglected as I would be so busy with the other 2. Thanks for you time

I have a sister with spina bifida, she is the youngest of the three of us sisters. She constantly tells my parents she wishes she was not the last, because she feels that they gave up. Go for it. Good Luck
