It might help if you get to know our little family.
I am Lissa . I have two children, one with my ex-husband and one with my fiance. I am still friends with my ex-husband, which makes co-parenting our son a lot easier. The 5 of us make an interesting and unique family situation but it works for us.
Bryan is my fiance. He will be posting here too and sharing experiences from his point of view.
My son, Alex, is the oldest child and from my previous marriage. He started preschool at 3 1/2 with an IEP (Individual Education Plan) for speech and developmental delays. Shortly after he turned 4, he was diagnosed with ADHD.
Our daughter, Mary, is my second child and Bryan’s first child. Five months into the pregnancy, she was diagnosed with Down Syndrome.
Our four-legged family member is our dog Vixen. My ex-husband and I adopted her when she was just over 3 months old from a friend that rescued the litter of puppies. She is 7 years old now and Alex absolutely adores her, as she does him.
That is our special little family. Nice to meet you!
