Having twins with special needs makes for a busy, sometimes crazy household. Our son Caleb has cerebral palsy and cognitive delays, but is pretty independent. Our daughter Natalie has severe cerebral palsy, epilepsy, feeding tube, and is diapered. Natalie and Caleb both require large amounts of extra care and constant supervision, plus the appointments for therapy, doctors, etc. are endless! It is extremely difficult to find caregivers who can physically manage Natalie (65 Lbs) and are not afraid of her feeding tube and seizures. As parents we rarely get time alone together and we are very isolated.
Their needs leave very little opportunity for Mom and Dad to spend time together. Respite is so important for keeping us connected so we can recharge. We need to do that once in a while so we can keep giving our best to our family!
