    Sorry addiesue, subjects concerning the 29 year old are mostly "family only." Most large families have their unfortunate secrets; our's is no exception.

    ...Oh wait! Are you trolling for a guy here? I have seen pictures of you, and I hardly think THAT'S necessary.

    Only joking.... Thanks for the compliment though.

    My hat is off to all of you raising kids w/ your injuries-that's super!. No kids here, we'll probably adopt one day.

    So, I started taking care of (two hours 2x /week-basically being a taxi to) an 8 and 11 year old. I'm having a lot of anxiety. For you other quads-don't you fear being in difficult prediciments like w/ choking and such?
    I know you do what you need to, but this injury makes me me feel so nervous w/ children now. Just wondering.

    I'm not a quad but I know what you are saying. It wsa horrifying to me when my son fell one time. I thought he was really hurt and it took me so freaking long to push throught the gravel and then weeds to where he was. I was cussing I couldn't get out and run. He was fine by the way. I don't know a solution besides always keep the phone close just in case. That way you don't waste time going to get it in a true emergency.

    That would be bad. Hopefully there would be people around to help if something like that were to happen.

    I remember watching our daughter fall off the couch onto her head when she was 2 that immediately formed a goose egg. I felt like the worst parent ever. I wasn't alone in the house with her, but not being able to snap to action and physically take control of the situation does suck. I just do what I can to handle situations verbally.

    Now that she's almost 4 I feel fine being alone with her, but I'm constantly watching to see what she's doing. I definitely wouldn't pass up the chance to be a parent because of SCI. Not to mention the help they can be to you.

    Worst parent ever? How about losing your kid in a crowd of 10,000 people? Security found him and passed him off to the cops before I was able to report him missing. They had just called his step father when I showed up. The cop car comes pulling up with Cole in the back, I said, 'Hey Cole, I hope you liked being in the back of a cop car, because you sure ain't gonna like it so much in ten years!'

    Holy Crap, that sounds scary. I'm glad it had a happy ending.

    c-6-7, 6 1/2 years post. dad to 17 year old son.

    i just got him full time as of feb. this year cause his mom was killed in a car accident. he's pretty self sufficient being 17 but GOD it's mind-racking trying to keep up with a teens wants and needs.

    i applaud his mom for being able to do what she did the 8 yrs we were divorced. she never remarried but went thru a series of bad relationships and was also raising an autistic 3 yr. old with no father in his life at all.
