Thinking of you DeeDee. Wishing you the best.

My kids were 2 and 5 when my husband passed. One of them has autism too. I too wondered how I was going to do it all. Somehow 3-1/2 years later we have managed to survive. I'm not sure how we did it other than taking one step at a time.

Utilize your resources. It sounds like you have family who want to help. Let them help you.

May your little one bring you joy and peace.

My life is better because you were in it. You encouraged me to stretch my wings. I will forever be grateful. Rest in Peace Babe. Till we meet again.

Thank you all so much for your replies.  I can?t tell you how much this board has helped me over the past nine weeks since my husband died. I had a beautiful baby girl last Monday.  We are both home and getting settled along with my three-year-old son.  It wasn?t easy, and I am exhausted, but it actually wasn?t as difficult as I imagined it would be.  It definitely helps that I have a grief counselor who is a saint that visited me at the hospital and has visited me at home since the baby was born. There are moments when I think, ?I?ve got this, I can do this? and moments when I think just the opposite.  I?m holding on to the former and taking this day by day, hour by hour and sometimes minute by minute.

I'm so happy to hear your baby arrived safely, deedee. It is great that your grief counselor has been so supportive. I think you are approaching it in the best way - one day or moment at a time. I hope your new baby girl brings much joy to you and your son.

Hugs all around...
Without you, Baby, I'm not me.

Congrats mama on your baby girl.  If/ when you are sleep deprived and feeling alone like I was many, many times, remember that there are a whole bunch of us pulling for you!  And probably many of us sleep deprived and awake at the same ridiculous hour with our littles, in solidarity!

I had a beautiful baby girl last Monday.





A wee bit of heaven
Drifted down from above -
A handful of happiness,
A heart full of love.
The mystery of life,
So sacred and sweet -
The giver of joy
So deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,
So lovable, too -
The world's sweetest miracle,
Baby, is You!

~~ Helen Steiner Rice

May the universe rain Blessings on You and your little Girl!!

I was just wondering how you were doing.  So glad you posted.  Congratulations on the baby daughter!      Try to get as much rest as possible and let others help as much as you can.  I'll be praying for you and your family.
