Colorado Springs, Colo.; Diagnosed in 2001; Three children, ages 2, 1 and 7 months

My biggest challenge for my children, because they are so young, is getting them to listen. My children being 2, 1 and 7 months is a challenge in itself. The children are always getting into everything and causing each other physical harm. Now while that is currently my biggest challenge, my children bring me joy. The greatest joy I have found is in their laughs, smiles, and just having them. My children are quite a blessing to me. I remember finding out I was with child, and I told God "Thank you, for sending me one of your precious angels to care for." Children are a gift and to be blessed with three gifts is truly a joy! I love being a mother!
