Another segment to my Dear...whoever....

Dear Negative Nelly,
I know that sometimes it's hard to keep your comments to yourself. But sometimes they hurt. I have recently heard of many of you so called "Negative Nelly's" making the comment that I shouldn't be having another baby because I have one with special needs. What the heck is that about people? Yes, I do have a child with special needs, and I wouldn't have her any other way. Yes, she has lots of doctor appointments and therapy sessions, and I wouldn't do anything different. Yes, having a child with special needs takes up a lot of time and sometimes it is frustrating. But I have so much love for my children that I can't imagine not having another one to love just as much! My kids bring so much happiness to my life that I just couldn't resist adding another one to the mix. So to all of you skeptics, we will be just fine adding another one. Thank you for your concern, but make sure when you make comments that they aren't going to hurt someone's feelings. Until you know what it's like to have a child with special needs, you don't know the joy that comes with it.


  1. You go girl!!! People can be so rude! xoxoxo I am very excited for you!! :D ♥ ♥

  2. Oh. My heart. I can't believe someone would say that. I'm glad you are having number 3- it gives me hope that I could have another one some day.

  3. A - blankety -MEN!
    Well said!

  4. Terra I'm so sorry. I cant believe the nerve that some people have. You are such a good little mom to your girls, they are insane to say such a thing. Who cares if you have 10 kids. What point are they trying to get across? Grrr, people emake me angry! Easier said that done but just let it roll off :-) Your awesome.
