I am very sorry about your ds, it is very difficult when your child has medical issues and your child's are very serious.

"Being a good parent and having kids grow up to be confident, self-reliant and feeling loved has nothing to do with whether you SAH or not."

This--I agreed with your whole post, but this summed it up.

You didn't say that , but the poster to whom I responded certainly said it--as if the only possible reason a family might have two working adults is because we put money ahead of our kids. Or that we can't possibly understand the importance of our children because she just assumes none of us have ever had a child with major medical problems. Those are huge assumptions to make, and really unfair ones. No one in this thread has been the least critical nor dismissive of your life choice. And yet, she found it necessary to drop that load here, in a group she clearly knows nothing about, posting as if she's got all this experience that we shold value and respect, yet her entire post is disrespectful of any choice that doesn't match hers.

I don't see any reason to pretend her presumptive and offensive post was anything other than presumptive and offensive.

Yes ditto.
