If you are married, How many years did you wait- if any - to have children after getting married?

Are there any things you miss doing before kids?  If so, what?

Is your life now what you expected it would be 10 or 20 years ago? 

At what point do you self actualize?  Do you believe in it?

What's on your agenda this week?

"Then we agree, There are people at peace with ill children! The communities speak for themselves and I'm privleged to know a lot of the families that are there." -------------- No, that is not at all what I said. Either you are incapable of understanding or else you are refusing to understand.

Is that why you continue to judge and attack my personal decisions about private/public school, because you fail to understand?  You bring it up in almost every thread, despite the irrelevance most of the time and then refuse to debate the issues you say you want to debate.

"I think some, including her find more fun playing sides than fair and intelligent debate." Dear Lord woman.... I can't believe that you had the never to post that, lol.

I don't know all the thousands of families that blog on caring bridge, No. I've also said there is no hard evidence to prove what real life families are going through outside what we do ourselves and who we know. If your image is that most are "utterly distraught" I don't agree.

Then I don't think you are looking carefully, you only are seeing what you want to see.

I hate that whole "God never gives you more than you can handle" crap.  It's not just untrue, it's vicious, mean and callous.  God OFTEN gives us more than we can handle.  And when He does, that's the cue for any real believer of God to step up and take on some of that load themselves.  That's WHY we're here; to carry the load for our fellow humans when they are heavy laden.

James 2: 15-16: "15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?"

No, they are not sources of peace and tranquility, they are sources of support...requests for prayers, updates and trying to understand the why of many things.  They are far from peace and tranquility.

Not a physical need perhaps ;) but close enough.

Yep, Jamblessed.  You are correct.  Bord, the great educator, earlier concluded autistic children are in a state of nirvana:</p>

She said nothing of the kind--she said she knew ONE autistic child who's untreated and unaddressed state of autism resulted in such a state, but that the child's mother wanted better for her.  And the proof of that is in the very quote you cited.  Why you would propagate such a vicious lie that is so easily disproven and shows your reading comprehension to be so subpar is a mystery.

<<Save the implication that I don't know a thing about the tasks, the roles and duites families with ill or special needs face.  The fact of the matter is their days are eased by support groups and relationships with other families that understand what they're going through, That is what I'm defending here.  You've made some pretty nasty claims, The reality is I don't think you know a whole lot, Count your blessings. >>

If you truly believe that....I don't know what to say Jams.   You are clearly not seeing reality on this subject.
