Debralynn asked:

I loved this. Haddon showed such insight about children with special needs. What is the toll these situation can take on marriage?

Kelleen In some cases, instead of the marriage being a relationship between the spouses, all the energy is expended on the child. Nothing is left for loving the other, and the relationship deteriorates. The spouse is stressed, but no longer has another to really turn to. Sometimes they can pick it back up and work on the relationship, other times it fails.
Daria Bocciarelli Kids are hard on marriage full stop.
