My oldest son who is 18 now was diagnosed with moderate mental retardation at a young age. I have been handling his needs and wants his entire life. Also any extra needs such as school, etc. He is the reason for my passion. It has been a challenging life for him and will continue to be in his adult life. I've learned for all these years how to take care of him. I have a lot of patience for people of any age with special needs.
