Dating someone special needs child

He's a fact of life and a part of my life and I wouldn't trade him, or his sister for the world. But I'm going to be dating a lot more soon (well, hopefully I am...) and I don't really know whether I should talk about my disabled kid or just talk about my kid and mention his disability at a later time.

Oh, please, don't for one minute think he's my dilemma, because he's not.

Once he's met him, the word won't be so scary."She's right.

Nobody could meet David and find him frightening in any way. After all, he's David first and foremost, and he just happens to have autism. Then again, is that fair to the guys I might eventually date? Plus, if he's gotten to know me well enough to be introduced to my kids, he'll probably know about my blogs or at least have friended me on Facebook by then.

) In my research, I saw first-hand many couples with unbelievable issues with their blended children and who also worked, ran their kids to various therapies and doctors, yet THEIR relationship was important enough to FIND ways to be together. Even if you don’t agree with something, you do not yell, you don’t leave and not return, you don’t stop calling for weeks or stop making contact. And you let the other person know that you will listen and they can talk with you about anything without fear and with an open mind and an open heart.
