Hi, my name is Jo and I have 2 kids, Eoghan who is almost 6 and Rosie who is 3. We discovered while Rosie was in utero that she had a condition called congenital CMV. Due to this infection she was born with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and epilepsy. She is an extremely social, happy and clever little girl even though she as of yet she is non verbal and cannot walk, sit or roll.
I was so delighted to join the Áirc Midlands group as I am new to the midlands and I really wanted to meet people who understand what it's like to have a child with a disability and I wanted Rosie to meet other kids who are not neuro typical. Its also an opportunity for my son Eoghan to meet other kids who have siblings with special needs. I am happy for anyone to contact me for information on therapies, or if there's anything at all I can help with.
