Hello everyone! This is me with my two children. Our son, now 8 years, was recently diagnosed with ADHD. His daily behaviour is of quite some impact on our daily life. Besides being 'busy' and distracted all day he has developed a sleeping problem as well. All night long he is walking around, disturbing his sister from sleeping.
Me, mom, is taking care of our family and challenges regarding Kevin.
Mom is indeed the pivot of the family. Mom is taking care of dad, who is suffering from serious complications of diabetes, an amputation of his leg, COPD and heart problems. Mom goes to the doctor with everyone, mom goes to the pharmacy, zoo, school .... and so on. Mom is not always sweet but ensures that every evening dinner is served at the family table. Mom washes, irons, cooks, and occasionally even has a rare moment to read a book. Mom recently had surgery for a lump in her breast whose outcome is not yet known. Mom has an appointment of the 21st of June at the Department of Immunology at the University Hospital in Pécs because she always has cold hands caused by Raynaud's syndrome. Mom is always there for dad, Ramona and Kevin. Mom is the only stable and strict factor in the life of Kevin. Now the Dutch authorities are wanting to take mom away from our family for a period of 8 months, for something that happened 12 years ago.
Over the last 12 years our lives have changed, my husband got ill, we adopted two beautiful children that are the joy of my live. If mom really is away for 8 months than there will be no family left. Dad can't take of his own hygiene and doesn't know when to take which medication, insulin and what so ever more. Dad can't drive Kevin to his so needed appointments at the psychiatrist and therapy in order to get his ADHD better controlled.
Without mom there is no family. The children will be placed in state children's facilities until the age of 18 and all there changes for a normal future are gone.
I will do everyting it takes to keep my family together and provide my children with a bright and happy future. A future that will give them the certainty that mom is there in the morning when they wake up and who comes to kiss them goodnight each and every night.
Please help me by letting my family stick together like it should!
