I have worked with all kinds of kids with disabilities. Actually our babies who are deaf had the hardest time bonding...isn't that strange? We encourage tons and tons of nursing so they get the sensory input. The little guys who are blind tend to cling, so they bond quickly. The parents have a harder time in that case because they need feedback (smiles, eye contact) from their babies to know they are "getting it right" and you don't get that from babies who are blind.

As far as my Therapist - yeah, I'll keep him. This has been an especially challenging month (couple of months) and he's been right there. I actually asked him yesterday if he was mad at me, because we were going over some of the same old abandonment issues. He said, "no, just worried about you." I told him not to worry. He said it was his job and I wasn't "allowed" to tell him what to do, even if I did boss everyone else around. :) It is nice that we can laugh together at some of this.
