This was a text from one of my mom-friends in the early days of our stay-at-home order. It took me a second to register the meaning in this statement from someone who is my friend, my peer, who has children of the same age.
Romantic love and wedded bliss are everywhere! But you, a single parent to a special needs child, are somehow on the sidelines watching and wondering if you and your child will ever have a true and permanent love in your lives, too. As I was researching the mystery of love and relationships, of what drives couples apart, and what holds them together, etc.

I will share the highlights of what I learned from these experts about making a relationship work—whether you have typical or non-typical children—and maybe, just maybe, you will find yourself inspired to hop on your own path toward true and permanent love. You HAVE to spend time together. Even though we are all so busy with work, with running our kids to various therapies, with maintaining a home, helping with school work, etc. And that includes time for the two of you AND time together with the children as well.
Make sure you do that. If you let this lack of time for each other linger on, you are on your way to losing each other forever. Do you really want to grow old alone and never have genuine love in your life?
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. And they made it work! You vowed in the beginning of a relationship to always be open and honest with one another. You can tell the other person in the relationship EVERY day that you are glad they are in your life, what is great about the relationship, how you value their love and friendship, etc.
To the single mom raising a special needs child by jenn buell
At all times, you MUST treat the other person with respect. 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. I am proof that it is possible, I found the love of my life and he loves my child with special needs, and teaches her new things every day!
Kelly, Your article suggests that having a special needs child is not very relevant to whether or not romantic love is something to be found. So I would like to pose a question that you really did not pose to all of those experts: Would you, personally, be interested in a man who had a special needs child living with him?
Dating as a single parent of with special needs
Is there such a thing? My disabled daughter is turning 18 next month. No guy has taken me seriously as far as relationships go. I can understand but at the same time it has been incredibly lonely. I ended up in an abusive relationship at one point too that really messed me up and I was forcibly committed for suicidal behavior and put on antidepressants. You must be logged in to post a comment.
