David, I feel your pain. I had a stroke 8 weeks before my son was born. My older child was 22 months. I’ve been disabled their whole lives, couldn’t really ever pick them up.

They are now 20 and 22 years old. I guess they are as “fucked up” as any kids.

You no doubt will have a challenging road ahead. Best of luck to you.
