August 24, 2015 -J. R. asks from Edison - I just stared the process for having my 8 year old son tested for a genetic disorder that his father had (going through insurance, etc.).

August 13, 2015 -J. R. asks from Edison - I was recently told that my son was well on his way to being a "mommas boy". It hit me right in the middle of my heart because I dont think my son is a mommas boy. I think we have a very tight bond. BUT maybe he is?! My son and I have lived by ourselves for over 6 years (...
