Thankyou for posting this! I think it's brave to be so open about everything. I'm glad the diagnosis has helped. One of the children I worked with, his Dad refused to let him be diagnosed so he didn't get all the help he could have. I'm not sure...

you have great skill making

Posted on Wed, 15 Aug 2018

you have great skill making lots of facts easy and enjoyable to read. I had no idea Norway had a potato famine.
