I'm 22 years old and my son will be turning 2 in about a week.
My son has a serious heart defect ( had to have open heart surgery at 2 days old & a few procedures after that and will likely need more) & he was recently diagnosed with autism (though were still unaware to where exactly he lies on the spectrum)
I met someone recently and im 100% sure that the interest is mutual and he's aware I have a kid
But he doesn't know that my child is "special needs"
My sons father left me when i was pregnant after finding out about the heart defect because it was "too much to deal with" for him, so im afraid that may happen again.
the father of my child is 7 years older than me, and the guy im talking to is only 6 years older, so please dont mention age as the reason for the fathers immaturity. I'm pretty sure age doesn't factor in this.

7 years older and he left... lol thats a good one. u dont see that every day.
im def not an ageist... but when u start getting serious since he knows u have a kid, i would make sure he knows about the kids extra needs. that way its not like wedding time and BAM and its like shock and horror and he some how just didn't notice or something... but could happen. so def soon as u think its getting real i would make sure he understands and see how he deals with it.2
