Martinez Family, The pandemic has been confusing for my children. Two of my children have Autism, and they all have ADHD. We were unable to travel for a memorial service after the death of my oldest son's biological mother because the area in California was on lockdown. I am a single mother now homeschooling three of my kiddos. We started social distancing very early because I have had two brain surgeries and have a VP shunt in my head. I was recovering from my lastest brain surgery and was ready to return to work as a School Psychologist, and then the schools shut down. I am still unemployed, and my savings are now gone. I know I'm a strong woman, but when this started, I didn't think I could be a home school mom; however, our churchward, school teachers, and friends are our village and help get us through emotionally, spiritually, and temporally.
