I just want to reach out and hug you. I can't imagine how hard all of this with Ethan and Chad has been on you, but you are doing a great job taking care of Ethan. He is an amazing little boy and that is mostly because of you being such a good mommy. Hugs.

Joining the big group hug for you. I wish I were closer to provide support. Where are you again? I assume you have a social worker from the hospital--I imagine there must be regional help. Have you got a PEPs group in your area (Program for Early Parenting Support)? They might be a good support. I can't imagine how tough this is for you.

Big hugs--and many warm thoughts,

((hugs)) you are a great mom do not beat yourself up on top of everything else. I second what others have said about reaching out to a family support group of some kind. I would also see about talking to a lawyer or someone to get the SSI and child support fixed so you don't need to worry so much. Caring for a child with special needs is very draining don't feel bad that you need a break, it is entirely normal. Can you get your mom or someone you trust get fully trained to step in sometimes too since dh is dropping the ball(which is his loss IMO). We are here for you whenever you need to vent.
