Karen's life

Karen was a beautiful baby, always smiling but slower at developing than other babies. It soon became apparent that she had learning difficulties and so she went into special units at the primary, junior and senior schools that her brother and sister attended. However, she looked quite normal although young-looking and very attractive. She tended to have tantrums occasionally but I knew this was part of her condition - she was a lovely person.

Karen's looks and innocence made her very vulnerable

I have only, since losing Karen, realised just how vulnerable she was which is something other parents need to be aware of when deciding what to do as their children become adults.
