Carly is a 43-year-old woman who was diagnosed with a learning disability when she was in her thirties. She is a single mom, and has a 19-year-old daughter who is also disabled. Carly is her own guardian, and lives with her daughter in a large city in Alberta. Growing up, Carly went to regular school; although she faced many difficulties in her classes, she never received any support. Carly and her parents never discussed birth control or sex, and she learned about sex from Sex Ed classes. She got pregnant at the age of 23, and her parents accepted her pregnancy quite well. Her ex-partner was diagnosed with ADHD, and also had problems with substance abuse. He was violent towards Carly for years, and the couple often split up and got back together during their daughter’s early childhood. Child and Family Services (CFS) took Carly’s daughter when she was 8-years-old, because they believed that Carly was not able to take care of her since they both have disabilities. She was not allowed to see her daughter for three months, and during the next two years she was only allowed to have supervised visits. Carly fought the government to get her child back, and had to prove her competency by changing her living conditions. Most of the complaints CFS had about her parenting referred to her economic status. Her disability was only discovered through one of the many assessments she was ordered to undergo. Her daughter lived with many different foster families as well as in a group home, and was put on medication without Carly’s permission. Carly was eventually able to regain custody of her daughter when she was 12-years-old. Today, she and her ex-partner are friends, and have a cooperative relationship when it comes to raising their daughter. Carly is trying to keep her daughter informed about birth control and other sexuality-related issues, and they have an open and supportive relationship.
