Hi, I'm Mariella Marcello, 27, divoced mum of 3. I got a set of twins aged too named Candy and Clive and I also have a 10 year old daughter named Ella. Ella suddenly went mute when she was 6. I was wondering if there were any other parents with a mute child, wherther they suddenly stopped speaking or were born this way. It broke my heart because she was always a chatty little thing. I thought it was something to do with her clarinet teacher so stopped the lessons, that's all I could put it down too. The stress of her loss of speech is one of the factors that caused my marriage breakdown, although I won't pin it all on her of course. I still love her to a billion pieces but it is hard and a mum can't help but wonder if her lil lady will meet her prince charming or not. We're both learning sign langauge and I'v been taking Candy and Clive since they were 6 weeks old to baby sign classes. Just wanted to speak to someone else in the same kinda situation. I work part time as a prision officer and I work as a model a couple of times a week aswell. Well all I wanted was to speak with other mums of a mute kiddie or who knew a mute kid, just for advice really, she doesn't get bullied anymore, she's pretty popular now but she used to and I think it did her self esteem real damage but good old mumma mangaged to get it back up. lol anyhow, please write back.

Sweetie I am so sorry! What does the doctors say, is it a medical condition? It does look as though she has a great mom keep up the good work. If it is caused by some kinda trama in her life than it is quite possible that one day she will speak again. Keep up the faith!

We all guess its trauma. We've been to so many doctors and have had loadsa tests on her for all sorts. They thought she had a brain tumour at one stage, Doctors say the same as you kinda said, "she'll perhaps find her voice one day" Mind you, as a lil girl she always wanted to be a popstar, but so did I at that age, I think every little girl dreams of singing dont they, but I doubt she ever will, I have tried getting her to sing instead of chatting but I dont get nothing back you know? Well, I love her to little pieces and she's a great lass really, she's great with Candice and Clive and we're all learning together. I feel bad alot as if it was a trauma, I should of prevented it somehow. A mumma always feels its their fault though dont they? I blame myself for everything. Candy fell over at nursery the otehr day and I went out and replaced her shoes in case it was them, the nurseryworker kept on telling me, "Ms Marcello, don't be silly, she was just running too fast for her legs." but a mumma never listens eh? Thanks for the great "Mom" compliemt tho, it makes me feel better. Faith that she will speak again is what helps keep up ticking. Anyhow I suppose id best start cooking before I get shouted at by my 2 year olds!

Dont feel guilty, I think beeing a mom we feel quilty for every thing including thing that were not our fault. We always wonder if we could have done something diffrent something more or something less! See that is all part of beeing a mother we constantly worry. Just keep doing what you are doing, and have faith! If she never does speak again, you will still have her with all the love and joy she will provide.
