Help Youssif and his family

My name is Wisam.  I am from Iraq. In 2007 masked men doused my son, Youssif, in gasoline and set him on fire. He was barely five years old at the time. CNN covered my sons story and thanks to the generosity of CNN viewers we were able to come to Los Angeles and get treatment. We are so grateful for the help that we got, but we are struggling to make ends meet. Youssif still requires surgery and treatment and his doctors are close by and the community is used to him. He has his friends here and its hard for him to move into new environments where people stare and are uncomfortable around him, especially in his age group, which makes relocation really difficult. I am doing my best to take care of my family. I have been able to find part time work, but I have struggled to find a full time job. I am having a hard time making ends meet. I hope to one day have a full time job and I dream of the day when I can provide a permanent home for my family.
