When she was first diagnosed six years ago, I had no idea what autism was. All I was told was that my daughter would never speak. I was told she would never have social skills, or read and she would need round-the-clock care for the rest of her life.
And then my world shattered into a million pieces. And I cried over the life my daughter would have and if I would be able to do this on my own as a single parent. That was a tough week. I don't even remember driving home after I had gotten Nevaeh's diagnosis. I remember collapsing
into my grandmothers arms and crying.
Ever since then, each day has been a fight. Nevaeh and I have fought for the life she should have and what I knew in my heart she was capable of achieving! I dreamed of the memories she could make, the sports she could participate in. We have fought with school administrators and therapists and even our own emotions. I am so proud of the steps Nevaeh has taken to overcome so much!
Last year her basketball AND volleyball team won their championship! She was student of the month and on graduating from the 5th grade, Nevaeh received the citizenship award for her humanitarian efforts along with her graduation certificate
Nevaeh has come so far but she is transitioning into the 6th grade and that is why I need your help.
There is a wonderful three-week language and reading comprehension camp followed by 3 days a week for 6 weeks that will help during her transition into middle school! BUT it is beyond my budget!
3-week all day camp is: $2,250
With $450 per week for 6 weeks: $2,700
Total of $4,950
I only have two weeks to reach my goal. YIKES!
Thank you so much for your help and please don't forget to share our link.
