Amir’s Tuition Fund

It’s about that time of the year when people ask me what I want for my birthday. If you know me then you know that I’m not big on gifts. 

This year I am asking for people to donate to the love of my life.  Amir Al-Din is going to a private school for gifted children in the fall which means that I’m a tuition paying mom now.  This decision came after a long struggle/battle with a school system that didn’t fit his needs. He’s a child that’s considered twice exceptional and likely neurodivergent so the traditional classroom just wasn’t working. I would be super grateful for anything you could donate to the cost of his education, books and supplies.  

Thank you in advance for the love and support!
