Liam's school fund

Many of you know that we have been waiting to hear back regarding Liam's grant for his school. We have heard nothing after emails, certified letters and phone messages so we assume that , if any resolution is to take place, it will likely take quite some time.
Meanwhile, we are faced with choosing to leave Liam at his current school, where he is thriving or taking him out mid-year to put him in public school.
While our local public school is a good one and we are sure the staff there would do everything they could to make it an easier transition, we think it would be a big setback to him. He has done so well in his small classroom with typical kids and it is Mama thinks it would be a hugely difficult thing on him to move now.
So we must find a way to continue paying for his school through the end of this school year. We are here, hat in hand, sad faces on, humbly asking you to donate to help us pay for his tuition.
We will be giving updates on his progress and the grant situation as we receive them. We appreciate your generosity and your sharing our campaign with your friends as well.
For some of you, it may seem like a small amount of money but to us, and to Liam, it makes an enormous difference.
Thank you for your prayers and good vibes.
Update Nov. 19.
We are humbled and grateful for your generosity! I was thinking tgat if enough of our friends and family donated $5, then we can keep him at school. Instead, you have stepped up in an unexpected way. We cannot thank you enough! We just got the funds transferred to pay his December tuition!!
