Family with Special Needs - HELP NEEDED NOW!



A family of four needs help moving from Florida to Delaware.  This family unexpectedly lost their husband/father in 2015.  Their Mother faces disabilities, which severely impacts her vision and her heart.  Unfortunately, the problems with her sight leaves her permanently disabled, and unable to drive.

This family needs to move to Delaware.  Unfortunately, they have no means of support and no family to help them out in Florida.  Delaware is their home, and as such, the Mother and her three amazing children will be able to have family and friends for caring, love, and support.  Also, at their current location, there is no bus service available in the area in which they live.  The bus line is the Mom’s only way to get her children to doctor’s appointments.  It is also her only way to pick up groceries, prescriptions, and all the needs for the family.

The youngest boy, Chris, is 8 years old, and has Autism which leaves him with extremely severe problems.  Due to these problems, his Mom has great difficulty getting him to keep a mask on his face.  He is unable to talk, and still needs to use/wear pull-ups.  He is a sweet, loving little boy.  But, as you can imagine, life is difficult trying to be a single parent to this wonderful young boy.

Because of the difficulty and inability to drive, as well as the inability for the young boy with autism to understand why he must wear a mask on a plane at all times, the Mother is forced to consider other means of returning home to Delaware.  I have been friends with this family for 9 years now.  The Mom is a wonderful, loving and caring person.  Her devotion to her children is to be commended.  I am blessed to have this family in my life.

Her family also includes a daughter, who is 11 and a son, who is 14.   These are good children and do all they can to help their Mom, and to play with their little brother.  But, with funds being so short, and with a great deal of medical expenses, it proves impossible to get ahead.

As I mentioned, I love this family very much, and, unfortunately, they have fallen on hard times.  Please find it in your heart to help them out!  God bless you.
