Handicap Van for Carlee Grace

Hello, 
I am not even sure where to start. As most of you probably already know, Carlee Grace is a very special little girl.  Carlee Grace was born on March 12th 2009, in Honolulu, Hawaii. She was 2 weeks early, weighing a big whopping 5 pounds, 1 ounce. She was such a beautiful little thing, that stole our hearts immediately. As time progressed, we started noticing small things, that eventually turned to big things. Carlee was missing every single milestone she was supposed to reach. Unfortunately some of those milestones she never reached, such as walking and talking. Carlee understands more then we think, but what is going on in that coconut we may never know. As my sweet girl gets bigger, she also gets heavier.. which means her wheel chairs get bigger. For years we have dreamed of a handicap van, unfortunately it has never been financially in our budget. Carlees wheel chair doesn't fit at all in my 2011 Kia sportage, I have to use her stroller which I'm so thankful for. It fits in my dad's Nissan Titan in the back, but if it's raining that's no good. It fits in my moms 2014 GMC Acadia however each time she is having to lift that heavy thing in, and out of it which is really starting to burn her out. Not to mention, she recently broke both of her ankles, and has had crutches for the last 2 months. So basically to get to the point here, we as a family have decided to suck up our pride, reach out.. and ask for help. If we can get at least a good down payment on a handicap van, we can finally make our dreams come true. Life with Carlee has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride, and not the one you are throwing your hands up, and screaming with joy! We, the Queen family don't enjoy asking for help and will fight until we hit rock bottom to avoid asking for help. But, you see not only have we hit rock bottom..we've also learned rock bottom has a basement. So, if you could find it in your heart to donate that Starbucks money to help my little girl, our little fighter..I promise you, it would be something you didn't regret. Feel free to ask me, or my family any questions. We have nothing to hold back. I want to go ahead, and say thanks to anyone who even took time to read my book. Even if you share this, you could make a difference. Hold your babies tight! Be thankful every day for their voice that never stops, and when you get tired of chasing them.. be glad they can run. I wanted to add because I know a lot of people have asked. Carlee doesn't have a "true" diagnoses, other then autistic, epilepsy, and of course severally developmentally delayed . Yes she has been tested for everything you can imagine. She been to some of the most high end hospitals, for the most intense testing still we really don't have any answers. Carlee can have multiple seizures a day, and by that I don't mean two, or three. We are talking more like 15 to 30 each day, even on medication. Still she manages to smile.  Please help us make her life, and our life just a little bit easier as we don't know what the future holds for this little girl. Thank you.
