Disability Essentials For My Boys
We have struggled for years, and could really use some help. Thank you!!!
Thank you for anything you can spare to help our family.
So much has happened since my campaign started - we have moved, the kids are back in school, I'm actually leaving the house approximately once a week... These have all been great things, but still, money is a huge issue for us, and always will be.
Nicky has started acting lessons - the first thing he has ever shown an interest in that doesn't involve a screen! Unfortunately lessons cost about $1000 a year.
And school!!! When homeschooling, we received funding from the government. That funding has stopped, but school is costing us thousands more a year than homeschooling did.
Our medical expenses are ever increasing - again we have referrals sitting here waiting for the money to pay the travel expenses and gap fees to actually see the specialists we need to see. This is also our biennial testing year... Hearts and eyes and other things need a check up and the travel and gap fees can get expensive here too...
It's just all too much trying to do all this on the pension. I'd love to work, and my husband and I are actually working on a long term plan that will hopefully lead to some, but given everything, it's more probable that our idea will simply end up a hobby...
So here I am. Wishing I could close this account but knowing I can't for the sake of my kids. I love my dream world, but I have to live in this one.
If you can help, thank you so much. And if you can't, but you send best wishes and Internet chocolate, thank you for that too!!! :-)
We will also be signing the boys up as members ($59 each), so that instead of paying $15 each per session ($30 a week each), we will pay $16 a week membership (saving us $14 a week... each!)
We are all here for my kids - and I love you all for loving them! But you are also helping me. And I love you all for that too! Thank you!
