I AM A 68 YEAR OLD GRANDMOTHER RAISING HER 13 YEAR OLD GRANDSON. MY HUSBAND AND
I HAVE HAD CUSTODY SINCE HE WAS THREE. HE IS A SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD WITH A LOT OF DISABILITIES
INCLUDING BI POLAR DISORDER, AUTISM, POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER AND A LOW IQ (WHICH RESULTS IN A LOT OF LEARNING DISABILITIES). BUT TO MY HUSBAND AND I HE IS OUR LITTLE MIRACLE FROM HEAVEN. WE GET VERY LITTLE HELP FROM THE STATE OF NEVADA. HIS PARENTS HAVE ALWAYS PAID US CHILD SUPPORT BUT HIS MOTHER LOST HER JOB AND RAN OUT OF UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS
LIKE MILLIONS OF OTHER AMERICANS. WE HAVE ALWAYS PAID FOR HIS INSURANCE OURSELVES AND SOCIAL SECURITY GIVES US $238/MONTH AND ON GIVES US $300/MONTH.
WE DONT GET FOOD STAMPS, MEDICAID OR ANY ASSISTANCE. SO OUR DOCTOR TOLD TRU VISTA ABOUT US. LAST YEAR I WAS HOSPITALIZED FIVE TIMES, AND MY GRANDSON TWICE. IT WAS NOT A GOOD YEAR FOR ANY OF US. BUT DIANE AT TRU VISTA SHOWED UP AT OUR FRONT DOOR
WITH A $100 GIFT CARD FROM WALMART TO BUY HIS CHRISTMAS PRESENTS. WHAT A BLESSING!!!!
MY HUSBAND GAVE 21YEARS TO THE MARINE CORPS AND THEY ARE THE ONE WHO HAS HIM INSURED.
ANYWAY, I DIDNT MEAN TO RAMBLE BUT THIS IS A WORTH WHILE NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION AND MAYBE SOME DAY WE CAN REPAY THEM. THANK YOU
