Review for A Rosie Place, South Bend, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A rosie non profit

A Rosie Place is a great resource for parents like me raising a child with severe medical issues. The things I like the best are the family events and playgroup. My son gets to play with kids just like him. He gets to see other kids with tracheotomy's, kids eating using a feeding tube, and kids rolling around in wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment just like him. I get to talk to other parents just as exhausted and stressed as me caring for their medical fragile child 24 hours a day. They truly understand what it's like to celebrate the small accomplishments their child makes that most people take for granted. I can talk to someone that really knows what it's like to worry that you're back won't give out, so we can continue to transfer our growing children. They understand a simple trip to the store involves packing all emergency equipment, suction machines, transferring the child from wheelchair to car seat, and not to mention lifting the wheelchair in and out of the vehicle because most of us can't afford wheelchair accessible vehicles. A Rosie place is a great organization to help medically fragile kids.

Review for A Rosie Place, South Bend, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A Rosie Place is a great organization that helps families with severely handicapped children. At A Rosie Place we can make connections with other families dealing with the same medical issues and know we are not alone. They have resource information and support to aid us in this difficult journey we are in. Most of us are to busy caring for our handicapped child we just don't have the time or energy to seek out the information and support A Rosie Place has developed for us. The minute you walk in the door they accept and treat your child as the great gift you have been given. This is a gift in itself because most people look at our children's awkward movements, noises, feeding tubes, wheelchairs, they can not see past the physical issues to see the true normal happy child within. They are creating a great community to support the children that are blessed to be alive due to modern technologies and advances in the medical field. Thank you A Rosie Place for everything you do.
