User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeWe are so grateful and thankful for all your help. We have a very busy and stressful home. Having that extra help through counseling changes our lives with every visit, twice a week. Our four children all benefit so much from counseling on a farm versus an office. They are able to freely and safely go around the farm and work on certain behaviors. The two older children are autistic with other medical issues they benefit the most. The third child is typical with no health concerns but struggles in our busy home. Dad is military and is usually gone, the moving around, living in a home with siblings with challenges is not easy. The baby just went through surgery and will have health issues as he grows. He just started early intervention and that has been tough for us. We already have two disabled kids and now our little one might be on the autism spectrum too. It's alot to take in as a family and as parents. We try not to think about how we feel just in what the kids need and our family. This counseling helps us achieve a peace of mind and learn new coping skills for new challenges.

Military Family Struggling To Pay For Kids Medical Care

My Story:

I am a mother of four children. Two are disabled with autism and other medical challenges, Matthew 8 and Emma 6, the other two are typical, Michael 4 and Eli 15 months old. The baby has some medical issues, will be needing surgery soon for some Pulmonary issues he has had since he was born. We are a military family; my husband is deployed in Afghanistan. I home-school all my children. Our faith in God is what keeps us sane, and in joy with all the blessings and challenges we get with our children, our marriage, and family. We take it a day at a time and sometimes even a minute at a time.

As parents, we always put our kids needs first above ours. We can pay our monthly bills, but we have had trouble keeping up with their counseling sessions. The provider only accepts our insurance, but not Medicaid leaving us with extra costs. We need Modest Needs to help us pay for the balance we owe their counseling provider. Without counseling I fear our children will regress and our family will fall apart.

We have reached our deductible with our insurance and there is no longer any out of pocket costs for this year. And hopefully next year the provider will gain a 'spot' with being a Medicaid provider. This will be a one-time request. Anything we can get helps. Thank you.
