During difficult times, it is so comforting to know people still care and want to help. Thank you for your kindness and understanding. This pandemic is something my kids don't yet understand. They have never sheltered in place, they don't know why we can't go to the park or visit other family members. They miss their school,teachers, friends, playgrounds, and birthdays. It's hard to picture we now live in a world where children running free with laughter is a distant memory. My kids barely can keep their face masks on for more than a minute. I don't know if they can comply or acknowledge the new rules set in place for public outings. There are so many uncertainties that my family struggle with daily, financial challenges add extra stress. Words cannot express my gratitude to all the donors who have helped fund us. We thrive to move forward and do better during this pandemic. We are indebted to you for your compassion. Thank you always, Vy Le.
Coronavirus: Mom with 2 Autistic Daughters Needs Help
I am 41 years old with 2 daughters with autism. One is 7 and other is 6 years old. My kids are nonverbal and require ABA therapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy. The girls enjoy going to school and going to the parks therefore this quarantine lockdown has been very difficult for them. They do not understand why we must stay home.
I work part-time at San Mateo County as a Medical Specialist. I would like to work more but I am the primary caregiver for my girls. My husband was working full time, but hotels closed down die to pandemic, so he is unemployed now. Thankfully we are living with my parents - without them I don�t know how we could financially handle this situation. He is applying for unemployment. Once the lockdown is lifted, my husband hops to go back to work immediately. Overall, we were doing ok before this pandemic hit but without my husbands income we are struggling to pay our bills and essential needs. We need Modest Needs help paying our phone bill.
The extra money will help us get ahead and worry less. Worrying about food, survival, health, and safety gives me anxiety. We are grateful for each day with my parents and our children. Happy we are sheltered in place and protected under one roof. We pray for a better tomorrow but cherish what we already have. Thank you for your time and consideration.
