I Can't Afford to Get My Daughter the Therapy She Needs before Christmas, & I Need Help Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mom of a daughter with special needs. Two and a half years ago, I adopted my amazing daughter. She is 8 and a half years old and is truly the most determined, hardest working little girl I've ever met. Despite her various disabilities, she still works so hard and has so much joy to give to the world. I am a full-time special education teacher at a local Title 1 public school as well.

While I thankfully still hold a full-time job, I still have relatively large expenses that come along with caring for my daughter. Our biggest expense is the therapy intensive that she undergoes every month, and this includes 18 hours of physical and occupational therapy over 6 days. This therapy intensive really makes a huge difference to her and has helped her develop more functional independence as well as her existing skills in general. I recently found a clinic near us that offers one of these intensives and scheduled one for over Christmas break. I have been doing my best to save up for this intensive, but I'm worried I will fall just short of being able to pay for it.

I really need help paying for my daughter's therapy because it will do so much to help increase her quality of life. She will be able to develop the skills that she needs to overcome her disabilities in order to thrive independently. Since adopting her, I have pledged to take care of her needs and to give her a better quality of life, and this therapy is the only way that I can fulfill that pledge to her. I want her to know that there are people in the world who care about her and who want to see her maximize her potential no matter what may stand in her way. Thank you all, in advance, for believing in my daughter and for your support as well.
