I have a child that is 16yrs old but has the mind of a 6 month old and she will always be that baby. I am a single mom and have to work because her SSI is so low, which means that my babysitters are my parents that are in their 70's because I do not qualify for a home nurse because I know more than they do and she is just not eligible for any of that. The other day I went to the SS Office to discuss my daughters options and ended up getting mad and telling them that at the rate it is going with her SSI and if they keep taking it away from her, I was going to end up having to pay them for her being handicapped. She will NEVER be able to walk or talk or even eat food with a g-tube, but let me make $1.00 over the limit and then they are interested in her "well-being"!

a cause close to my heart not because any of ny family have a disability but because we are very fortunate not to have one and these people have been because of the media and the present Government made to feel like beggars and criminals and the Media have even turned many normal people against them PLEASE SIGN AND SUPPORT THESE UNFORTUNATE PEOPLE!

People are disabled through no fault of their own. They should not have to struggle financially along with the struggles they encounter every day on account of their physical limitations.
