Repairing Hearts & Homes
Raising a child is sometimes challenging. Raising a complex (special needs) child presents entirely different challenges on a daily basis.
One of those challenges can be choosing between a child's medical needs and everything else. Recent studies by Money magazine, The Consumerism Commentary blog, and the advocacy group Autism Speaks, state the additional cost associated with raising a complex child can range from $25,000 a year to $60,000 per year. This is money that money that most families don't have?
So, how do they provide care for their children? They cut back spending elsewhere. That often means cutting back or ignoring necessary home maintenance. Maybe the windows that don't open can stay shut another year. The flaking paint can flake away for one more season. The flower bed can remain unplanted one more summer.
These are the difficult choices that no family should have to make.
