I am kind of on the fence on trying to put Xzavier on it.....He is learning disabled though no classification given to him as of yet. He has difficulty communicating and some other issues.

We had the option of putting our ds on ssi when he was diagnosed w/cancer.  We chose not to because our insurance paid 100% of his care.  If there had been gaps in his coverage, I would have.  It gets REALLY expensive doing therapies and treatments and can put a very real and big strain on a family.

 unless u have a diagnosis already its nearly impossible to do. it can happen but u may have to fight for it.

today I can say I just sat back and was greatful for having the greatest kids I could ask for. I am going to worry less and love a little more. I am going to stop counting the minutes till bed time and start counting the minutes till good night kisses. I am going to stop crying and start laughing. I know together this family can move mountains one rock at a time

Yes I would if it was the only way I could afford to pay for their health care expenses.
