Car needed for two special needs boys!!
Organized by: Andrey Lisa Orekhov
Hello this is Andrey and Lisa, We moved to Florida from Seattle wa in Jan 2014 to do a cochlear implant for my 4 year old to hear. I could not do it in Washington because both boys were always sick because of weather.2 months ago I found out my 2 year old also has hearing loss,now he wears hearing aids,then last week both my boys were diagnosed with autism,and both had ear tube surgery last month.They each have many separate therapies weekly:occupational,physical,speech,audiology,early steps therapy,and soon autism therapy. Its hard here with jobs,but many programs for deaf and hard of hearing. The school my 4 year old went to in wa made him even more behind,regular preschool. No signing,made fun of everywhere,came home with face full of dry tears every day. The deaf school he goes to here he is not made fun of,they are changing little by little,and my two year old will be able to go to the same deaf school as David even though he's only two,such a blessing!My 4 year old also crosses his eye as soon as his glasses are off. Noone can tell us why this is happening,dr is referring our family to do genetic testing,both sides of our families all had no problems like this with their children. Our car was re posessed sunday night,4 days ago. It has been very hard going with two special needs boys on a city bus half a day every day to therapy,and my two year old has been missing all his therapies this week because my 4 year old comes home on the bus at noon from summer school. It is a requirement to go to all therapies in order to get the cochlear implant surgery. everything I do is for my kids,all I want is to give them the best hope for their future. They both dont talk or even respond to signing, dr says because of autism. Every day feels like its impossible to move forward,God helped us this far and we are not losing hope,to hear my children speak, or communicate,for them to be independant,the best future possible.Is there any way you could help our family?we desperately need any car that drives.My husband recently lost his job,he has a job lined up in 2 weeks but that and everything else will not be possible without a car.every extra chance we had this week we walk to dealerships,explaining everything,the best deal we got was $500 down and $350/month not counting insurance.all we have now is ssi for my boys to cover rent.Please help us, I am scared to be homeless with my little ones.Thank you!God bless you!
