So this may not shock you.
We are sad.
So very sad that this is not going away.
Mason is who Mason was.
Mason is who God intended him to be.
Is this hard for us, for me?
I don't know when this won't be hard for me.
But the realization of it all has begun to sink in.
My son has Special needs and they are not going away.
Mason has Smith-Magenis Syndrome and Autism.
There is much to be done.
There are so many decisions to be made.
Are we ready?
Well we have to be.
This week I called our government office...
the office in charge of paying for all medical supplies.
I left several messages that they were to call me by the end of the day.
"Waiting eight weeks just to get an appointment that would be another eight to twelve weeks away, and then a six to eight week waiting period for the decision was unacceptable".
I received a message at the end of the day from them, they were leaving for the day.
So I left a message stating that if I had to give my son over to social services in the next six months, it would be on her".
We would sell every last item we had before giving Mason over.
Just so you know.
I received a call the very next morning from the nurse.
Our appointment in on Monday, November 29th, 2010
That's right this Monday.
Squeaky wheel gets the oil.
And I got the oil.
The nurse will come assess and talk with us.
She said she will have a pretty good idea whether or not he will get on the program.
If she says no...
I have yet to receive all the papers we need to apply for the Autism funding.
I know that the coming weeks are going to be an emotional time for us.
When the pieces of paper that say my son has Smith-Magenis Syndrome and Austism arrive...
Can I ask for extra prayer this Monday?
This Nurse needs to see that Mason needs to be on this program.
That he has the right to be on the program.
The final decision will be made on December 16, 2010 by a board of government people.
People who have never met my son or my family.
Pray for their hearts to be open.
Pray we get funding.
Funding would change everything.
The past is the past.
The debt is just debt.
But we can't keep up with the way everything has been going.
There is no more money to be begged, borrowed and never stolen.
I need to thank you, the support has been so needed.
Both Nick & I have felt very alone for a very long time.
You have touched us, your comments & emails have kept us going these past two weeks.
