Youíre making the smart choice

We cancelled our annual beach trip with the in-laws this year, too (theyíre also in WV).

The hospice nurse filling in...

Iím just so sad today

My mom is going to die. Soon.

An ABA therapist should be overseen by a BCBA who should have a heck of a lot more education than a high school diploma.

Do you have access to tele-health services?

I thought tele-Health was going to be a cluster-eff for DS and he shocked the heck out of me and was amazing.

No leadership = no cohesive plan

Go Fund Me

No, I hate asking people for money. Hate, hate, hate it.
