Hi, thanks for taking the time to read our story. Our story starts when my wife and I met 16 years ago. 4 years later we welcomed our daughter who is a beautiful, big hearted, and most compassionate little person ever! Fast forward 7 years and now we welcomed Elijah. Our little family was complete. At about 18 months we started noticing that E was not hitting all the “normal “ milestones for a child his age. At the next doctors appointment we we’re referred to a neurologist and was given Elijah’s Autism diagnosis. We we’re determined to give him the best treatment and help that we can possibly find. We lived in Texas at the time and we soon found that Texas had very little to no help for kids on the Autism Spectrum. So doing what I hope any parents would do for their child with special needs in order to get him the best care and therapy we moved. I sold my half of a small business that I was a part of , which wast much. We used that to move to a state that had great benefits for families with members that had Autism. We left what little friends and family we had in Texas to be able to give our son a fighting chance at life. We moved to beautiful Colorado. Early intervention for Autism is key, so without missing a beat we left Texas in 3 months. So naturally we didn’t know how the housing situation was until we got here. Everything is so expensive here, from food to housing. Sorry I had to give some sort of background on our situation. My wife and I don’t have and immediate family on either side. My parents died when I was 18 years old and my wife’s parents are divorced and have other families that are not part of her life. So unfortunately my wife and I are alone as for as any kind of support system. Not only financial but more importantly we don’t have anyone to call and say ”hey I’ve had a rough day” etc. that’s another story for another time. Our son is non verbal, and doesn’t understand dangers, or that if he walks off a ledge he can hurt or die for that matter. We don’t know what the future hold for him. That’s what’s so scary for us because we don’t know what is gonna happen to him when WE die. Since we don’t have family to help once we’re gone, we’re forced to put the burden on his beautiful sister. We hate that that’s our reality, but it is. We don’t want Elijah to end up in a home once we’re gone. It breaks our heart to think that. As I write this at work I’m sobbing as I type. Our plan is to get us a forever home very soon, so hopefully by the time we go see our maker, the home will be mostly paid for or the mortgage is low enough that our daughter can be able to pay it while still being able to care for Elijah. I want her not worry about rent and also being her brothers everything. In order to accomplish this I’m asking for any help that I can get so I can pay off some debt that is holding us back from being able to be approved to buy a forever home. I have federal loans from a school for profit that was shut down for fraudulent activity.(ITT) We also have some collections accounts that equal to about 6,000. Due to COVID my wife has had to stay home with our son because the therapy center he was in had (2) different Covid outbreaks. Kids with special needs and sensory processing disorder have a harder time leaving their masks on and social distancing, like my son they don’t understand it. We’ve decided to keep him home. Our income is now cut in half, and we don’t have family or even friends that can help. We’re asking for anything that you can give. Thank you for your time.
