erinoak ibi therapy funding for max after 27 months.
This afternoon we got the call. The call we have been waiting for since Max was diagnosed with Autism in December of 2008. Max's name has finally come to the top of the Erinoakkids IBI funding wait list. This means that as of March 1st, we will no longer be footing the entire bill for Max's essential behaviour therapy. A huge financial burden has been lifted off of our shoulders. We can finally exhale.
I thought I would feel overjoyed when Max got picked up for funding. I thought I would want to dance in the streets. But I don't and I didn't. What I'm feeling is more a huge relief (and I'm also in shock because it really felt like this day would never come). When I got home from work today and saw Max, I wanted to cry. For him, for us, that we somehow made it, and that facing this period of adversity has shown us just how many people are truly rooting for our family, for Max.
I'm going to keep sending positive energy out into the universe as it seems to be coming back tenfold. Time to pop the champagne.
