We don't think of us or anyone else being a 'media hound' for Autism is bad. Autism Speaks are media hounds, to raise funds. Mom26 is a hound to raise awareness and acceptance, as are we! We have been accused by some of going after the media spotlight for financial gain. I guess I'm guilty in some respects. I did some major grieving as we discovered that all six of our children were on the spectrum. Now what, I thought. How can I support the added expense we are and now having to bare?
I love my children and want the best for them. But, the best COSTS , I figure that I need to be rich (6 figures plus) to get a decent house, therapies and to protect them from themselves. If 1,000,000 people bought just one of our Autism t-shirts... we'd be set. Until that happens we'll manage as best as we can.
I'm on the constant prowl for ways to make money at home and things are picking up. However, if anyone is doing something right now that is working for them... let me know. In my searching as I find good home money making methods I'll get the word out. And if anyone thinks we're slacking, give me a call and I'll invite you over to spend a day. Give you a little reality check.
I need a 'financial mentor', someone who knows how to do it and would be willing to teach me.
Just the DAD
