Some people have no idea what it takes to raise a child with special needs, knowing that could mean for the rest of their lives they will be raising a child who will always need care. It take dedication, strength, a willingness to forfeit your own life - which many parents do, in order to caregive. Some of these kids never grow to a point where they can be independent.

Meanwhile hidden care costs place a family not able to participate in regular work in dire need of assistance, so not only do they give up their lives to fully support the needs of these children, they also become second rate citizens, languishing as beneficiaries, or worse as poor people.

Don't know where this woman has found the strength, but I hope her fight inspires others in her position to take up the fight.

We pay strangers to look after people with special needs, why can't we pay the people who love them and care for them the most?
