I "think" this will be the last thing I post about insurance coverage for children with autism. It's not a promise, but since the insurance reform has reached the federal level, I'm not sure what can happen after that.
You all have been so sweet and supportive over our journey with autism and my little speeches at the capitol. I just thank you from the bottom of my heart.
On the final note of this experience, I am asking you all, if you feel so led, to please go to this LINK and read more about the Federal Autism Insurance Reform. You can fill in the blanks on a simple form to have a letter go to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry M. Reid telling them kids with autism and the families caring for them NEED insurance coverage for the treatment of autism. Imagine if you couldn't get your child the help he or she needed. It's heartbreaking. This will help my Evan and the tens of thousands out there just like him, especially those that are still little bitty and just getting diagnosed. The earlier on they get treatment, the much brighter their future!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, my sweet friends. If you send a letter, I'd love to know it if you want to leave a comment. Know you have just done a BIG thing! Also, if you would like to send this link to anyone else you know that would like to support this legislation, please feel free to send it on.
