We want to thank everyone for visiting our web site. We hope that Sydney and Sadie will inspire you, and help everyone understand that miracles really do occur. The girls have brought so much happiness to our family, and we thank God everyday for them!
Unfortunately, because Sydeny required very specialized care, it became evident early on, that either my husband or myself was going to have to stop working to take care of her full time. This was a very hard decision. My husband Eric has been a Deputy Sheriff for 9 years, and I had been a retail manager at Macy's. We decided that I should be the one to stay home and take care of Sydney. Unfortunately, that cut our income in half. This has put a huge financial burden on our family. My husband makes $11.00 (can you believe it!) a year too much for us to qualify for any type of assistance.
We have made huge changes in our family lifestyle, and we are surviving on one income, but Sydney's needs are very costly. Sydney's medicine is typically $3000 a month, she recently recieved disability medicaid however prior to that, we had to pay 20%, that is $600 a month! Sydney is hospitalized at least once a month. We are struggling and obviously in debt! No contribution is too big or too small. Sydney will have to have special medical care the rest of her life, and will always live with us. We need all the help we can get!
