    Just don't understand how something so important to Steven's full recovery can be denied by Anthem. I don't get the fact that people can make such a life changing decision. But I know you won't give up getting Steven what he needs.
    Proud of Steven & his driving evaluation. I know it is a concern but I have no doubt Steven can handle.
    Love the pictures of Aaron's grave site.
    Hope you all have a great weekend.

    Have you looked into United Healthcare Children's Foundation?  http://www.uhccf.org/  They can offer two grants per person (each one up to $5000)...not sure if there is an age limit, though.

    You may want to reach out to the Cerebral Palsy foundation. I am a Care Manager for Humana and I have been successful in getting my patients all sorts of equipment through them. None of my patients had cerebral palsy either.  Thanks for the updates. Your family is an inspiration to many!!

    Just want to say that ALL of you are amazing. You each bring your own strengths to your everday challenges & none of you could do this without the others. You are such a great example of what a family means & should be.
    I get more proud everyday of Steven & his determinations of wanting to drive & now having his own place. Just so unbelievable how strong & determined he is.
    With all my love & support.

    So happy Steven is receiving a scholarship to help out with expenses.
    I am so glad you get to enjoy time together on the weekends.  I always enjoy your pictures you share.  I can't imagine the emotions you are feeling about Steven wanting to drive.  But I'm sure if Steven didn't feel he was ready he wouldn't put you through these emotions. 
    So hope you hear a positive response from Anthem soon.  I'm praying you do.
    Hope you get to enjoy the rest of the week with Steven being on spring break.
    With all my love and support.
