Apparently, our neighbors house was broken into last night. That’s really nice and makes me feel really safe.
My parents just stopped by to bring Gavin and Elliott home after hanging out with them for the day. As we were standing on the front porch talking for a few minutes, there was 3 gunshots.
This neighborhood has gone to hell in a hand basket.
It’s so hard to get my family out of here for several reasons. For one thing, we’re stretched very thin financially. The other issue is Gavin’s health. We are just learning about where his health is going and I have no idea how we are going to weather this storm as it is.
The other issue revolves around actually finding a home. Trying to find a house that will work for 3 special needs kids and a wife that can’t use the stairs, is no easy task.
There are so many things to consider when trying to move a special needs family. We need to consider the layout of the house as well as the neighborhood itself.
We need a safe and understanding neighborhood in order to allow my family what they need to grow, safe, happy and healthy.
That is so much more easily said than done.

I know that this may sound silly but have you considered moving out of state? I know that all of your children's doctors are there but there are other hospitals all over the country that aren't surrounded by horrible neighborhoods. It was just a thought and I may not be helping any but I didn't know if it was anything you've considered.
come to NS, Canada.
I know just what you mean about location…I was so fortunate to rent the home owned by our church for the special kids and myself. No neighbors, one floor, and plenty of acres to wander on safely. I was offered this when I had no idea of where to go, so I am so hoping that you too will catch such a lucky break. Tho we are kinda viewed as a "cause", the benefits so outweigh that. Am really praying for some relief for all of you.
