My husband and I have journeyed down Jared’s path, too, and saw more miracles happening to us and Jared.
This path follows Jared from eighteen years old to twenty-one years old—a milestone made beyond doctors’ expectations and a life lived against all odds. Jared and I taught a lot of people along his path. People are not all the same and situations are not all the same. Everyone is an individual and have their own unique path. Medical treatments need to be made for the best quality of life for each person. Having special needs shouldn’t determine the kind of care you receive. We are not a one-size-fit-all person. What works for some people may not work for others, especially if you have complicated medical issues.
Jared’s many medical issues made some doctors not wanting to care for him. I hope this book will help others to not give up hope and keep advocating as long as it takes to get our special needs children the best medical care they can have and deserve. Jared has had a lot of very good doctors in his life; you just have to be willing to look for them and appreciate them when you find them.
About the Author
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 32 years. We live out in the country and enjoy our nice neighborhood.
I have three cats and they are very enjoyable. I like to paint ceramics and go on walks when I am not working. I participate in a 4-H club called Best Friends 4-H Club. This club works with children with special needs to handle canines and learn about canines and then can participate in the Berrien County Youth Fair. All the canines are therapy dogs or qualify to be a therapy dog. I am also club secretary. Jared and I have participated in this club for many years. I also volunteer for a local senior center for which I transport people to appointments and shopping errands. I also help them with the monthly commodities when my job allows me. I have a part-time job working at a casino but I am always advocating for my son. I am just a mom doing the best I can for my son, to carry our love to eternity.
