Hi there!

For over a year now, I suspected that something was not right with my son, Ethan. I voiced my concerns to his pediatrician who did an evaluation and referred us to and Early Intervention center.

They have been working with him and he is making progress but, not good enough. EI and I voiced our concerns to his pediatrician who referred to us to Children's Hospital in Boston.

On June 13th of this year, we went for my son evaluation and went back on June 27th for result. I truly thought the doctors where going to tell me that he had some attention deficit disorder. It was not the case: he has an autism spectrum disorder.

I did not understand what the doctor was saying to me. All I kept on thinking about was Tony Braxton because I knew about the name autism through an interview she gave on cnn on the LK show and I never thought something like that could ever happen to my child. I asked all the questions that were going through my mind without fully understanding what really the doctors were telling me.

It was 1:00 a.m on June 27 when I woke up, heard the word autism, and that was when I realized a little bit what I was facing.

Please help me raise money to care for my sweet little Ethan. I need to cover medical expenses and I need to hire a full time nanny to be with him when I go to work to provide for him.

Ethan is 30 months old, very smart, and very sweet. Please donate to help me care for him.

Thank you for your generosity

Ethan's mom.
