    Hi everyone,
    It has been awhile since I posted, put an update under the parents emeritus thread.

    Anyway I need your help. A non-profit horse therapy program my difficult child has been in for 6 years (free lessons!) is in a voting contest to win $20,000 from Chase if we stay in the top 200. It ends Monday (tomorrow) evening at midnight. If you could take a moment & vote at the link below it would really help us. You can only vote once & will not receive e-mails. It is through facebook, but I do not think you need a facebook account. This wonderful program in Michigan serves Autistic, chronically ill and other disorders, children with free horse therapy lessons to those that qualify.
    You can become a fan on our facebook page at: Lifehorse at Grand Review Farm to see the work we do, or our website is lifehorse.org. It costs of $39,000 a year to run this program, we have 12 horses and over 40 children we serve. My difficult child & I are volunteers and I am very close with the founder/president. My difficult child's life has truly been enriched by this program. (Read my other post to see more of his personal story).

    We are about an 1.5 hours north of Detroit, pm me if your difficult child could benefit from this program and I will be happy to help you out. Children/young adults are accepted up to 21 years of age. We may have a waiting list soon, as public awareness is growing.

    Many thanks
    Love,
