We are your neighbors, your sisters, your daughters, and your best friends.
We are the mothers of amazing, resilient, determined, and beautiful children. Children with needs that may differ from those of your own children.
We know -- because of our children -- that anything is possible.
We have seen the positive effects of prayer and hope and hard work.
We believe in in the power of PT, OT, DT, and Speech services.
We have cried at diagnoses and celebrated inchstones.
We have felt the pain of isolation. And we have experienced the beauty of finding our "village."
We know all too well that sometimes what is worth having is undeniably worth fighting for.
We are the voices of the silenced, the unseen, and the ignored.
And that's why, we are fighting this battle -- not just for our own children, but for those children yet to come. We are fighting to ensure that all children will have access to the services they need in order to reach their full potential. We are fighting for a better and brighter future.
We are Early Intervention Moms.
We are in this together.
And Governor Rauner, we don't give up.
We are strong women.
