"Before I had my son I didn't worry about earthquakes.  Now I have to plan a battery backup for his wheelchair."

"After our first ER visit I learned to have all paperwork ready to go, in the car, and in his backpack."

"Our whole family feels better knowing that there is a plan for everyone, including the cat."
