"I had no idea what I was getting into when my son was born." "At first we struggled to get anyone to listen to us.  Then we had to get the school to talk to her doctor, which was really hard." "I had to learn how to talk to my insurance company, spending hours on the phone.  Now I have a care coordinator, which helps so much!"
