It's official- the check is in the mail.

This past spring, I opened a little shop through Cafe Press, JoeyMom's Autism Awareness Bazaar. Today, it actually made money. I have a check for $28 coming my way!

What is $28 to us? With the insurance, it's a session of speech therapy for Joey, or most of an OT session. It is two weeks of school meals. It's 1/3 of my groceries for a week. It's a complete new outfit (minus shoes) for Joey or Andy. It's a month of Preschool Art classes for Andy, or two months of his Wee Time program. It's 3 hours of free time for me, because Andy's babysitter isn't a specially trained respite worker, so she only gets $9 an hour.

Thank you for supporting our family, all you wonderful people who bought t-shirts, buttons, mugs, magnets, bumper stickers, and journals, sporting my autism awareness designs. I promise it is money well-spent.
