Dating someone with a disabled child
Children may be able to get health insurance from SCHIP even if they do not get SSI.
SCHIP provides health insurance to children from working families with incomes too high to get Medicaid, but who cannot afford private health insurance.
Stacey, would you like me to message our Special needs supporter to have a look at your thread and give you some input? I'm sure if you explain the situ someone may help out every so often? I have met so many wonderful people this way who aren't worried about your situation because they have been there or are familiar with it...
i dont know about the respite but can u increase it? Rather than searching for a potential boyfriend, try to increase your circle of general friends and the rest will usually follow........
Hi all, ive been single for over four years now and im really getting to the point that i want to start a new relationship, i have a six year old son with sever autism and no help, im lucky if i get to go out once every six months, so trying to meet a new man is rather hard, my sons dad has no contact with him so its not like i can ask him to look after him for me so i can go out, i get 4 hours a week respite care so again its hard to meet someone new in four hours.
You feel these limitations acutely, compounded by your worries over how a potential 'suitor' will react to your son's special needs.
