My Mother's name is Mia. She recently moved to our town in order to help take care of our 2-year-old daughter, Lotte (and soon, our second baby will be here too!!!). My mom helps us in a million ways. She gives me time to work, she helps with the dishes and she provides her wonderful wisdom and emotional support. She gives my daughter the kind of attention that only a spectacular grandmother can. She is essential to the wellbeing of our family. I truly don't know what we would do without her. When the time comes I want to be able to provide her with the kind of love and care she deserves. Without medicaid, I'm not sure how we will do that. Hopefully, by the time my mom needs care our children will be old enough that we can all pitch in but what if something happens before I can properly care for her? If I still have two small children I don't know what we'll do. We'll need help from Medicaid. Maybe that won't happen but it's not a risk I'm willing to take.
