My kids world

I am a mom of a two year old and a 9 month old. As of now we are fighting to get back on food stamps and medicaid. Both my kids are in Early Head Start. My son is special needs. He does not talk like other kids. He is very smart. He is in First Steps. He also has asthma. My daughter has a high chance of getting asthma. I am worried that my kids will not get the education and help that they need. Right now my son goes to daycare and we get vouchers but we still have to pay something. My husband is in the National Guard and works full time in another job and is in school part time. We are making ends meat. We also take care of his parents who are disabled. His father has COPD. He has to have medicine. I have asthma, also. My husband and I are trying to support our family but are struggling and we pay taxes, just like everyone else. No we do not get free health care of anything because he is a soldier. Since he is in the National Guard we do not get that type of help. He gets taxed big time and this is what we all get. It is not right at all. I am very worried because are the ones who are going to suffer.
