More About Me
Dawn is in the 3rd grade. She is a polite, mature young lady. At
this point, she is doing fine, considering. She gets emotional when
kids make fun of her polarized, wrap-around glasses. She deals with
it better than I, and we both have our good and bad days. She has a
10-year-old sister who helps us through, also. All of the info that
MD Support offers is greatly appreciated. Thank you so
