I would like to appeal to readers for compassion and vote for Wood Lane. My daughter is 25 and multi-handicapped. She has developmental delays along with severe hearing impairment. She does not speak and is not toilet trained. Before we discovered Wood Lane, we were lost. I felt there was no place for Bethany. When I would take her to work with me she was disruptive and frustrated. We discovered how dangerous a babysitter could be since she cannot speak to tell us anything. She is very vulnerable. Then, someone told us about Wood Lane. She started out at Wood Lane School and now works at Wood Lane Industries. This is a place for her to belong, be accepted, be productive, make friends, enjoy recreation that is safe and monitored. People say she has "special needs" This does not even begin to describe it. I cannot provide these essential services on my own. I know the economy is bad coupled with wasted government spending-but this is not a place to cut. Please vote yes.
