Public comment direct care

I am a single mother of 3 children, a 16 yr old son, 12 yr old son, and a 6yr old daughter. I am the direct caregiver of my daughter who was born with Down Syndrome. I am the provider for my children and I. With that being said taking this benefit away would be detrimental for not only my family but I'm sure many families who are in similar situations.  We see many specialists and therapists along with working a full time job.  This change would host such an extreme negative impact in more ways than you understand. Please don't take this  away.
