My daughter holds a CCC+ waiver. She is 18 months old and has Lissencephaly, a fatal neurological condition. I am her paid caregiver. My daughter requires a level of nuanced care that another caregiver paid at the measly rate the state provides would be unable to provide. Because of my daughter’s complex medical needs, I have been forced to stay at home. If you care for our most vulnerable children, you will vote to continue to allow parents as caregivers. I invite you to come to my home to see the level of care my daughter needs and deserves. No one cares for our Virginia’s children better than their parents. 

I will be following up with a series of phone calls and emails do you understand the importance of your vote and the impact the wrong decision can make
