Hi, friends! We are trying to raise some funds to buy our sweet Miles boy something called a Kinderpack by Kindercarry. They make a carrier in a preschool size that allows you to comfortably, securely, and safely carry your kiddos up to 50 lbs! I feel this would be a huge asset for Miles, and allow us to involve him more in the world around us and eliminate the risks that we would face without one. Miles can walk, but he is very clumsy. He also has no fear of cars or strangers or any sense of danger. He doesn't process sounds correctly, so us yelling his name or a car horn or anything used as an auditory warning doesn't even register. Miles also lays on the floor or ground, no matter where we are, when he gets upset or overwhelmed. He is getting so strong, that he can just about escape our grasp and he will run away. All of this is very typical of a child with ASD, but nonetheless difficult. 

These carriers are pretty hard to find, as only a few are available for sale new each week and they sell out in minutes. I have found one for sale in good used condition, so we would love to be able to purchase it for Miles, but they don't stay for sale long! And since I have quit working to dedicate my time to giving Miles the best care I can, it would take us a while to recover from a purchase like this. 

We appreciate everything everyone has done for us in helping Miles. We feel this is step that will help us do more to insure his success. :) 

With much love,

The Schievelbeins
