I hate this. I hate that im begging but I'm a mother in pain for her child. My 14 year old son Ethan has ADHD and global learning difficulties. He is a lovely well mannered young man and I am very proud of him and his achievements, even though he struggles everyday. He has always attended mainstream school but as he is taller than his years dictate, people expect a lot from him, all this has led to him being bullied and isolated his whole life. He has a larger than average nose and recessed jaw which makes his teeth out of line. He cannot change his condition but as his mom I wish I could help him and save him any more emotional scars. He wants braces but was declined on the NHS and he wants to have his nose reduced and straightened. I tell him he's beautiful but it's a cruel world and he has been asking for these changes for 3 years or more. He was devastated when he was turned down for braces on the NHS. The treatment will cost over £5000 privately and I simply don't have that money! We are a good family, we are not frivolous with money, we don't go out or have SKY or subscriptions to stuff. We work hard (I joke that we work hard to be this poor!) we just dont earn enough to save anything. Even Ethan has his own paperound and is saving up his £10p/w for his own treatment bless him!! I wish he was confident in his own face but he isn't. I just want my boy happy. What mother doesn't. If you can help it would be so much appreciated and we will always be thankful to you!
