We got a free cane for Nellie via the Early Explorers program. You not only get a free cane (with the name of the person attached whose donations made it possible - I said a little prayer for them) but you get this book, a special copy of Future Reflections magazine on mobility, and a DVD. We also bought some purple duck tape for embellishments.
And speaking of waiting USCIS has said we are APPROVED (they just need one more little piece of paper - which they are getting!!). AND the Bulgarian government has scheduled an IAC meeting which is the meeting we need to have happen to be invited to travel. On our way!!!
