Hello, We are a family with a difficult fate in Estonia. My name is Kertu Kirsipuu and I have epilepsy.For the last three years I have been raising a daughter with paralysis of four limbs,slight brain damage and heart condition. Unfortunately, Jete is not talking at the moment,not walking,not standing,not sitting,but most of the time is lying down. According to doctors, his mental side is fine, he has all the emotions and expressions that are appropriate for an ordinary child of her age, but the physical side is very weak, although much better than before.Due to my health and taking care of Jete, I am not able to return to work. Jete, like me, needs round-the-clock surveillance for her epilepsy. I do not anticipate seizures and they always hit me suddenly and mostly from bedtime and need immediate intervention. We are currently living with my parents in a rental house, the contract of which will soon expire. In this context, we have begun to think about buying our own home. Unfortunately, it has not been purchased so far due to lack of financial resources. It is impossible for me and Jete to live alone, and that is why we live with my parents, who help and support me in every way, both materially and emotionally. Since a large part of my parents' income is spent on Jete treatment, it is also very difficult for them to get a bigger home for us. A Prayer to All of You - Could You Help Us,who survived a lot of suffering but otherwise very nice family in every sense,Get a Home? We would need our very own home, which would accommodate all of Jete's aids, and Jete should definitely have his own practice room where he could be treated by physiotherapists and other specialists in the future, if necessary. Dealing with Jete takes all my and Jete's grandmother's free time:various therapies to take us to, in addition to activities we do at home, therapies via the Internet, massages, etc. Our so-called working days are sometimes 16 hours or longer, it all depends on how good the Jete is at the moment. We also have a facebook blog, i will add link to the letter,and a section of our family you can watch on Estonian TV. :)
We sincerely hope you can help us.
