Six months of waiting, rejection, re-application, waiting, calling and FINALLY
OUR DISABILITY PARKING PASS HAS ARRIVED!!!
<insert happy dance here>
No longer must I linger momentarily in front of those luxuriously spaced disabled parking spots only to drive on past and struggle to unload Lauren in a cramped amount of space.
I’m very happy to have the pass, but very disappointed in the process, time and frustration that was involved in getting one. Believe me when I say that they don’t make it easy. We had filled out tedious forms including full medical information, only to receive a rejection letter months later. The rejection letter was the most annoying part of the whole process – there was no request for additional information, simply a no based on the fact that “our daughter’s limitation may be confused with inabilities due to her age”. What is one to take from such a statement other that they were telling me that my daughter is too young to walk, and that I’m only confused. Oh brother! Someone is getting paid a nice salary to ignore paperwork and send out thoughtless and insulting letters.
And that’s what I have to say about that!
Here are a couple of cute pictures of Lauren from this week!
