How many of you are able to work?

I am a liscensed cosmetologist but have yet to actually start working because the cost of childcare is insane. None of my family (or husbands) can handle both of my kids for long periods of time so I am a stay at home mom. We really could uses more income. So I am planning to join scentsy to do something from home. I'm just curious how many people are able to work and afford care for our kiddos, seems impossible to me.

Relocating to southwest

I am wondering if anyone has opinions about Colorado/New Mexico/Arizona areas and the amount of support young adults on the spectrum receive.

Thank you!!

Medi-Cal/private Insurance for Autism
