Frustrating Morning, and a plea for help

Speech therapy was very frustrating this morning. Tristan has reached a serious plateau where he is all over the place, running around like a crazy person, not focusing. This has been happening with increasing frequency.

His therapists have had a meeting of the minds and have decided the best course of action is to remove all single, small toys from his play area and replace it with a play structure that offers the ability to climb and jump and get his abundance of energy out. He craves constant movement and small toys are presenting a huge challenge to him advancing in his therapy.

The problem with this is play structures are extremely expensive. Between the cost of his therapy (not all of which is covered by insurance) and fuel/transportation costs of getting to therapy which has skyrocketed, we simply cannot afford to provide such a structure for Tristan.

I created a gofundme page in the hopes we can raise enough money to provide this much needed piece of equipment for Tristan. Anyone who knows me knows how much I absolutely abhor asking for help or a handout, but this is my kiddo and he needs this. So I'm stuffing my pride and asking for help. Any help is appreciated more than words could express, even if it's just sharing the link.
