      So, my perfectly healthy 8 lb 14 oz (at birth) gets what? His initial problem is done. His “at risk” is lack of $$$$$ for everything, even though both of his parents work

      considered “at risk”, then you can qualify whether you make $200,000
      a year, or $2,000 a year. Make an appointment, ask to go through as
      a nutritional risk IF you think your child(ren) would qualify.

      Some of the risks include low weight, low birth weight, anemia, etc.

      food stamps?

      my husband was in an
      accident last year & was off work for several months, we didn’t
      qualify for any programs offered by the hospital, made too much $$$.
      or so they said.

      hard to make the house payment when you don’t work.

      our gross income together or
      separately puts us above the poverty line, but we certainly are
      not “rolling in the money”. when we went and asked for help, we are
      told “your gross income is too high” and turned down flat.

      > i put the care of my child above the creditors and collection
      agencies. of course, they disagree.

      but then again, none of them
      gives a hoot about my child’s well-being.
      > i do not qualify for wic. mainly because (i feel) that i have a
      husband who works full-time, when the company hasn’t laid him off.
      nobody will tell me anything more than the fact that our gross
      income is too high. i feel like our family is being penalized yet
      again because we both work full-time.

      if i were to quit and we
      moved into the
      car, we would get help right away. “that poor
      child.” since we struggle through and manage most of the time, it’s
      like the “system” says, “oh well.”
