Boyz II Men singer Shawn Stockman knows how lucky he is.
Stockman, 39, and his wife Sherhonda are the proud parents of 3 children, a toddler daughter and 9 year-old twin sons. Son Micah developed autism.
Shawn and his wife spoke with CNN about the devastating diagnosis, the challenge of finding the best care and making sure the other children feel special too.
Stockman was especially honest about one thing: Money.
Special schools, behaviorists, speech therapists are all extremely expensive.
“We learned through our journey with Micah just how fortunate we were, having money,” he said. “There’s no way a normal couple or a single mom could afford this,” Stockman said.
It’s with this gratitude that the couple decided to launch Micah’s Voice, a non-profit to benefit a family with a child suffering from autism.
The goal of the organization would be to cover the day-to-day costs of caring for and educating an autistic child.
Shawn Stockman and his wife know all too well what a daunting task it all is, even if money weren’t an issue.
