Miles Therapy Dog
Hi! We are the Borg family! I am Kristin, my husband is Joe, and my 8 year old son Miles. We are a fun loving military family that loves adventures, Jesus and life. We have traveled around the country quite a bit throughout Joe’s 17 year military career. Our son has been resilient throughout it all as he has lived in 4 states in 8 years.
Although we have had to figure out military life...we’ve had to figure out our life with Autism as well. Miles was diagnosed at the age of 5 with Autism. We had known around the age of 2 that he had developmental disabilities and he was quickly put into preventative services through Early On Education. He started at an early age going to occupational therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy and multiple visits to neurologists, doctors and had multiple genetic tests. We saw psychologists, psychiatrists, and had a brief stint with feeding therapy because he couldn’t eat. Miles had MRI’s and swallow studies and blood draws too many to count. It was overwhelming...but it all came down to one thing. He had Autism.
At 5 we got the diagnosis and we were able to start Applied Behavior Therapy. He started communicating more and decreasing behavior. Unfortunately, Joe deployed for a year to Afghanistan and his behaviors increased. We had gone two steps forward and one step back. Once Joe came home he received orders to go from Ft. Hood, Texas to MacDill Air Force Base, Florida. Two steps forward one step back again. Once we arrived in Florida it took several months for Miles to obtain medical help. We were on waiting lists for all his therapies he had been receiving in Texas. In the meantime, he was put on an anti-psychotic med and almost put into an inpatient facility. It was the most frusturating thing to see as a parent. I knew transitions were hard on him. Big life transitions are hard enough for typical developing children. For Miles, losing all his therapists, the home he knew, the friends he had and the every day routine and consistent life he had was more than he could handle.
After 7 months in Forida we got Miles on track. Then again..another major transition. Joe was deployed for another year to Afghanistan and is currently deployed as I write this. It was another blow in Miles life. He has had a life of constant change and transitions at no fault of his own. Looking forward he will have many life transitions heading to middle school and going through puberty (Lord help us). He will have a hard time making social connections although we think he is a pretty fun and goofy little boy. He will go through change after change. I have prayed through this whole process and it wasn’t until recently I decided we should get Miles an Autism service dog.
We have done research and decided to go with a company called SDWR to obtain a service dog for Miles. They are a company that will fly the dog out to you and train the dog specifically to the child...since Autism is a broad spectrum condition- not all autistics are alike. I have specifically asked for them to focus on training the dog to help Miles through a melt down, elopement, and search and rescue. Miles loves to elope, or run away, when in public. He also has no fear of danger and will dart out in front of cars. We try to keep him safe but he’s like a magnet to danger. A service dog will provide him companionship, safety and social/emotional support. It will also provide a constant in his life when he has so many transitions. We greatly appreciate anyone willing to pray for us to see this dream of ours come to life. Any donation to the cause will mean so much to our family as we are seeking to raise funds to cover the cost of the service dog.
Thank you and Much Love,
The Borg Family
