    I am the primary caretaker for my child who was a victim of a crime in 06′ that left him blind and chronically disabled. I have been able to hold off the student loan wolves through deferments. Now, the well runs dry and they are thirsty again.
    Are there forgiveness programs for caretakers?

    Hi,
    I was browsing through your blog parentstudentloans.wordpress.com and found very interesting contents on money and finance which are pretty informative. I was hoping I could write a guest post on your blog with an article related to your blog, I believe this will be of interest to your readers.
    The article will be entirely unique, written just for your blog and will not be posted elsewhere. I hope I can produce informative and viscid content for you. If you’re interested in this idea, please get back to me.
    Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

    Best,
    Pablo
