The last two years have been incredibly hard for our family, but one aspect of it that I rarely talk about is the financial strain and stress we’ve been under…That is one reason why we are so grateful that the American Rescue Plan was passed. Its expanded and advanced Child Tax Credit has brought some much needed relief to our family. It has unburdened us of the stress we’ve been under these last couple of years by giving us access to those funds. And given the amount of stress we’ve all been under, that is something to celebrate.
