Mykayla Ink started with a little girl named Kayla. She was born with idiopathic epilepsy and autism. These special conditions although 14years old, she had a mental capacity of a 6 month old child. These circumstances did not stop her from living life to the fullest everyday. Many days and night were spent in hospital rooms with no real resolutions as her medical conditions were literally titled " unknown reason" as well as Autism. She was 14 years old when she passed away. Found her sleep to never wake on November 11. 2011 at 7:24 am. Through the pain and the passion to keep her memory alive Mykayla Ink was born. The inspiration speaks the hardest tribulation we faced as a family trying to maintain financial stability with limited PTO and not making it to FMLA while raising a special need child. It has come time to bridge the gap between finances and being a special kind of parent.
Established in 2011, Mykayla Ink. is a first of its kind company whose primary purpose is to provide advocacy on behalf of families with special needs children.

Statistics on families with special need children:
Most working families are unable to obtain FMLA due to not having enough PTO (paid time off) the first year of employment. This causes employers to view these employees in a skewed vision of their reliability and not their skill set.
FMLA Requirements pertaining to CAREER or Educational Goals
FMLA (family medical leave act) within the place of employment. According to the department of labor, there is a one (1) year requirement of employment or 1250 hours worked prior to obtaining FMLA.
