We have found a better way forward for our son Aaron (27, ASD) to live independently from us, in a supportive community offering meaningful employment and social engagement.
When our children were young - with or without special needs, for the most part we had the luxury of not worrying about the day to day lives of our parents. Now as we ourselves enter our Second Middle Age, in many cases our special needs children need us now more than ever, with less or a roadmap to successful parenting.* If we are lucky, we find ourselves playing the role of parent to our own mothers and fathers.
Sometimes the best blogging possible is no blogging.
