    My young man is 15 today :bigsmile: At 6' he's almost as tall as his dad -- who'd a thunk? No doubt he'll pass that mark by this time next year.

    I'm happy to say that after six or seven years of bumpy road with him because of his various diagnosis's, things are much improved. Not perfect, but pretty good! I think that's all we can ask at this point. I'm learning to give him a lot more rope this year and he's managing to handle what he's given. Don't know if he'll be ready to apply for his driver's permit in six months when he's eligible, but we'll cross that bridge in June.

    I am very proud of the kind-hearted, handsome and intelligent person he's become!
