If you could all send him a good thought in the morning, it would be mucho appreciated. He's coming home for a home visit (nothing new) but we are *not* picking him up (GASP!) at TLP. He's using public transportation (DOUBLE GASP!). His case manager will be with him for this trip, but ... it's a huge step towards independence. He cracked me up last nite, because he wanted to know once he moves back home for good, would I let him go up to the city by himself to meet friends? That's my boy, ahead of himself by 20 steps with absolutely no clue of how to get *up* those 20 steps first, LOL. I told him we needed to deal with the permanent homecoming first.... impulsive child that he is.
