We had a meeting today with Sonics case worker and team members,and Sonic and Sonic no longer needs a guardian. I am the guardian he no longer needs. Not that i ever told him what to do. He is making good decisions, learned how to access his own medical care, is getting high marks at both his jobs and is living independently. I felt like crying, I am so proud. One day he wont need a payee either. We had a mini celebration and i bumbled a mommy gush about how proud i am of him and the caring, kind, capable young man who is my son. How he is a hero and so loved. I even hugged him. He said "Mom!" With horror and we all laughed, him too. If Sonic with autism can come this far so can your adult kids. Just trust that they can and dont be afraid to use supports. They may well outgrow needing the supports. I am grateful today and so full of love for a young man who i was told would never be independent.
