Tracey, i've read your post today...and a few before it. It strikes me that the pain of giving up the dream you have worked so hard for, for Robbie must be horribly sad and painful.

it seems like such a small dream, that your son graduate from high school. But it seems that isn't how he is made. maybe moving in the direction of what he is made for will help buffer some of that pain.

when it comes to what will happen to him in the distant future, you can plan for it of course, but there are way too many unknowns between now and then.

now that the high school graduation is off the table, maybe some of the other things will be able to be considered.

i can't imagine your pain but have had a friend since her son was an infant. he is now 16. unable to talk. fortunatlely able to walk. about 18 mon. old mentally. the walk along the way has been painful to say the least. (think of an 18 mon. old as a short adult and all he can get into when he is home.) watching over time as he was diagnosed, etc. so sad. so eye-opening to us as a church as we learned to minister to J and his family. i have gotten just a taste of her pain.

you have my prayers as you continue to persevere and encourage robbie in what he can do. btw, i'm your neighbor at fmf.
