For the last 18 years I have been to one doctor after another, been told that she would die, that she would never live on her own. I bought two homes side by side so that she could be independent yet with me. A week ago she moved 14 hours away, to be with a boy she "LOVES", the most age appropriate thing she has ever done. My heart is broken, I'm scared, I'm proud, and the phone calls are not coming fast enough. She is an Aspie, I am a basket case! So brave, and I really think she is in a better situation for her needs, but it kills that I am so far away... Top all that off by the second kid turning 18 in less than a month... if I'm not mom who the heck am I and does she have less wrinkles than mom? Please let there be some bright spot on all this gloom!
