This time, I’m in front of one of the local Boys and Girls club, it’s after dinner time, it’s cold and I didn’t bring my book.
Emily is in there with the lady from Community Living and her intern.
If it goes well tonight, this could be another recurring volunteer gig for my girl so I’m sitting here for what could be 3 hours…
Here’s to hoping she can have support worker hours approved to help with this as I can’t imagine I would enjoy volunteering here to help her.
How I wish I could be a fly on the wall to see how the kids are reacting to her, if they are nice to her, if she fits in.
I hate not being with her and provide her a buffer just in case but I know I have to give her room to learn and grow…
This is a crazy roller coaster ride my friends and here I thought it would get easier once she would be an adult.
Good to read, that she is on her own way to independence, as good as possible. It shows, that you have done right with her and that she is ready now 🙂
Thank you! I know she is ready and I’m working hard on being ready too.
I think, it is mostly difficult for the parents, no matter where our kids are in their lives.
Breathe! She’s doing what you’d always hoped she would do, and maybe even wondered if she could. Taking her independence. This is a good thing, no? 😊
Trust me when I say “I’m breathing, or at least learning to” 😊 it’s an amazing thing to see her willingness to try these things without me and it’s terrifying too which is why I will be near by if she needs until she’s comfortable and knows her way around this new place and knows the people there.
That’s the hard part, isn’t it? Letting go a bit. But, it’s what we always hope for them. It’s quite the dichotomy. 😃
Tu est tellement un bon model pour elle. Lache pas!
T’es fine! J’essaie juste de l’aider à trouver ses passions!
