I need a writing therapy session. Kevin just had his 10th birthday. His birthdays seem to cause me to worry about his future. I am sure all parents have some degree of protectiveness about their kids as they enter each stage of life even into adulthood. But I would also imagine most special needs parents, especially if they are an only child, have a much higher degree of “oh my gosh what’s going to happen to him after we are gone” syndrome. Intellectually, I know that it is nonproductive to worry about the future. And with my faith in God, I know that all will be well. But I still can’t help having these feelings as I see another year go by.
