When in the hell did this happen??? And who told my son he was allowed to grow up and become an adult? When you first give birth to your child you imagine what they are going to grow up to be like, you pray they have great lives and that they are happy and healthy. The thought of them being adults seem just so far off that you can’t really believe that they will one day be an adult. This past weekend my tiny little bundle of energy turned 18, and he’s not so tiny anymore. He will be graduating High School in a month and I’m filled with so many emotions. Where as I’m grateful that he survived to become an adult, I’m saddened at the thought that his childhood years are over. I’m filled with so many worries and concerns for his future. Did I arm him with enough education and common sense that he will be able to make his way and make right choices in life? Will he be successful at his dreams? As you know ( if you follow my blog) my son is Autistic (actually Aspergers but they don’t call it that anymore) so I worry if he will be able to fully support himself and have a life that I have hoped for for him. A wife, children, a career.
I really never imagined how hard this would be. I look at him and I can still see that adorable little face that everyone loved so much.. He had girlfriends everywhere he went.
