The Next Chapter

Something very exciting is happening in Russell’s life! He has been accepted into a program called Stepping Out. It is the opportunity to live on his own for a week to see what skills he still needs before he moves out for good some day. His stay will be supported by Community Living. They will help him shop, cook, clean, catch his bus, etc., and then write a report at the end of the week what areas need work. He’s super excited for the prospect. His first night away is June 17 — I had to put them off until after my two trips away so I didn’t overwhelm myself mentally.

I’ll post more when I have more details. I need to ask a few questions that I didn’t think of when I was on the phone.
