Does your adult son have any special needs?

Are you a hover mom or does he actually need your help?

Be careful. In my field, I have seen moms trying to be caregivers long after physically able to the point of being a detriment to them and their child. You should make plans for the point when you just can't. As long as most women live, it is likely to happen someday.

Yes-I get the most help now than I ever had -the past year I do-when he was younger not so much-

Hugs to you and your son-do you get a break

We have support with the county-they see my son once a month and we have team meetings every 3 mths
