Rejection

As everyone is school shopping and college touring, I’m trying to figure out how to get around the world to see my husband in the next few weeks.

I was taking my son who will turn 18 this week to a program specifically designed for high functioning young adults. It is a transitional living program. We did the tour and initiation and have committed to this while living situation while my husband and I go work in South Africa.  Even our son thinks it’s a great idea because he doesn’t want to go with us. (seems perfectly normal for an 18yr old)  

2 weeks into this process, I am told by this program that it is probably not a good fit. They don’t know what to do with him.  I freaked out. My public school didn’t know what to do with him. The End all Be all of autism agencies doesn’t know what to do with him. So, here I am, stunned and rejected and hurt. His grade school friends don’t know what to do with him. His uncles don’t know what to do with him. Most of my friends don’t know what to do with him. Shall I go on b/c the list is very long.
