A Friend's Future

I believe I have mentioned that one of my son's friends has Aspergers Syndrome.

This friend graduated high school last year, and went out of town to college in a special one year program.  He should be graduating in the next week or so.

Then what?

That will be very interesting to see.  Of course, I can not compare him at all to Bil.  They are two different people, operating at two different levels.  I know the "friend" may be able to be independent (time will tell on that):  as for Bil, we agree, and his Medicaid Service Coordinator, agree, that will never be possible.

This friend is very mechanical and hopes to make his living in plumbing or a similar trade.  I wish him the best of luck.

I still can't help but be a little wistful, though, for "what may have been"....if Bil had been born into a different age, a different world.
