A sight for sore eyes can be a person or a place.
For Bil's journey to independence as someone with a developmental disability, it may be an apartment he may be looking at next week. We don't know for sure if he will be able to view it but he will definitely interview for it. He's one of several candidates for the opening.
It's in the village where he and his mother now live. He would have a roommate but his own bedroom.
It would be the first time he's ever lived apart from his mother.
For us, his siblings and in laws, it's a sight for sore eyes because he has been on a housing list for so many years. It's taken so much work to arrive at this time, this place. It will mean that Bil has a place to live, a shelter, a room to call his own, even if something happens to his mother. And, the time is fast approaching where his mother (who wants him with her) will no longer be able to care for herself without outside help.
By the end of this week, we will know more. Right now, they are giving us few details.
But we hope the wait is almost over.
