Today didn't have the greatest start. I had an 8am meeting with some parents who are concerned about the vocational future of their adult child with a disability. Such meetings don't happen that often, and are part of what I do. This particular one wasn't really that bad, except for the absurdly early timing. The parents are in a bit of denial about their daughter's abilities, but they were polite and understanding as I outlined options and what my agency would and would not do. They even agreed the current job is a "good fit", as far as it goes.
Mom: [Name of Assisted Living Facility] is not a bad match for "Linda". She likes working with old people."Linda": I like new people, too!
Bless her heart.
