Same Old, Same Old... ?

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.

Bless her heart indeed. Teresa will sometimes sing that song, "make new friends and keep the old..."

How do I become a new person?

New people can be cool, even when they're old new people.
