As the mom of a young adult on the autism spectrum, I can relate to your journey. Supporting our kids changes shape as they grow up and some have mainstream achievements like driving or holding a job. My son lives in his own apartment and owns two kittens. He even lives in a different state. But we are involved daily, even hourly in supporting him. He texts throughout the day about his concerns about his kittens, how to cook dinner, how to communicate at work and also, his feelings of isolation and depression. We have two-hour dinners (on Zoom) on Wednesdays and Sundays. The support he needs is a shadow of what he needed as a kid, and at the same time, we are monitoring his safety and comfort 24-7.
