The actual date of the allocation of funding for our daughter’s new life remains elusive due to the labyrinthine nature of bureaucracy. Slated as a “priority age out”, that is, 21 years old, and having lived outside the parental home, with a sufficient level of need, our daughter is in a good position to receive the necessary funds, along with another young lady of comparable abilities and priorities, to set up a two bedroom “affordable” apartment with services and supervision in a nearby town. My daughter calls to ask if she will be moving into her new life this summer. I don’t have the answer yet. Our case manager and service agency coordinator will meet with the powers that be next month. This is like a crazy quilt…I cannot even imagine how all the pieces will fit together.
