We Passed: DDS inspected and approved the apartment yesterday. The girls have the go ahead to move in and a set of keys. Ability Beyond Disability expects us tomorrow to complete paper work. The phase of “Adult Independent Living” is officially launched!
Funding and Outfitting Questions: In a brief conversation with our service provider, I was able to ascertain that outfitting the apartment rests in the laps of the parents. Who funds what and what risks loss of funding is a complicated conversation, begun months ago, continued yesterday and hopefully will be finalized with some clarity tomorrow.
Joy: In the meantime, we are joyful. This is an adorable place in a great location near Main Street Ridgefield and both girls are thrilled. A giant patch of that crazy quilt of a future has been completed. Hurrah!
