The Baby is 18!
I can't believe my son is 18 today. He came along while I was still working on my bachelor's degree, was unmarried, and rather unfocused as to how my life was going. Many people said - and some still do - that I should not have had him. Too much responsibility, too much money, too much time and effort - all reasons why I should not have a baby at 22, before finishing school and getting married. There was never a question as to whether I would have him or not - there was a reason - or many - why he was sent my way when he was, and while it has not been an easy ride, especially with the 'autism' effect, I can't imagine my life without him.
