Now, wait just a minute.
This can’t be right.
OK, I’ve known this day was coming.
But, there must be some mistake.
Sure, I’ve been talking with lots of people in preparation for this day, arranging for things like “legal guardianship” and “transition” and “adult services.”
This week, we will even mark the occasion with some small family gatherings and celebrations with friends at school.
But I’m still not sure I believe it.
I mean, c’mon!
Does this boy look 18 to you???
Happy Birthday, kiddo.
Can’t wait to see where you are headed.
