My nephew Jon is age 14 and diagnosed with aspergers since age 6. His mother just passed way this January. She was bipolar and they did not have a very strong relationship. So he was living with my mother for the last 4 year. I am worried about his future. My mother is not well and may not be able to take care of him. I am his only relative. His father was never involved. I love and care for this boy, but my husband and I are so scared about his interactions with our 12 yr. old son. I work full time and worry about them being alone together after school or summer break. Jon is very controlling and is very physical with my son(eg. pinching, hitting,slapping). Also Jon has inappropriatly touched him several times(not recently, about 2 years ago)and talks about sex and other inappropriate stuff. They use to spend alot of time together, but I have limited their interactions since we learned of the fondling incidents. My son is very quiet and shy and will sometimes hide from Jon when he comes over. Am I over reacting? I don't want him to go to foster care. My husband and son don't think he should stay with us. I cry about this almost every day. Please help with any advice!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
