right now adam is six yrs old and making real progress interacting with other kids if you take into consideration that just 6 months ago he did not interact with other kids at all. adam is an only child and spends the majority of his time with us unless he is in school. my big concern is how is adam suppose to improve his social skills and make friends while he can barely talk? the people that spend alot of time with him understand him ok, and if we do not understand him we work with him to figure out what he is saying, but we all know most kids will not take the time to do that. well, my oldest grand daughter Daizie is the exception, she is 6 yrs old too and adores adam and actually listens to him when he talks :) is speech delayed literal? meaning, will he eventually talk better or will it always be hard to understand him? i work with him all day every day on his words and he is showing improvement, but he is still very hard to understand. i know adam wants to play with other kids and i truly believe he feels left out in alot of things but what do i do to help him with that? adam is also very immature for his age and i know other kids will not be very accepting of that, a neighbor boy stopped by one day and tried to play with adam but after about 15 minutes he figured out that adam was different and went home and the other neighbor kids ignore him. when his half sister was living here she played with all the other kids and i wonder what she and her mother told the other kids to make them look at adam the way they do :(

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? 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...
