Leaving (an Adult) Child for the First Time - NYTimes.com

Leaving (an Adult) Child for the First Time - NYTimes.com

Liane Kupferberg Carter is leaving for Paris this afternoon. Probably. Almost definitely.

It will be the first time she and her husband have left their son for this long. Yes, a 30th anniversary is a reason to celebrate. And no, a week is not a very long time. And, true, Mickey is an adult. But he is an adult with autism. And a seizure disorder. And, as Ms. Carter writes in a guest post today, that can make Paris feel very, very far away.
