Leaving (an Adult) Child for the First Time -

Leaving (an Adult) Child for the First Time -

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.
