    It's finally gone through. Andrew will be moving into an apartment with Integrated Living Services on Jun 8. It's a two bedroom apartment, he will have one roommate who is higher functioning than he is. Now for the hard part. The apartment is completely unfurnished. No dishes, towels or anything. Fortunately I have friends and family and I think among us we will find some decent furnishings for the place. I'm so excited. He'll have 24/7 awake staff and 2 on 1 is great odds. This is the best, I'm just praying now that it all works out. Oh Happy Day......

    free at last, free at last, free at last...

    Go through Craigslist, in the free section. Also put an ad in there under WANTED. You'll get that place furnished in no time.
    And congrats!

    Andrew is my 23 year old, low function, incontinent, autistic son. And I'm thrilled about it because now he's going to get the help he needs. Daddy and I are getting on in years and our health is failing. My husband has Parkinsons, and I have arthritis.

    I am glad things are working out for Andrew.

    Goodwill and Salvation army sell furniture.
