My Daughter is Moving Out

About a year ago, my oldest daughter met the love of her life. A short time later, he was living here. Next Friday, they will be moving into an apartment together. Yeah! Sorry, but I am ready for my kids to be grown ups. She is almost 26 and it is time.

Now her 22 year old brother just needs to find employment that is not dependent on his dad for construction jobs. It is really tough for kids (young adults) to find work when they have a learning disability. It seems that most places want you to do the online applications and if they have those psychological questions - forget it. I feel that if he could met with someone and talk to them, it would help.
