A prayer request (or two)
Tomorrow we meet with folks from our autistic son's school and the Sioux Falls Unified District, continuing our request for residential placement. This is normally funded at age 21, but he's just about 17 and so our request is out of the ordinary.
These meetings are stressful all around. While we are happy with the school and the progress he's made here in the SF district, his needs are 24/7 and border on clinical in ways that my wife and I are becoming unable to provide.
At the same time, the District and pretty much all public services and programs are facing budget cuts and are hard pressed to meet requests like ours.
Please pray for our family and for the school folks as we navigate the needs.
(Note: I usually find something handy in the Book of Common Prayer, but there's really nothing on target for special needs people. The folks at Lent & Beyond are offering a season of prayer for people with neurological disorders.)
