Not Enough Left of This One

April 11 2019:

She must have 3 bookmarks marking her spot. And they must be the same 3 bookmarks. No substitutions should one of the three get “lost”. And. She uses them until they cannot be taped and repaired any more!

She says, “I don’t think there’s enough left of this one to use as a bookmark.” Hallelujah!!! After years one of the 3 gets replaced!! 🤣🤪😂💙📚…. This post has been approved by Lillian.

“My Review of Where Would You Fly?: and Other Magical Stories Author Lillian Darnell

Where Would You Fly? and Other Magical Stories is a truly unique and magical read. I read this book in one night because the fairies, animal stories and mindfulness advice were so beautiful and provided a deep insight into how one very talented young lady sees the world. Some of the stories are very healing too. I loved how Lillian took animals ….”

The wonderful person who made this Psychedelic Dachshund quilt is head over heals for Lillian’s Rainbow of Emotions.

She is itching to quilt a Psychedelic Rainbow of Emotions, about 3X3 in size. Anyone interested in brightening one of your walls with a Psychedelic Rainbow of Emotions? xoxo

Another Fear Walked Into – The Shower

November 17 2018:

She took a shower last night! At 17 years old, she finally leaned into her worries and fears of taking a shower. Yes! A wonderful and new first for Lillian with a bit of help from grandma Patty!

Thank goodness that in The Romano Duo’s new place, they’ve got one of those extra large walk in showers. Lots of room to stay away from the wrath of the shower head! HA! YAY Lillian!!

Decisions As We Approach Lillian Darnell Reaching 18 Years of Age – Nevada

September 30 2018:

Friends with special needs adult children … Lillian is 17 years old now and it’s time to decide about guardianship. I’ll need to decide whether to do a full guardianship, or just financial, or just medical or both or alternatives.

**Nevada friends have shared about Supported Decision making – About to educate myself on that!!** So … input on any and all routes friends have gone is welcome! Lillian is capable of making decisions. Although, she has a difficult time with some decisions; with much anxiety.

Would you mind sharing your thoughts and experiences with this? I’m interested in hearing from all, especially friends in the state of Nevada since state laws can be different.

Did you have your local Regional Center (state organization that provides services for special needs kids) to assist with this by giving you information and/or conducting a psychological evaluation?

Thank you so very much for your input!! xoxo

Lillian is not medically fragile and we hardly ever go to the doctor. She hasn’t been in years. Her difficulties are her ability to articulate her speech, and emotional and mental issues. She does have difficulty making some decisions. She almost always ask for my input; which I give to her. She still has some difficulties after that, yet, I usually will try a bit more to get her to make the decision. If she’s not able to do it, I’ll make the decision for her (which, sometimes will snap her into being firm with her own decision)!

Where Would You Fly at Reno Barnes & Noble

October 19 2018:

On Saturday, Nov 10th, Lillian and I will be at the Reno Barnes & Noble for a “Where Would You Fly” book signing from 11-5. We’d love to see you there!! xoxo
