I can’t have more than fifteen hundred dollars in my bank according to the State or I will not receive care.  However, the State doesn’t provide adequate care for its disabled citizens.  Sometimes I don’t have clean clothes to wear or supplies to keep my body clean.  I get a shower when my attendants feel like it.  This is how we treat people with disabilities.

Dear Mom,

It’s conference time.  Two books are ready to go, Mom!  Tina has the first one now!  Just sent it this morning at five am!  The second manuscript is being proofread and I’m pitching it at the conference.  It’s about you, Eagle River, my family and the dream.  The dream is very close to becoming a reality.  This was your dream for me.  The English family has believed in the dream!  Oh, Mom, I’m exhausted.  Tina is coming for lunch at my house.  Everything is so different.  I’m independent, Mom.  My family is back in my life, including Sue!  It’s coming together meeting women and dating!  Amber and Dave said that I can do this.  And I have!  It’s time to rest for a couple of days before going out in the world.  The dream is real because of you.  Thank you, Mom!  Your soon to be New York author

It’s April!  My favorite month of the year.  Writing conference time.  I’m going back “home” to see my agent, see friends and pitch my adult manuscript to agents.  I can’t wait to go.
