I have a special child who is now 22 years old, I am worried for his future, how can I be sure he will be taking care off when I am gone?

Welcome to Mylot jenpink. I am sorry your son is this way. Life is very unkind, but I am sure he is very happy with a Mother like you around who is thinking this way and cares so much for him. I do not really like talking of when you are gone, but for you this is very important to know he will be cared for when you are not around because this will most likely happen one day. Do you not have any family? Would they not care and look out for him? I guess you do not or else you would not be writing this. There is lots of places that will care for him, but you really need to find the goods ones (which is few these days). I feel sorry for you because this must be on your mind alot. I think someone out there will be good enough to look after your son and would be loving and caring like you.

The big problem is financial, would his older siblings look after him when they will get married and have a family of their own?I mean what will be the outcome if their spouses won't accept their youngest sibling. These are the things I worried so much. Right now, I always pray that he become a good boy and can earn his keeps so that he will not be a burden to his older siblings. Thanks for your wonderful comments.

You need to put specific instructions in writing...a will. You need to make sure that all of wishes as far as he is concerned are not left up in the air. Talk to the person or institution that you would like to name as his guardian to make sure your wishes are exact and to the point as far as his well being. You need to this especially in your case because of his situation. However every parent needs to do this.

Don't worry, I'm sure God will not abandon him. However, don't focus about you being gone, instead, pray that you be blessed with a long and healthy life so that you can still watch over your son. No worries, there will be a way ...God is good. There will be good samaritans out there to help you out.
