ane, her husband, and daughter walked to the car without saying a word. This was their first group home visit of the day as they explored options for Taylor. As the last car door closed, Jane heard her daughter burst into tears. “We aren’t sending him there,” the teenager proclaimed! Then she shared her plan: “He needs to stay at home forever with us and when you die, he will move in with me and my husband.” Jane could only smile at the display of love and compassion this girl had for her older brother. While she agreed this wasn’t the place for Taylor, she didn’t think living his entire life with his parents or siblings was right either. There had to be more options…or she would create one.
