Our goal for Colin is that one day, he will grow up to be an independent young man to the fullest extent possible. Our hopes and dreams for him include some type of college program (there are so many like this one popping up all over the country - and it happens to be Chris' alma mater!), a career, and living on his own. In order for these goals to become a reality, we feel that it's extremely important, even now, to be working so hard on skills that require Colin to be independent. Whenever possible, we encourage him to do things for himself and he is most proud and confident when he is able to do so.
