We, the family, were beginning to wonder if this day would ever come. Ben did receive his driver’s license this week. For almost two years he has taken a driver’s education course twice and his mother paid for him to go back and just practice driving with the instructor. Ben has been uncomfortable driving with no self-confidence. Most teens are eager to start driving, but not Ben. It was at our insistence that he learn to drive. Now he is comfortable driving and even takes the car alone for short trips to the store etc. Ben is now twenty-two years old; so that gives us hope that he will eventually catch up and do things that other people his age are doing.
