"Why do you think Brian will be living with you?"
"Because of his autism. If he still has it as a grown-up I want him to live with me so I can take care of him."
Stick a dagger through my heart.
"Corbin, I love that you love your brother like that but I want nothing more than for you to live your own life and fill your own dreams when you're a grown-up."
"Mom, that is what I want. Brian's autism makes him so much of a wonko (okay, though I was almost in tears that line made me want to giggle) that I'll worry about him. I want to take care of him!"
No matter how hard it is for Corbin to have a sibling with autism- and I'm not down-playing it- I know it's hard- he loves that brother of his so immensely. There's a bond there that is undeniably strong.
