Lilly is in a government facility awaiting placement in a community, because her allotted time (what’s been approved) is up at the facility.
The problem is that she has been turned down by the only two currently available community choices for her, and she takes that a little personally! But she isn’t sad about it because she wants to stay where she is.
The reality is that this place IS the best place for her, and she LIKES it there. She gets to go places, swim, and have occasional parties. The staff there respect Lilly and treat her with dignity.
Why can’t she stay? Because it’s almost $600 a day, that’s why.
What happens next? I don’t know, except that the State has responsibility for her, and they can’t throw her out.
So for now, I’m smiling. 🙂
Have a safe and happy 4th of July,
