I know how the title sounds but this is a very real question and very serious question, so please don’t take offense.
So many of us (special needs parents) have an absolute fear of the future. We worry day and night about what will happen to our special needs children when we are gone.
It occurred to me the other day that while no parent, ever wants to outlive their children, this may not always hold true for those of us with kids that cannot survive on their own.
So if I were to say that I hoped to outlive some or all of my special needs kids because I don’t think they would have anyone to care for them after I’m gone, does that make me a selfish person or bad parent?
Have any of you though about this before? What are your thoughts?
