Eve of empowerment

It is the eve of the guardianship hearing.  Tomorrow I will be standing before a judge in a court of law to determine that my adult girl should have her rights to decisions of medical, financial and housing handed over to me.

Such a different path than the one that most parents take.  Most parents are preparing their children to make these same decisions for themselves–empowering their children.  In a sense I am dis-empowering my girl, yet with this decision I am ensuring that she be protected, which will in a strange way , be incredibly empowering for her.
