When Covid-19 started, my son’s IRA was on lock down. We were given a choice to leave him or bring him home. So, we chose to keep him in his IRA, where he was comfortable and better protected from the virus. We had no idea how long this would last.
After a few weeks, we setup his tablet to video chat via Facebook Messenger. My son does not like to talk on the phone but with the video he was in 7th heaven. The fact that he could not only talk to us, but also see us made a huge difference. Soon his siblings were on the calls too and could actually see and talk with him. Our son can now engage with more often with more of his family in a way he never could before. We are grateful for this COVID ‘silver lining’.
