FWIW, I understand how maddening and wrong it feels to have to document all the expenses for your child. We didn’t have to file anything with courts, but Social Security meant keeping receipts “in case” we were ever audited, to make sure I was using the money for Anna as intended (and not saving it, which meant it would have to be repaid). For 17 years it was an aggravating splinter reminding me how our situation wasn’t normal. I didn’t know what a relief it would be once the requirement was lifted when she turned 18 and started getting the payments herself.

Such a weird way to have to parent — and that’s without all the hardships and stress like what you and Nick face daily. Sending you a giant hug in this weird transition. ❤️❤️
