Dear Parents of an Adult Child:

So, your child is now grown up. Congratulations! It seems amazing that we have been publishing Future Reflections long enough that the children of some of our readers are now ready to leave home and go out on their own.

This means that most of you will no longer need or want to receive Future Reflections. That’s understandable. I’m glad that you and your child have outgrown Future Reflections. However, the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) still has much to offer your family – most especially your grown-up son or daughter. For example, the NFB publishes a monthly magazine, the Braille Monitor, which addresses the multitude of issues facing blind adults. The Braille Monitor takes over where Future Reflections leaves off. It is the kind of publication that will give your son or daughter the information, encouragement, and resources necessary to meet the problems commonly encountered by blind persons in our society. In your new supportive role, you may also find the Braille Monitor a helpful publication.

To help you and your young adult son or daughter decide if you would like to get the Braille Monitor, the NFB will send either or both of  you some sample issues in the format – large print, tape, or Braille – of your choice. (By the way, a subscription to the Braille Monitor is one of the benefits of membership the NFB. We will be glad to send membership information, too.) To get the free sample issues of the Braille Monitor, and/or find out whom to contact in your area about membership, just fill out and send in the following request form.

We are glad that you allowed us to be a part of your lives, and we wish all the best to you and to your adult son or daughter!

(Mrs.) Barbara Cheadle, Editor
