What's New with Loren: A Life Update

A quick update from the Morell/Taggart family per Justin Morell: 


"This past summer and fall have been a whirlwind.  As of August, 2023, Loren has been living at a residential facility outside of Philadelphia.  This has been both helpful and very difficult for all of us.  The people at the residence and his new school are very kind and Loren seems to like them very much.  They are able to help monitor his medications and keep him safe.  But we also do miss having Loren at home.  We felt fortunate that during this challenging transition, we were able to share in all the positive energy around the premiere of All Without Words Live.  


Still, it’s very hard for Jennifer and I to be away from Loren and wonder how he feels in this new environment, especially because he can’t tell us whether he is comfortable or scared.  We visit him often and bring him home for weekends when we can.  We want Loren to be able to come home and are still on a wait list for services that can be done in our house, but we still do not know when this might happen.  Meanwhile, we are working to make modifications to our house so that Loren has more of his own living space.  He is now 19 years old, which makes him an adult, and we want him to have something of his own home like any adult might want.  All of this, like everything in our lives, is a work in progress."
