Haha, I don’t think he’s giving up at all. He’s merely picking and choosing his battles, and right now this battle is best left alone. What more can he say to persuade the mother otherwise than to allow their daughter to show them herself? They don’t realize what William has introduced into their daughter’s life and that happens to be the opportunity to use her mind rather than enabling her disability and coddling her. The dog tags are an object of great importance to her and she has already proven that with a single object of interest she can use it to recall important matters and /remember/.

I believe Sonia will astound her parents by asking to bid William farewell and she will reveal how it was she was able to remember, but I am not optimistic in the parents’ reaction to this. I am only basing my claims on assumptions, but her parents seem to have given up hope of their daughter blending into society as a normal, functioning adult and have taken to raising her as she is just fine. I don’t see them adjusting to the change and the idea that their daughter could continue to strengthen her ability to remember and perhaps even begin to develop a sense of independence or even decide that she wants to do more with her life than live at home with them. They seem the protective type that wants to shield her from the world because she is their special baby.

I hope I am wrong, of course. I hope the parents see their daughter remembering William as a strong foot in the right direction. I hope they want for her to continue strengthening her mind, even if they do happen to move away still from William. I hope they do what is right for their daughter and not what is convenient for them or what makes them feel more secure.

@BritMattison: Those're some really astute observations! :D I don't want to spoil anything but you're right about the first part; pissing off her parents would not get him closer to Sonia. :)

@Zimeta08:
You have quite the thought provoking comic! It’s tastefully realistic and I’ve really been enjoying it.

I cannot help but ponder, though. If the mother is so sure their daughter won’t remember him then what is the harm in letting her see him still? It honestly just sounds like the mother doesn't want William around.

Sounds like a scenario I've seen play out before in real life :( There are parents who accept that their children have disabilities and are supportive of them. However, sometimes they become so comfortable with their child's disability (real or perceived!) that they come to rely on it as a crutch of sorts. In Sonia's case, when her parents act as though there is no hope for her to act as a functioning individual in society, it provides a convenient excuse for them to not have to deal with the real-life issues and hardships that would come along with her trying to "fit in." They're so dead set on it that they don't even give her a chance.

It's sad to think that probably up until William came along, she had no friends growing up, because her parents wanted to keep her isolated and alienated from her peers so that she would never have to feel any discomfort because of her disability. Some parents are very righteous about their children being different- instead of being proud of what their child can accomplish, they let the disability define not only the child, but themselves as well.

Excited to see how this will turn out though! :)
