最后一段居然漏了……现在补回来


And then there’s the future. Edmund will likely never have a job that pays above minimum wage, if that. So we will support him for our lives, and provide for his support after we are gone. Our typical children will (we hope!) go out and earn their own living, but Edmund will always be our financial responsibility. He will always need supervision (either from us or paid for by us). He will always need medical equipment.

然后就是关于未来,埃德蒙可能永远不会找到一份高于最低工资的工作。所以我们为他提供帮助,直到我们老去。我们健康的孩子们将会出去赚取属于他们的生活(我们希望如此!),但埃德蒙永远是我们的财务责任。他永远需要看护(不管是我们做还是请人来做),他总是需要医疗设备。


We have 529 tax-deferred accounts set up for the education of our other two children. Infuriatingly, there is no such account to save for people who will not go to college. If Edmund has greater than $2,000 in assets to his name, he will not qualify for SSI benefits or Medicaid. The cost of support and health care and insurance without SSI or Medicaid is prohibitive even for very wealthy families. There are less-straightforward ways to provide for his future, and we do. It’s frustrating, however, that there is a disincentive to save for his future.

我们为另外两个孩子的教育建立了529延税帐户。令人愤怒的是,建立这种账户的人将无法去上大学。如果埃德蒙名下有多于2000美金的资产,他将没有资格获得SSI福利或医疗补助。即使是很富裕的家庭,没有SSI或医疗补助的支援的话,医疗保健和保险的花费都难以承担。也有不太直接的方式在未来为他提供帮助,我们会这么做。然而,还有一件令人沮丧的事,他的未来有一个不利因素。



More than $2.5 million. When you think about it, Edmund is the equivalent of a ginormous beach house in the Hamptons that we’re paying off for the rest of our lives. I count myself beyond lucky to have him, who is so loving and kind and has taught me so much about the nature of love and suffering and happiness. I wouldn’t trade him for any typical kid. Alas, I also count myself quite a bit poorer.

超过250W美金。你想想看,埃德蒙相当于我们在后半生买下汉普顿的一栋海滨别墅。但我觉得自己能得到他是极其幸运的,他是如此的可爱、善良,教会了我这么多关于爱情和痛苦和快乐的本质。
