Glad to hear everything is lining up nicely.

Respite is "essentially" a baby sitting service, to allow you to take some time off for yourself. It's usually provided by some local office, and is for a half-day or an evening.

My wife and I were offered the service by the local MHMRA (Mental Health, Mental Retardation Administration) for her son, but we never used it.
