It can be a long and confusing journey for the parents and siblings to fully understand how autism affects a loved one.


It can be a long and confusing journey for the parents and siblings to fully understand how autism affects a loved one. With love, patience and empathy, you can work through the challenges day-by-day. Eventually, you learn to love both the positive and more difficult aspects of autism.

This blog will be kept up-to-date by Mark with input from our family, support staff and Adrian himself. It will help us to reach a deeper understanding of Adrian’s world. We have all been reminded just how differently the world appears to him. Mark wants to share the blog with others in the hope that they will be inspired to do the same for their brother, sister or child. This blog will be a valuable tool for people who support Adrian daily. Mark plans to update the blog as often as possible so it will continue to be an accurate depiction of him. I am very proud of my three children. I would like to thank them for working together to create this blog.
