The Siblings

PrimaAutism does not affect just the person diagnosed with it, but every member of the family as well. The siblings are innocent bystanders, the unsung heroes who are often caught in the line of fire.  They are witnesses to all the difficulties, but also all the victories, of this journey.  Most of the time, they don’t remain silent witnesses; they rise to the occasion and play an active participation in the recovery process.

siblingsToday we honour and thank them for their fierce protection, their courage and unconditional love.

    All of this is so true no matter what the affliction may be. Brothers and sister are unsung heroes who all too often get lost in the background when in fact they are the forerunners that help others get victory. I am so proud of my nephew and his family who have put their all into triumphing over defeat. Thank you brothers and sisters for your support.

    Thank you for this beautiful tribute. Having a little brother with autism has taught my 11 year old daughter so much. She knows more about probiotics, fish oils, sensory play, high fructose corn syrup, the list can go on and on, than most adults do! lol! The siblings are going to be the next generations therapists, nutritionists, biomed doctors, teachers, etc. My daughter has so much compassion for special needs kids that I know she is going to make a difference in the future.

    This hits home perfectly this week. My son with autism (age 8) just started a new special needs school this week after 5 months of being home, and therapists in the house constantly. I didn’t think my older son (age 10 next month) was really affected until we were at his cub scout meeting this week. The activity the group was doing was a fund-raiser for charity. The boys were to decide on a charity the money would go to. My son wanted to give the money to the local Autism Resource Center. It was a finalist, but lost the group vote to St. Jude’s children’s hospital by one vote. They then were supposed to make posters for the fund raiser. A few minutes later my son was in full blown tears, telling the den leader about how much the autism center needed the money. He was sincerly disappointed, not becuase he lost the vote but becuause they need the money and he really wanted to help. I was so touched by his passion for the cause. We promised him we’d do a larger scale fund raiser that will really make a difference at some point during the year. He even wrote a statement to advocate for his cause. It said ” I chose this charity because my brother is diagnosed with autism and man is that hard for my family, especially him, and I REALLY want him cured and all of the other people that have it.”

    Oh my goodness! I watched this with my 7 year-old daughter, who’s twin brother has autism. She was glued to the computer screen, completely drawn in. I was in tears. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Thank-you for honoring the siblings – for honoring HER!

    To all the siblings, you really know how to love and you teach me how to love.
