This is a super important episode for all families. One of our favorite guests, Debbie Roppolo, returns to tell us about her touching book "He's My Borther." The diagnosis of autism devastates every member of a family, sometimes impacting siblings the hardest. Based on her own family's experience with autism the book tells the story of twelve year-old Jonathan Roper. Forced to move away from everything that he's familiar so that his younger brother Cameron can get better services, Jonathan feels alone and forgotten. Can he overcome his feelings of resentment and sadness, or will Cameron's autism drive a wedge between the brothers that can't be overcome? This book also contains answers to frequently asked questions, a resource page, and more.
