A Great Big Sister on Autism

My brother Eric has Autism, but he is still really really smart! He sings, he plays games, he does gymnastics, and he bugs his sister just like every little brother would!

Hi, My name is Anna Turning. I am 10 years old. My brother Eric has Autism, but he is still really really smart!

He sings, he plays games, he does gymnastics, and he bugs his sister just like every little brother would!

Words cannot even begin to describe how amazing I feel when he gives me a random hug out of nowhere or calls me to come play with him. He jumps on the couch, goes to school, and has friends. I have friends too, but Eric is definitely is my best buddy!

Eric loves to be tickled, and when he laughs, automatically I start laughing too! I pray every day that he will get better, and he is doing really well, but i will never be ashamed if him! I love him too much!

How much do you love this kid? It's amazing how her brother's adversity has made her an even bigger, brighter person.
