Meet Brent, a 16-year old boy with autism. Meet his brother Bryson, a 14-year old with developmental delays. Two brothers, both victims of severe neglect early in life, now living in separate foster placements. The confusion and uncertainty of a broken family heightens Brent’s autistic tendencies.
He frequently asks to see his brother.
Teen brothers: removed, without mom, separated. BUT this story has hope:
Thanks to Fostering Great Ideas’ Sib-Link initiative, Brent and Bryson have visited each other on a monthly basis for the past year. Their bond is re-established. Uncertainty is lower. At their last visit, Brent told Bryson not to be sad because they would see each other again real soon.
The future already seems brighter for these kids.
