Catherine Miller shares her sibling experience in her new book, Precisely John: A Journey of Autism, Love, Laughter, and Faith. Of her story, Catherine says: “My older brother was on the autism spectrum, although we didn’t know that until he was in his thirties. He passed away in 2007 at age 52. We were raised in the 1960’s and 70’s, which was before Special Education classes and mainstream discussions about people with disabilities. Within a few years following his death I found myself writing about him – numerous situations from our childhood and lives, mainly about the huge impact he had on me and my life. Stemming from this relationship I created a career working in the Human Services field for the past 35 years. I had not seen literature written by siblings, talking about what it can be to grow up with a person with a disability. So I decided to publish our story, which just came out on Amazon. My hope is our story rings true to others, and perhaps offers some joy, hope, and knowledge that you really are not alone for others.”
