Walking to BART, I listened to this story about a 17-year-old girl who does a lot to take care of her autistic younger brother (in large part because her parents don’t speak English) It was a little awkward, because my eyes teared up. It’s a remarkable story. Listen for what her younger sister has to say.
This was totally one of those NPR “driveway moments” for me. I sat in the car for a couple of minutes after pulling up in front of my house to hear this all the way to the end. I agree with the little sister’s estimation.
