I would love to believe that I have had something to do with their amazing bond, but I really didn't. They are as different as two people can be. Their interests are vastly different. They have very little to talk about that they are both genuinely interested in. In fact, very little talking goes on to demonstrate their love for each other. Even when they are furious with each other, the love is there. Even if they are at each other's throats all day long, they can always find something to break the spell. It may be a song that moves both of them to sing (James the men's part and Charlotte the woman's.) We never know but they always go back to loving each other in that amazing sibling way. On my website Well Worth the Journey >>click here<< I have written a pamphlet about being a sibling of a child with special needs >>click here<<.
I always hoped that my children would have a typical sibling relationship and my fondest dreams have come true. They sometimes hate to love each other and sometimes love to hate each other but all is forgiven by morning!!
