Here are some pictures of Isla and her grandad Ron.
Nothing spectacular you may think except both have conditions that begin with A, both face the world daily despite their difference to others, both do so with a huge smile and lots of laughter and I’m immensely proud of both.
Ron, my stepdad has Alzheimer’s.
We don’t know how but Isla seems to understand Ron and Ron seems to understand Isla. When they get together they enjoy each other’s company and are a hundred percent themselves. They can just enjoy the moment without a care in the world.
Today Isla wanted nothing more than to just sit with grandad and enjoy finding nemo together.
Who would have ever known that Autism and Alzheimer’s could come together and be so honest, understanding and beautiful.
These two are my heroes x
