About Us

Welcome to the Brookston family blog. We'll post updates here on what's going on in our part of the world, and especially with our son, Porter, who has been diagnosed with some form of autism. Our hope is that this blog will help us deal with all the issues we'll be facing and keep our friends and family informed as well.

Sarah’s family has been taking a trip down the Russian River with several other families over the last weekend in July for several decades. While we couldn’t make the trip this year, we did stop by on Saturday to let everyone see Alice.

Our little family just got a little bigger. Introducing Alice JoAnna Brookston, born July 7, 2004. JoAnna for Jay’s late mother, JoAnn, and Alice for Alice Paul, a woman who helped secure women’s right to vote in the 1920’s through protests on the White House lawn and a hunger strike while in jail for those protests. Here is a short biography of her.
