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.

About Me

I was born in Oakland, California in 2001, the oldest son of J and Sarah. My mother is an attorney and my dad stays home to take care of me. We moved to San Rafael in 2003. I took my time with talking and last year, they discovered I was autistic. Now I go to a special school, where I’ve been making a lot of progress. I also have tutors and go to occupational therapy for sensory integration issues. But I’m generally very happy and love to eat pizza and cake and ice cream. I like TV too much but also love to play with my toys and go to the park. My grandparents spoil me and take me lots of fun places. I don’t have any friends my age, but I’m learning to play with other kids and am getting better at that, too. I’m very stubborn and persistent. My latest passions include rocketships and airplanes.

You’re going to the moon! What did you forget to pack?

Pizza. Because you can never have enough pizza.
