My Little Brother Has Autism...

Hello im a 17 year old girl with a 16 year old brother that has autism. His case of autism isn't bad he can read and write and do math and spell and he even talks really good (he can say some words really good but struggle to say others but he eventually picks up on them) i love my brother with all my heart but sometimes i fear for the future with him. im scared that if something (god forbid) happens to me and my parent whos going to take care of him. I know that when my parents get to old that ill have to look after him but its hard for me to realize that because i want to live a normal life like the rest of my friends. have kids, get married but i know that may not happen because of my brother. i cry myslef to sleep at night thinking about my brothers future because i love him so much and want nothing bad to happen to him. so for now im just taking it day by day with my brother and making sure i keep him happy and with a smile on his face everyday :).
