Description

The Family Next Door is a story about the Lund family (4 children, 2 on the autism spectrum) and their journey into the hyper-complex and emotionally draining maze that is autism. The family was followed for 16 months and a story of never ending struggles, unexpected joys, drastically altered expectations, painful loneliness, unconditional love and hope was witnessed. Experience the first hand reality of autism and how one family’s grace, patience and determination steer them on the unpaved road of The Family Next Door.
