It has been four years since we have moved Sebastien, my autistic son, to Bali. Looking back, it has been a roller coaster journey of ups and downs. For over a year, while we still did not have a solid carer team, we could never be sure that we had made the correct decision.
But thanks to our chance encounter with an Italian psychologist who set my thinking straight about autism straight, and especially, and our team of loving carers, Sebastien is leading an awesome and well-rounded life that is true to his nature. He is painting, skating, farming, surfing, hiking, and looking after himself in a natural environment, while living with his surrogate Bali family.
It is like nice for Jerome and I to have an expanded carer team/community who have created this beautiful Bali Bubble for Sebastien. We look forward to visiting him soon after COVID-19.
