Eight days ago, Claire started an eight week journey across the United States with her two friends.
This isn’t a self-indulgent On the Road type field trip. Instead, the inspiration of this trip–and a part of what ties these girls together–is a mission to talk to “sibs” across the country. For eight weeks, they’ll be gathering the stories of people with special needs siblings, covering a broad range of disorders.
You can (and should) read more about their progress and their project on their blog. For a quick summary of their goals, here’s an interview I did with Claire about her project and her motivations for it.
