Christmas stories

Jenny's story

Jenny wears beautiful outfits and cycled to our ALTERnativity group even in the snow! She is a brilliant listener loves bringing everyone into conversation.

She has three young children one of whom is autistic. She is married, and her husband has frequent bouts of depression. She and her family lived for most of the children's lives in Scandinavia, and she is still adjusting to a very different way of life back in Scotland.

Christmas tended to be a lot simpler for them before they came to Scotland. Extended family was a distance away, which meant that Jenny and her husband and kids were left to their own devices and could enjoy the quality time that is more scarce now they are back 'home'.
