The Ballens’ journey is inspirational and enlightening. Journey with Julian will strike a chord with parents who are just receiving the diagnosis of autism for their child, as well as those further down the path.

Journey with Julian shows that in the end, it’s family and fierce determination that help us all to get the most out of life.
