Autism can be a struggle not only for the individual but also the family. One family shares their journey with Autism. The Warner Boys: Our Family’s Story of Autism and Hope is an emotional, revealing memoir of one family’s life in seclusion—and the love, strength, and faith it took to save it.
It’s a moving story about how Ana and Curt Warner raised their two twin sons, Austin and Christian, who had been diagnosed with autism at a time when autism was newly being discovered, and how they coped and grew as a family together.
Scott Badesh, the president and CEO of the Autism Society of America praised the book, saying: “The Warner Boys is a beautiful heartfelt book written by Curt and Ana Warner, who share with the reader the reality of parenting two beautiful twin boys with an autism diagnosis. This book is now high on my list of must-reads for any individual, parent, or other family member impacted by autism, as well as anyone wanting to understand autism.” The book has also just received a starred review in Publishers Weekly.
About The Warner Boys
Seahawks star running back Curt Warner and his wife, Ana, were prominent figures in Seattle in the early 1990s. When they dropped from the public eye after Curt’s retirement, everyone assumed it was for a simpler life. But the reality behind their seclusion was a secret they hid from even their closest friends: their twins, Austin and Christian, had been diagnosed with severe autism. What followed was a painful struggle to hold their family and their marriage together in a home filled with chaos, emotional exhaustion, and constant fear for the safety of their unpredictable but beloved boys.
Now, after years of silence, the Warners share their inspiring journey from stardom and success to heartbreaking self-imposed isolation. Above all, it’s a story of the life-changing truth that love for family and each other—no matter how challenged—is the path to healing and peace.
The Warner Boys is the true story of a family who fought for their children and how they grew stronger against all odds.
