“I haven’t seen my sister Miriam since March this year. Luckily we were able to visit before lockdown started, but usually we see each other more than we do now (even though we live in different countries!). It’s hard being away from your loved ones. I’m sure many people can relate.

There have been quite a few changes for Miriam since the last time I saw her. It’s not easy being at distance, but it’s been very comforting and wonderful to see how she’s settled in at the Next Steps. 

Miriam can often keep herself to herself, but she has such a colourful personality and has a great sense of humor. I feel she’s at a great place where she seems to feel at home, but is also challenged to use all her abilities.

Very excited for when it is safe enough to travel again and visit! Until then, it’s lovely being able to take part with online events and staying up to date through the social media pages. Keep up the good work!”
