To read on Mencap website, part of the Hear my voice campaign:
My lovely son Christian has a disability – it is called Fragile X. He is a handsome young man, he is happy and healthy. He cycles, loves football, loves cooking and eating and travelling on buses.

He is 14 and for the past 13 years I have been fighting for him to lead a ‘normal’/’mainstream’/’common’ life. (…)
