Journeying Through the Unknown #atozchallenge

Welcome to my Unknown Journey and my Almost Unknown Blog.

I am a blogger who has been blogging since 2009 with another blog, but has held this second blog almost secret - until now.

I am taking a chance and joining the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, a challenge I've successfully completed twice with my other blog.

Now, I am truly revealing myself, and throwing myself on the mercy of A to Z readers.  Why?  Because I want to find out if I can really write a book.  It would be a book about my experiences, my memories, my fears, and my advocacy for my brother in law, who has autism and is in his late 50's.

My theme is - Journeying Through the Unknown. 

The unknown of autism, the unknown of my brother in law's future, the unknown of the risks I will need to take and the unknown sacrifices I will need to make in the years ahead, especially once my elderly mother in law, who has been caring for him all his life, can no longer do so.

In this process I don't want to lose myself.

I have named my blog "The Unknown Journey Ahead" for just this reason.

I would love for you to accompany me through this short 30 day alphabetical journey through what I know, and what I don't know.
Come, let us travel on this Unknown Journey together.


  1. This sure is a topic close to your heart and it will be great to read them. Happy A to Z, Alana. Let's rock this April :)

  2. Oh this sounds really serious and more power to you for being so brave to write it all down! Cheers and all the luck for the challenge.

    1. Thank you, shalz75. Not brave - just saying things that need to be documented.

  3. I have family and friends on the autism spectrum. I'll be back to read what you document as often as I can.

    May you and your brother in law find peace and joy. <3

  5. Most of us don't know that much about autism. Looking forward to learning more from your A to Z posts. It's amazing how people get through this with more than one blog. You are brave!

    1. I may be crazy for trying, but we'll see what happens. Happy that you stopped by, Debbie D.

    2. Debbie, thank you also for the follow.

  6. Ah... now that is a journey that I'm going to watch with interest. Good luck.

    1. I hope it is an interesting journey for you. Thank you for stopping by!

  7. We need to speak about autism more! Thank you for choosing this as your theme! Hoping to connect with you more in April A-Z.


    1. Aditi, thank you for stopping by. I look forward to some of your stories.
