SEAHAWKS LEGEND, 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 simple 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 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, Curt Warner speaks publicly about the challenges of raising children with disabilities. He wants to give voice to parents that share his struggle, raise public awareness of autism, and inspire hope in other families in similar situations.
“When we started this journey, more than 20 years ago, we never could have imagined the challenges and the struggles and setbacks and disappointments. We felt isolated, heartbroken and, at times, helpless.”
