SibNet (Hosted by the Sibling Support Project)


Since 1996, SibNet (for adult brothers and sisters) has connected tens of thousands of sisters and brothers from around the globe with their peers, providing members with validation, information, and advice. Like the greater sibling community, SibNet has a diverse membership: We come from all economic, religious, and cultural backgrounds.  We have sibs who have autism, intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, spina bifida, fragile X, and other disabilities.  Some of us think that having a sib with a disability has enriched our lives, while others find having a sib with a disability a source of stress and even pain.  And for many more, it has been a mixed bag, with “good stuff” and “not-so-good stuff” occurring simultaneously.  All of these experiences are valid and all views are welcome on SibNet.
