In Richie’s own words: “Growing up without a diagnosis of ASD was difficult to say the least; struggling immensely with everyday life”.
Not understanding where he fit into this world. carrying out different behaviours to others, but at the time he didn’t understand why he was doing them but really struggled to stop. Sharing his life through a story of how he seen the world growing up around him, struggling to understand his adoption and feeling rejected.

Mix in my adoption and child abuse, it has been a roller coaster, that I’m keen to share. “I have learned a lot about myself and became very self-aware. I feel this puts me in a very good position to share my story from my heart of my life growing up.
Now it’s time to take the blankets off!
