Just an Ordinary Family : 22 years of the lives of a couple with disabilities
Both Mr. and Mrs. Akimoto have cerebral palsy. They got married in 1992 as they sought independent from their parents. Before long, the couple had two children. Child rearing by severely disabled people is almost unheard of in Japan. This couple struggles and overcomes many obstacles whilst raising their children.
20 years have passed since the couple first became parents. The oldest son, now an adult, said to us, “we are just an ordinary family.”
