Ondine Sherman, animal rights advocate and mother of disabled twins
In her early thirties Ondine Sherman's life was happily on course. She had built up the animal rights group Voiceless, she'd married, travelled the world and had a daughter.
But life changed for Ondine and her husband Dror after the birth of their identical twin boys, Dov and Lev.
At around the age of six months, they were failing to meet some important developmental milestones. The long difficult road to diagnosis ended in shock for the entire Sherman family.
Ondine has written about her journey in a new book
