The O'Loughlin Family lives in suburban Cary, North Carolina on a row of similarly built houses, but nothing is similar about the O'Loughlin Family..."Marcus and his autism are all my children have really ever known," Erin said.  "Autism has always been a part of our lives, so its just a part of who they are.  I know they take in and absorb everything that goes on in our house with Marcus, except that they cope with it with the coping skills of a child.  We try our hardest to balance the needs of Marcus, versus Jordan and Brendan's needs, versus our marital needs, versus our family needs and it's all a huge balancing act."
