Years ago I knew almost nothing about FAS or FASD as is now the newer acronym. I dreamed of being a mom of starting a family. I never really had an idea of what would come. After years of infertility and miscarriages it seemed everywhere we looked we saw ads about the need for foster homes and adoptive homes. Soon we were on the journey to becoming licensed to foster. Before we knew it we were a full foster home (went from no children to 6 within a couple months!) We took children who had medical issues and who were a bit harder to place. Thus began the journey into learning what FASD (fetal alcohol spectrum disorder) was.
We now have 9 children who all have FASD. We also have children with the associated medical issues. It is a blessing to have these wonderful people in our lives but has truly at times taken us places I never expected! I hope you will join me as I tell you a bit more about our lives and also on what we have learned along the way. It won’t be boring I can promise you that.
