We don’t normally do posts like this, but we were both riveted to the screen this morning. This is a perceptive and authoritative video explaining Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and the life-long impact even small quantities of alcohol can have on children before they are born. If you would like to better understand our child, and others like him, please give yourself 26 minutes to watch this film. The young 10-year-old girl in this film could be our son.
And please, support those around you who are or may become pregnant by helping them to avoid alcohol during those precious months. Experts in this video show the proof that even a small amount of alcohol in utero at the wrong point in development can have profound and enduring effects on a child. And please also encourage our societies to help meet the needs of those loved ones who are struggling every day of their lives with this hidden disability.
